Very short story. It has lots going for it. The action, the rescue, the bond between the two characters. But it's so short I had to accept a lot on, well, faith, that both characters were still in synch with one another. Still the rescue, the action was interesting, it was a really quick read. I was done while waiting in for an appointment. It reads like a good H/C fanfic of about 5000 words in Generation Kill fandom.
