Summary: A brief look at Gene on Sam’s first night in hospital
A/N: A fairly extreme case of Real Life has meant that I haven’t been around much this year apart from the drabble challenges. However, I’m still very much in the fandom, and still writing when I get time. If anyone remembers my Survival series, I haven’t forgotten it for a moment, and I have several stories for it almost finished. When RL lets up for a moment I hope to get those done and posted.
In the meantime, this drabble was originally the opening paragraph to another story for the series, but Annie took that over and turned it into a Porntober wank!fic (which should be posted soon) so I thought I’d rescue this and post it separately.

“Come on, Guv, give me the glass now, you need to get some kip. Be ready for Sam when he wakes up, OK? He’s going to need you nice and strong.”
“Was the only one I ever wanted,” Gene slurred, his head beginning to drop.
“I know.” She smiled at him affectionately. “Knew before you did, I reckon.” She took the glass deftly as it tilted across his lap.
“My Sam... only one...”
