Headache - A Drabble

by Ceryndip

Blair tossed his book on top of the afghan covering his lap and rubbed the bridge of his nose, "It's no good."

"What's wrong, Chief?" Jim asked from the other sofa where he had been watching television, alert for any changes in Blair's condition. He'd been down with a cold since yesterday.

"Reading makes my eyes hurt, giving me a headache but I really need to get through this."

Jim shut off the television and slid to the floor beside Blair. He picked up the book and began reading aloud at the page with the bookmark.

"Jim, you don't have to."

"Hush, Chief, you let me know if your ears start giving you a headache."

Blair smiled wearily, picked up his pad and began making notes as his Sentinel read to him.

"Thanks Jim."
