Quote / Prompt:
... "I'm fine. I'll be fine."
"Murph, I've never seen you with a drink in your life. And Valium? It makes me worry about you."
"Dresden, if you came over here to lecture me, you can leave right now."
I shoved my fingers through my shaggy hair. "Karrin, I swear I'm not lecturing. I'm just trying to understand."
She looked away from me for a minute, one foot rubbing at the opposite calf. It hit me how small she looked. How frail. Her eyes were not only weary, I saw now. They were haunted.
I walked over to her and put a hand on her shoulder. Her skin was warm underneath the cotton of her T-shirt. "Talk to me, Murph. Please."
She pulled her shoulder out from under my hand.

Summary: Something has happened to Kincaid. As they talk it over, Harry finds out something mind-boggling about Kincaid's and Murphy's relationship. The rest is history.
Spoilers: Not really any, except for the characters' personalities.
Author's Note: I was too excited about writing my first-ever fanfic to find beta readers. Sorry in advance! Along the same lines, I have never written a fanfic before. I don't know if I'm any good at it. Please be at least somewhat gentle with the criticism ... haha.
