Drabble written for the [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words word of the day prompt: Gentle.

Lost

"I have to warn you, Detective, you'll find him very changed from the man you knew."

Danny's eyes flick to the figure sitting motionless in the chair under the tree, big hand resting on the head of the dog beside him. Steve, missing in action for so long and finally located.

The sister continues, her voice soft with pity and kindness. "His head injuries were severe; he was unconscious for several weeks. We don't know how much he actually understands. He's very gentle but he won't speak to anyone, except to that stray who's adopted him. He calls it 'Danny'…"

so broken. oh Steve...and his companion Danny. I wonder if he'll recognize who Danny is.

You have an excellent way of packing so much emotion into 100 words!

I figured that the one thing that might remain was some shadowy not-quite-memory of Danny...

Writing it made me sniffle a bit too, truth be told. Good thing nobody else was in the office...

This brought tears to my eyes! Poor Steve has been through so much and without his Danno by his side.

I figured that somehow,even in his damaged brain, that name would be associated with 'faithful friend'...

Oh! Someone else said it, but it's so true: you get so much into a drabble. This is heartbreakingly gorgeous. ;-)
