    Summary

    "Haven't you noticed anything…" He gestures vaguely towards Jaskier's whole personage, rounding out in the general vicinity of his face. "That nothing changes?"

    Jaskier twitches, something niggling in his brain, inclining towards Geralt's meaning.

    "I have an excellent skincare routine, which you've previously expressed a violent disinterest in, I might add," he stubbornly snaps, now anxious and jumpy for some reason, and avoiding the little voice in his head and whatever it’s trying to tell him, whatever it knows.

    "Jaskier," Geralt huffs, like Jaskier is being purposefully obtuse. Maybe he is. "You aren't aging."

    "While I thank you for the compliment - and you can pass on my message to Yennefer to stuff it about my crows feet while you're at it," he blithely retorts, "I hardly see what that has to do with your wish, or what that has do with your...your weird, uncharacteristic mood, and your blasted secrets."

    A "what if" story wherein Geralt's wish bound him to a certain someone else as well.

    Summary

    Jaskier.

    He had longer hair, shoulder length and matted. His cheeks were stubbled and tear stained. His clothes were ratty, worn, and not colorful at all. His hands bandaged. And his eyes… his eyes were nervous, and… hurt. Deeply hurt. But here his bard was, alive, petting Roach and staring at Geralt.

    Geralt moved forward and hugged the man to his chest without thought. He wasn’t expecting the flinch, nor for the bard to pull away, but Geralt let him go. He didn’t know what had come over him anyway.

    He was happy enough just to look at the man.

    “Where have you been?” He asked. “I’ve been searching for you, ever since…” he trailed off, expecting Jaskier to chime in, like he always did.

    Jaskier didn’t say anything.
