A Gun for Barns: New chapter posted

The final chapter of Part 2 is now posted on AO3: A Fine Romance.

~ ~ ~

Gunnar was staring at one of the dead lurks. "It looks like — like —" The words wouldn't even come.

"Like what? Fish? Monster?" Boone stepped closer.

"No, it's — the, the thing in the story! That moves!" He could see it in his mind's eye, but couldn't even see the words. The frustration made him angry, and he slammed his fist against the rock wall, which hurt because a jagged rock wall always wins.

Gunnar sucked in his breath and held his now-stinging hand. "I can't remember the words!" he cried, wishing he could, angry that he couldn't.

Boone put his arm around Gunnar's shoulders and pulled him in. "You will."

Gunnar pressed his cheek against Boone's. Lost words. Lost memories. Lost home. Lost mind? He closed his eyes as Boone's arms went around him.

Steady. Calm down. And he did. It felt good, Boone steady as any rock. After a moment Gunnar put his arms around Boone, and they stood together in the near-dark.
