Cold fear settles over Solonna. The idea of Abstergo not being a threat is her greatest dream. And for her son to so easily disregard it-

"Desmond. They are a very real threat."

Permalink

"Then why are we the only ones fighting them?! Why aren't they being bombed, like the terrorists? It's bullshit!" 

Permalink

He's young. He hasn't seen what you've seen. He doesn't know what you do

"Because they hide themselves well, in ways that we won't. We won't hide behind civilians." 

Permalink

Her words don't reach Desmond, whose pride has been injured. No matter how hard he tries, he can never meet up to his father's expectations of him. 

"We're hiding because dad's a coward. If there was an enemy out there, we wouldn't hide. We'd fight it."

Permalink

"Mijo, you don't know their strength, how they can-"

Permalink

"Because no one will tell me!" 

Tears are bright in Desmond's eyes, before he dashes them away, furious.

Permalink

It's only then Solonna sees where she went wrong. 

"Mijo-" she tries. 

Permalink

But Desmond is already stalking away, embarrassed. 

Permalink

"Desmond!" She calls out, her heart aching for her young boy, but knowing he wasn't ready for the weight of the things she knew. 

"He'll be all right. Children always want more than they can handle." A hand grips Solonna's shoulder comfortingly. She reaches up to grip it. 

"He'll never be ready for the weight on his shoulders," she says.

Meanwhile, carefully hidden in a tall, scraggly pine tree, Sean peers into the only clear path to The Farm. 

Permalink

There's a quiet rustle, like someone climbing up behind him. 

Permalink

Sean works hard to keep his body still, his face neutral, even as his chest feels tight. He already knows who it is. 

Permalink

And then, with incredible grace, Zavier drops onto the platform, just in front of Sean. 

"I nearly had you." He grins.

Permalink

Sean can't help the lilt of his lips, but is quick to press the smile back down. 

"Zavi, I'm on duty. What do you want?"

Permalink

Zavier slumps down next to Sean, long limbs splayed akimbo. "I was bored. Thought I'd come keep you company."

Permalink

"Uh huh." 

Sean spares Zavi one look, and smirks. "You were on kitchen duty, weren't you?"

Permalink

"Ugh." Zavi falls onto his back, face disgusted. "I hate kitchen duty."

Permalink

"Awww, princess. Too hard for you?"

Permalink

Zavi punches Sean's thigh in retaliation, but laughs. 

"I'm too beautiful for that nonsense."

Permalink

Sean laughs, but there's a stone in his gut. 

He's incredibly aware of just how beautiful Zavi is. 

Permalink

Zavi lets the silence hold for a moment, while he watches Sean stare intently at the road. 

"So...caught any wandering Templars? Any armies coming to crush us?"

Permalink

"Nope. Road's as quiet as ever." 

Permalink

"And yet you stare at the road like it's going to disappear."

Permalink

"I was told to watch the road, so I'm going to watch the road."

Permalink

"No one is coming, Sean, you can look away for a bit."
