Playing with fire

It was the third time in a week. Becker had watched Matt throw himself into more dangerous situations, most recently running into the path of a charging triceratops (he said he was just trying to distract it from the civilians).

Becker was worried that one day, Matt’s luck would run out and one of those stupid stunts would get him killed. He didn’t even like to think about that; it had taken them over a year to acknowledge how they felt about each other and they were happy. He couldn’t handle losing Matt now. He knew it would destroy him.

Matt knew Becker was mad at him; he’d barely said two words to him since they got back. Back at the ARC, Matt followed Becker back to his office.

“What have I done wrong?”

Becker didn’t answer.

“Hils, please.”

“I can’t do this any more,” Becker said quietly.

“What? The ARC? The anomalies?” Matt’s chest tightened. “Be with me?”

Becker still didn’t look at him. “I can’t stand by and watch you self-destruct. You’re acting like an adrenalin junkie, jumping into danger without thinking.” He finally met Matt’s eyes. “I love you too much to watch you get yourself killed.”
