Courage Tested
by Ainm



A/N: The first drabble I've tried that actually stayed a drabble... but it's a bit choppy. And I tried for light-hearted, and only mostly succeeded. :-)


He'd heard it before, in the Army, on the force... He'd put himself into countless life-threatening situations without a qualm -- bravery, courage, they were words often applied.

"Come on, Jim, I know how brave you are."

Had they ever held such challenge -- and had he ever really cared? Had it ever been important to prove it true?

He knew it was a dare, but he recognized there were two levels to it -- the stated request plus the unstated plea for a deeper trust. Did he have the courage to admit to that trust?

"Alright, Chief, you win -- you can drive."


The End
