Francis took a deep breath, nodding acknowledgement. "It can't be helped," he decided aloud, and set the lantern down beside himself - not without difficulty, since he was still pulling with all his weight on the reins. "Here. Here, take these. Get a good footing, and take these." These being the reins, which he indicated with his free hand, beckoning the other man closer.

He didn't have a plan, not precisely. It would have been easier, he thought, if he had a rope, or some kind of board to help support the poor animal. But if he could just have both hands free to help him calm the panicked horse, to get some purchase...

It hadn't even occurred to him, really, to leave the horse to die. That wasn't how his mind worked.
