"Engine room," Erie tells her, already getting to his feet. "He's okay."

Permalink

She's on her feet shortly after him, despite some winces, her breathing rapid.

She takes his hand, once she is, and holds it tightly.

Permalink

"He's fine," he repeats, squeezing her hand gently, and starting to lead the way.

Permalink

'He is,' Wrath confirms to Envy. 'I gave him a protein bar, and he's curled up fairly near the entrance.'

Permalink

Lee acknowledges Erie's words with a slight nod as she follows him, and after few moments she starts trying to regulate her breathing.

Permalink

It doesn't take them long to make it down, but he hesitates outside the door. '...Wrath?'

Permalink

'Well back. Not in sight of the door, don't worry.'

Permalink

And he palms the door open, his hesitation this time because of the sheer heat that emanates from the room.

Permalink

"oh," Lee says, softly. No wonder Star went here, really.

Her hand tightens further around Erie's, as she looks around what she can see from the door for Star. (Erie wouldn't have brought her here if he thought she would be unsafe, she knows, he would have asked her to stay -- but, but -- )

Permalink

"We're safe," Erie tells her, starting to draw her inside - Star isn't immediately visible from the door, but he can't be too far back, or Wrath would've given them directions.

Permalink

"You brought me," she agrees, letting him lead her inside, looking around for Star.

Permalink

"Yeah. 'Zactly."

He leads her a little deeper.

Permalink

And there's Star, half dozing against part of the engine.

Permalink

"Star?" Lee murmurs, softly.

Permalink

He jerks fully awake and blinks at them, like he isn't entirely certain where he-

"Oh. Sorry."

Permalink

Lee crouches down, near him, still holding tightly to Erie's hand. "Hey," she says, softly."Were you cold?"

Permalink

He blinks, and then nods slowly. "I- should've- I don't- remember-" (Deciding to leave, leaving...)

Permalink

Erie squeezes her hand. (Got your back.)

Permalink

"Okay," Lee says, gently. "We're okay; we can worry about that later?"

She takes a breath. "Erie, what can we do about the cold?"

Permalink

"More nest materials immediately," he says. "Long term... I'd need to talk to the others. Got a few ideas, but need help."

Permalink

Lee takes a breath, and nods.

She's shivering, a bit.

"Star? You hear that?"

Permalink

Star nods slowly, but deliberately.

Permalink

"Do you know what you want to do?" she asks, softly.

Permalink

"I- no. I don't-"

Permalink

Lee makes a soothing noise.
