    Summary

    No one dies, but it is close for some of them. Roy’s — not enjoying this, it’s a joke, it’s a pity job for a washed-up wanker. But it’s satisfying, it is, to see Isaac rally the team behind his bulk, to yell at O’Brien not to wimp out on his torn butt, to hear Richard swear in French while Roy taps his good foot waiting for another lap. Sam smiles wide the first time he passes where Roy’s standing, and Roy makes him do the drill again. “Don’t grin at me,” he shouts in his old captain voice, “fucking run!”

    Summary

    But now, somehow, impossibly, she’s in the water, sweating and shivering at the same time, the heat of the steam and the chill of the air and -- and Peter, his legs under hers, his hands on her back. The other thing she didn’t know, the other thing that should have been intuitive. His hands, where her stupid nightgown is clinging to her, dripping and freezing and so definitively not a bathing suit.

    “What?” Peter asks her again. His hands linger on her waist. She can feel the heat of his thumb against her bottom rib, hotter than the throbbing warmth of the water around them. He cocks an eyebrow, that mix of openness and tease, and she breaks.
