Lewis fic: Armour (drabble)

Author: lindenharp
Title: Armour
Characters: James Hathaway
Genre: gen, drabble, angst
Length: 100 words
Rating: All ages
Spoilers/Warnings: none
Summary:
Sometimes, James needs his armour. A closer look at a scene in Dead of Winter.
A/N: Beta by wendymr.




Why Crevecoeur?  With luck he’ll only have to ask a few questions before moving on.  Perhaps he’ll speak to some newly-hired groundskeeper who’s never heard of James Hathaway.  And if God is at all merciful, he won’t encounter His Lordship.

You are not a frightened child.  You’re an adult, a university graduate, a policeman.

He spots familiar faces ahead.  DCs Hooper and Parry, investigating the shooting.  Oh, joy.

He puts on a smirk and a swagger like a warrior donning armour, and dredges up some historic trivia.  If he’s sufficiently annoying, perhaps they won’t notice that his hands are shaking.

THE END
