As he sat alone by the fire, Charlie watched the flames flicker and dance while he thought back over the past few days. His eyes shifted to where he could see Desmond sitting, his posture speaking of a man with a lot on his mind. He was still a curiosity in many ways; a puzzle needing solving. Charlie wondered if there would be time enough to get to know Desmond, or if he may as well stick to just the surface. If Desmond was wrong about fate, Charlie's flame may be snuffed out at any time. Rising, he crossed the short distance to join the other man.
