There had been no end.
He had kept chasing her. No rest. No reprieve. The Super Soldier's pursuit had been relentless.
She hadn't known if she would survive. She just knew that she had to keep going. She had to keep pressing forward. In the end, she knew that he would be there. He would be waiting for her.
And then it happened. Just when she thought she couldn't run anymore, it was over.
Sam exhaled, releasing some of the pain. As her adrenaline waned and reality set in, she felt the fear, the hurt, the shock take over.
But then there was the warmth of his touch, the comfort of his presence as he let her rest beside him. He held her – there, unshamed, in the open – making her feel real, protected, secure. He was her rock.
"It's okay," he said, whispering to her. "It's over now."
It was over. And she didn't have to run anymore.
Neither of them had to run anymore.
