claryclark:

Happy Friday! As a reminder posting schedule changes next week and I’ll be updating less frequently. 

A/n: Some of you who read the original incarnation of this story might be a little confused. I’ve included a clarification at the end of the chapter. 

As always thanks to beta @notevenjokingfic who really helped me work out the kinks in this chapter, to grammar queen @lburks226, to @happytoobservenolongerdistant and her eye for details and @jack-andthestalk who gives the best feedback and encouragement. 

Enjoy! 💕

Chapter Twelve: A Case Of You 

Despite the frustration wrought by the conversation with Grey, as well as the ominous cloud of Murtagh’s observation, Jamie was in an incredibly good mood. He couldn’t remember the last time he smiled for no reason. He’d have to say that his last genuine smile had been with his Da the day before he died as they laughed together, working on that dumb old pickup. During his years with Colum, all of his smiles had a purpose: smile to charm, to manipulate, to ensnare, to seduce. None of those smiles were him, not really. And then, he met a curly-haired Sassenach in line at a coffee house and she had a smile on his face — wide and real— within seconds.

He was just now leaving that same coffee house with a paper bag full of special birthday muffins, turning in the direction back towards his flat, when his phone started to ring. He frowned down at the screen, not recognizing the number.

“Hello?”

Scalpel
& Needle III

Part II – Climacterium

Harsh words, meaning given
only by anger. Unthoughtfulness, by those who occupy our every thought.
Memories, both those that won’t leave us and those who ran away, covered by the
cloak of indefinition brought on by years gone. The small and painful betrayals
of our bodies, disconnecting from our will.

All those wounds that ache
deep, inflicted not by the razor of massive loss or shortcoming, but by small
paper cuts of everyday life. Our immaterial bodies are scarred with those paper
cuts and some days are like a magnifying glass for all those scabs.

It was not a good day.

In spite of her irregular schedule at work, Claire had always been a
good sleeper – with the honourable exception of the time when Jamie had been
serving in The Doctors Without Borders;
and the weeks he had spent walking through the valley of shadows of healing at
her place.  But for the last few weeks,
her slumber had been disrupted; she woke up frequently with a sense of
pointless urgency, only to discover her body cold with a shimmer of sweat. The
days had become harder to bear, as she had some trouble focusing, and her
strong temperament seemed to be easily triggered.
