She looks at him for a very long time. Even after only knowing him for a short time... she trusts him. Believes him.

"Okay."

Permalink

Relief makes him smile so hard. 

“What do you need? Is there something we could put down here to tempt your...bigger wolf?”

He bounces up onto his feet.

Permalink

"Like some sort of yummy chew toy?"

Permalink

“Well, as long as that’s not me?”

Permalink

"Not my first choice. You were all stony, before."

Permalink

"Stony?" Flo pushes a thumb into his wrist. The skin moves easily, it feels normal except for how cold it is.

Permalink

"I guess it would feel different to you. I might feel very delicate, in comparison."

Permalink

He supposed she might, were he actually able to reach out across that small distance and touch her. 

"Yeah, well. I haven't really tested the limits of my strength." Except for ripping Anders apart.

Permalink

"Usually we try to sedate me, but I'm not sure we can do that here."

Permalink

"How do you sedate a wolf?"

Permalink

"Elephant tranquilizers, pretty much. A lot of them."

Permalink

"Jesus." Flo runs a hand over his face. "I would really rather we didn't do that."

Permalink

"I'm not sure where'd be get it anyway. My aunt usually does that."

Permalink

"Can we just,  I don't know, shut you down here and wait? Without tranquillisers and locks and bars?"

Permalink

"I'll get out. This place isn't really Fort Knox. We're pretty far away from everything, but I'm fast."

Permalink

"Yes, but this is underground. We give you no way out, maybe reinforce the door, or take away the ladder, and it doesn't matter how fast you are, or how strong. No way out."

Flo blanches then, feeling a little sick. He's just trapping her a different way. 

Permalink

Sarah nods and tries a reassuring smile.

"Let's try it. I've never had a you with me before. Maybe it will make a difference."

Permalink

"At the very least, this will be an actual choice. Your choice. No more locking you in because you feel like you have to be."

Permalink

"It's a choice, yeah. Not really one I could make without you here though."

Permalink

Flo laughs, self-deprecatingly. "Yes, I have already drawn that comparison in my mind, me and your aunt."

Permalink

"I meant it in a positive way, Flo. I would go back to her if not for you. I always do."

Permalink

“Because she was the only one who knew?”

Permalink

"Because she raised me. Protected me. Kept people safe from me. I owe her." Love her.

Permalink

"You're not supposed to owe people anything who love you."

Permalink

"In theory. But it's a bit more complicated than that."
