Characters: Jamie Madrox, Candice Wilmer
Summary: Back in New York, one partner watches over another in the aftermath of the Texas 'mishap'.
He was going to kill her when he came to. And if Jamie didn't, Kirin would sure as hell try. It was a fact of life and she'd better accept it. Not that she could blame them. In five years of working with Jamie and another two of being partnered with him, he'd never gotten hit by a bullet because of her.
He'd never gotten hit period.
