Staggering... a few... steps.
Fight it!
Try not to fall.
Everything about me is trembling, like a foal born too soon into the biting jaws of midwinter.
My vision's blurred; but someone moves.
Cole's arms. Stretching to reach me.
Mickey, too.
They see me? I'm alive!
And sobbing.
My head swims and the room sways from side to side.
And when my legs start to buckle I feel warm arms around me, pulling me upright, arms that reached around, supporting me from behind.
Before everything goes black, I turn my head and look up into the face of Clint Dempsey.
