"Need to go out of town, to the PO box, to pick up the rest of what I ordered. Mostly camping supplies, a few outfits and some food and water. Then we should pack the car."

Permalink

Rain nods.

He's content to lean against her, and be together in silence, for now.

Permalink

It's nice. Eventually they get all that sorted, pack the car and then head on over to her parents house.

Permalink

They are both at work, and she lets them in.

Permalink

Rain holds her hand.

Permalink

She walks over to the mantelpiece and the single framed picture that remains of her. It's of the whole family in a rare instance when Seb was around for Thanksgiving.

Permalink


Rain hugs her.

Permalink

She leans against him and takes out a ternion from her pocket.

"We shouldn't touch it, or leave traces that we did something to it."

Permalink

Rain nods. "Even if we're faking our deaths, you think it'll be too suspicious if it's gone?"

Permalink

"On top of everything else. Yeah."

Permalink

Rain tightens his arms around her. "Okay. I'm so sorry."

Permalink

She twists the coin around on her hand and... wishes for her face in the photo to be distorted in such a way that it looks like it happened naturally and she is unrecognisable.

Permalink

The coin vanishes from her hand, and the photo distorts, as if it was splashed with water.

Permalink

She stares at it for moment before taking a deep breath.

"I never have to come back here ever again."

Permalink

"Not ever," he promises.

Permalink

"Let's go then. I've done everything I needed to do, and have everything I need."

Permalink

Rain nods, and gently leads her out of the house.

Permalink

They spend the rest of the afternoon at her grandmother's house, with the woman herself off on another holiday. She prerecords a call for help to the police. It's hard and she has to start over a few times, but eventually she gets it. She does some computer tech-wizardry and adds in a bunch of details that will make it authentic as possible. They go through the rest of their plan, going over and over and over it. When eventually Rain has to head home for dinner.

There's no way Rain's dad will let her stay for another night, so Skye waits in her garage with her car, getting a few more hours of work in on the warlock tracker and then sneaks into his room and rests. This is the last time they will ever have to do this. The thought fills her with joy and anxiety and a little bit of fear. But mostly hope.

Permalink

Rain snuggles up against her in his sleep.

Permalink

He wakes before his father will, and wakes her too so she can sneak out again.

Permalink

She gives him the biggest cuddles before she leaves, and then heads to her garage to wait the hour until his dad is gone.

Permalink

Rain sends her a blank text when his father is leaving.

Permalink

She waits a few minutes then heads on over, hood up and making sure she isn't noticed by anyone. It's still dark, so she does well. She knocks on the back door, not wanting to be seen at the front.

Permalink

Rain lets her in, holding two balances.

Permalink

She takes his hand.

"Are you ready?"
