"Yeah," Erie hugs her a little tighter. "Uh...it's kind of. Wrath's domain? And she's...weird about people being in there when she isn't. People who she's not sure would survive the engines fucking up that is."

Her breathing goes fast and quick, and she presses against him. "You said -- safe," she manages after a moment, half reminding herself, and then: " -- but -- but how?" (how were the safe, how was that possible--)

...He doesn't know how to explain this.

"We don't hurt each other," he says slowly. "And you and Star...you're kids. Star especially. And-"

-And he's not sharing what he knows about Wrath and Lust, not right now, not without asking them.

She presses her face into his shoulder. "You wouldn't put us in danger," she murmurs, as much to herself as to him. "You would have -- tried to get us to leave, after we rescued Star, probably -- you think we're safe, I know that, I just -- it's -- hard to think of -- the others -- as something where that's -- possible? Especially -- her."

She leans into the hug. "Yeah. I -- it helps, so much, that you're so sure we're safe?" (She doesn't know where she'd be without that, but it wouldn't be good.) "It's just --"

She shakes her head slightly. "I -- I don't even know how much of this is, them, and how much is just -- me? Star's doing much better with it --"

"Helped you rescue me," Star points out, snuggling closer, still sleepy, but obviously awake enough to be tracking the conversation, shrugs a little. "'Nd they're- People who did this were..." He doesn't know how to finish that sentence.

"Yeah," she says, quietly, reaching out to wrap her arms around both of them. "I -- it just --" she shakes her head, wordlessly.

"S'a lot," Star mumbles.

"Yeah," she agrees, wearily.

(But she has them, and it's more than worth it for that.)
