She quickly changes into new clothes and... sits in her car. Staring at their coins.

Permalink

They have 35 ternions, 19 balances, and 3 (or 4) cinques left. He counted them yesterday.

Rain picks up one of the ternions and tries to wish his hair to be and grow a very pale blond.

Nothing happens.

"Well," Rain says, softly.

Permalink

"Use a balance. People can test hair to see if it has dye on it."

Permalink

Rain nods, trades the ternion for a balance, and wishes.

His hair changes.

Permalink

Skye does the same thing with another balance, and then uses a ternion to change the colour of her eyes.

Permalink

"...pretty," Rain says, softly, and then hands her the cinque on its chain.

Permalink

She turns it over in her hands, staring at it.

They need to hurry, they need to leave, but....

Permalink

"If you want to wait until we're out of town, and not have to hurry -- " Rain says, softly.

Permalink

"No, it's fine. Just. Seems too easy. Even after everything."

Permalink

Rain hugs her, wordlessly.

They need to go, but she knows that too.

Permalink

She hugs him tight and --

Seb gave this coin to her for this. He wanted her to have this. She's wanted this since she knew how to be.

She closes her eyes and makes the wish.

Permalink

The cinque vanishes from her hand, and her body shifts, subtly.

It feels perfectly natural.

Permalink

"Rain?"

Permalink

"Yes," he replies.

Permalink

She hugs him. Everything she wanted and needed. They're going to be okay.

"I love you."

Permalink

He hugs her back. "Love you."

And then, after a moment: "Did you pack a thing... for your..." he gestures at her chest vaguely.

Permalink

She blushes bright pink and hides her face against his shoulder.

"Mmm no. Nope. Because I just -- didn't think about it."

Permalink

"Love you," he says, blushing too. "We can get something in the next town?"

Permalink

"I have a stop planned a little while away. We can figure it out then."

Permalink

"Smart," Rain says. "We should --"

Permalink

"Yeah. Let's get out of here."

Permalink

"We never have to come back here again."

Permalink

"Never again." She starts the car, clicks the door open and pulls out of the garage. "Just the two of us now."

Permalink

Rain leans against her, smiling.

Permalink

So they drive and she keeps a tight hold of his hand.

They keep driving until they hit a small, hidden nook just outside of town and park. She gets her laptop out and connects to her phone back at Rain's old house, and dials it out to the police. When it connects to the operator, she plays the recording. It's hard to listen to. Eventually the recording ends and she disconnects the phone, and cleans up her presence.

They watch on her laptop as the authorities respond to the call, waiting until the bodies are found.

Then they leave. Not looking back. Together.
