He sits quietly and leans on her.

And eventually Anwar wakes up.

"...Erika?" he says, peering dizzily up at her.

"Yes, I'm here," she says. "I would have been sooner if I hadn't thought you were dead. If you actually die on me after I've found out otherwise I'll never forgive you."

"Ah, fuck," he mutters.

"Go have a shower, you smell like regret," says Sargon.

He makes a rude gesture, but follows this suggestion.

Erika sits and hugs one of her not-dead friends for a while longer while waiting for the other one to be done showering.

Nod. "If it's selfish of us to keep him alive I'm willing to be selfish."

"Yeah."

"Hera," she mumbles. "We'll go to Hera and then we'll figure it out from there."

Permalink

"Easy," he says wryly.

Permalink

"Easy," she muses. "I'm not convinced that exists."

Permalink

"If it does, I sure haven't seen it in a while."

Permalink

"Maybe it died."

Permalink

Snort. "Maybe it surrendered to the Alliance."

Permalink

Snort. "Not much of a difference."

Permalink

He laughs, not very happily.

Permalink

No, it wouldn't be.

"How did you find me?"
