She might not think she needs a hero… but piecing her back together might be my biggest save yet.
I've seen it all working on the squad truck. Sometimes death is inevitable and I've learned to accept I can't always be the hero. But something about the Signal 41 call I worked, leaves me feeling like I failed. And when I watch the victims mother crumble to pieces in front of me, something inside me breaks.
I shouldn't want her the way I do. But seeing what she's going through, I can't walk away. She might not think she's ready for me, but I'm not going anywhere. If there is anything being a firefighter has taught me, it's not to quit. Life might have kicked Carson down, but I'll prove love can heal her wounds.
