WOTD: Astraphobia | 100 Words | Steve/Danny | H50
I've not been on here in around 3 years, but I've had a craving to resume my fic writing.

========================

The thunder echoed throughout the trees as Steve and Danny hiked back to their tent.

"You said the weather would be fantastic, Steven. Why did I let you con me into this?"

"The weather is unpredictable, Danno. When we're back, let's dry off and put those blankets to use."

"The lightning doesn't concern you?"

"You saying you're scared?"

"I don't have astraphobia. I'm rightfully concerned. If I die in a lightning-induced forest fire, I leave Gracie alone."

"Astraphobia?"

"Fear of thunder and lightning, you animal."

Steve checks his phone.

"It'll pass in a half hour. Don't worry about it, Danno."
