    Summary

    It began softly, slowly, gently, like a moth emerging from a cocoon. The friendship that had come to define Jack’s career, his life, became what sustained it. The presence of Stephen in his cabin at dusk until he was near sleep was something he had come to treasure in a part of his heart he thought too shallow to accept such devotion. He found himself depending on the physician for advice, comfort, for companionship on their long voyages. The steady contact they shared became a necessity, and he loved it more than he had with any other living creature.

    ---

    After Stephen's treatment at the hands of French intelligence, Jack comes to the realisation of just how much he needs and loves his friend.

    Summary

    Valjean does not ask, for he knows what Javert’s answer will be. Neither does he inform Javert of his intent, for it requires no leap of imagination to imagine the man’s reaction: his wild words, perhaps an attempt to throw something. And so it is that, when Valjean steps into the room with a heavy basin of steaming water held in his hands—he had asked his housekeeper to heat it, and yet knowing the nature of Javert’s complaints, had insisted on bearing it up himself—Javert raises his head from the sweat-stained pillows which have become his prison these past weeks, curls his lip in distaste, and says, “You presume too much.”
