"I'd chosen to live and then the chair broke."

Duck put his finger on Dan's lips. The doctor didn't want him stressing his bruised vocal cords. Right now, Duck was focused on the fact Carol did cut Dan down. She hadn't seen him right away, but after that she'd found a ladder and a knife. Saved his life. The doctor figured Dan had lost consciousness as she was pulling into the drive.

That she'd then stuffed Dan in a closet--

Dan hugged him hard. Duck returned it. Too close. The names never did come out. He doubted most of the men from the Watch would either. They had wives, or parents with expectations, jobs they were afraid of losing.

"She'd stopped me before. At my house."

Duck's blood went cold. Carol had asked him if he smelled gas. He just thought she was wound up. He started to ask about the bridge.

Later. For now they could eat soup, walk in the woods, and sit close together on the couch. He should work on his own house. He made sure the roof was good, pipes, all of that, look bad in his business otherwise, but he'd only shifted things around in the kitchen, hadn't done more than had one of his mom's friends take what clothes the church rummage sale could sell.

"Want to help me clean out some closets?" He smiled as Dan grinned. Wilby was wonderful.

\o/ Realistically sweet; very reminiscent of the movie.

This is wonderful. I like that Dan seems to feel the need to confess or explain and Duck having the ability to put that all aside for now. It's very real, and sweet, and quiet, much like the movie.

A nice follow up to the movie, sweet and moving, just like the film. Well done and thanks for sharing it.

Definitely fits within the movie, and I like how you connected their talk back to Carol's accidental intervention earlier in the day.
