Hospital Bed

PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

Blue eyes glimpsed brown. "I'm sorry," he rasped from his throat, as soon as he awoke, watching his girl in the chair next to him, clutching his dogtags. he thought of all the things they'd never be able to do now, he clutched at his left shoulder. She almost wept, "No baby, shhh, it's okay," hands threaded themselves into his, "none of that mattered anyways, except you. I love you," she whispered and tears streamed from both their eyes. "I...
