Title: "A Few Seconds"
Fandom: Trigun
Pairing: Wolfwood = Vash implied
Word count: 100
Rating: 13 up
Warnings: Angst, violence, death, Vash POV in italic

The difference between life and death was seconds.

Alpha Ship wouldn't have exploded if it had been ten seconds behind the others. Rem would have survived for a few seconds.

They were only ticks on a clock, irrelevant units of time to a being such as himself.

Monev wouldn't have slaughtered those people if only they'd had that much warning.

Yet he could see, could watch them tick past.

Brad wouldn't have died if I could have only tackled him before that puppet opened fire.

Vash ordered another drink.

I could have saved Wolfwood if I hadn't wasted those seconds.

I subscribe to that theory too. I think if Vash hadn't buried Caine and grieved over him so much, he could have possibly been able to save Wolfwood. Instead, he lost both.

*imagines Vash beating himself over the head with a book of fan theories* ^_^
