She takes a deep breath - what's this going to cost her, and can she find it in herself to care right now - and nods, still clinging to Esca.

Permalink

"Alright. 'Ll give you a few minutes to get yourself ready? Gonna get May to give us a portal, like how we got you here?"

Permalink

Nod. Cling.

Permalink

Drex nods to her, and leaves, taking the tray with him.

Permalink

Esca snuggles closer again, and snuffles at her hair.

Permalink

She stays clinging to him. Cries, a little, again. She's supposed to be getting ready to go, but - she doesn't actually know how to do that - so she'll just stay here.

Permalink

Five minutes later there's a knock on her door again. "Hey?" Drex calls softly.

Permalink

She jerks a little, but uncurls and sits up, leaning on one arm for balance. "Mmm."

Permalink

Drex pauses. "Would you like a hand up?"

Permalink

She nods.

Permalink

He moves closer, and offers her his hand. (Even if she's nodded, he's not taking it as read that he has permission to touch her.)

Permalink

She doesn't hesitate before taking it. (It's not at all clear, and hasn't been, whether she understands that she has a choice in the matter.)

Permalink

-that can be worked on. She'll figure it out eventually. He helps her to her feet.

Permalink

Esca jumps down off the bed, and continues to stay close to her.

Permalink

"Walker again?"

Permalink

Nod.

Permalink

Well, it's still fairly close to hand, he helps her sit down on it.

A portal, the same white as before, is opening in the dooryway, into a room that is best described as 'cosy'. There's a single bed tucked against one wall, an overfilled bookshelf in one corner, with a chair beside it.

"Okay?" Drex rumbles as he pushes her towards it.

Permalink

She glances around the room, eyes not lingering on any one thing. She tenses up a little once she's taken it in, hesitating, but nods.

Permalink

"I'm gonna let Aaren and 'Chelle know you're here. Do you feel up for meeting 'Chelle now?"

Permalink

Esca sits down beside Denice.

Permalink

She pauses first to think about it, but nods again, more confidently this time.

Permalink

He nods, and pads out the door.

Permalink

Esca rests his head back in her lap.

Permalink

She pets him, and... yup, crying again, just a little.

Permalink

He nuzzles her hand.
