    Summary

    Ruby is on the driveway, head bowed as if praying or just too heavy to hold up, her outline cast in silver. The shattered moon hangs above her like it might envelop her in the curve of its crescent. This is the last place she belongs. She looks pale, the pink flush drained from her cheeks, the shine absent from her eyes. Shoulders hunched, she’s folded in on herself, like a flower no longer seeking out the light. Weiss wishes she could give her some sun-drenched place to flourish in. But she’s not sure a place like that exists for them anymore.

    *

    Ruby thinks she can save them all on her own, and Weiss reminds her there's nothing they can't do if they do it together.

    Summary

    Robyn stands, lacing her fingers and stretching her arms above her head, a gesture so lazy and youthful, Winter remembers her doing the exact same thing after a long class at the academy, when they were just eighteen and competing to impress in their sparring class. It had all been so simple. Pretending to hate Robyn when they sparred and then making eyes at her in the dormitory hallway. Catching Robyn smile at her as she was unlocking her own room from across the hall had felt like someone, anyone was seeing Winter for the first time.

    Winter stands too, to show Robyn to the door, but she stops when Robyn asks, “So are we still on for drinks on Friday? As enjoyable as this has been.”

    Asking that question in her work office makes Winter blank out. Worlds should not be colliding like this. Her work was her work, the place where she should act disgusted of the woman who was expelled from Atlas Academy and became a rogue huntress on the streets of Mantle. Meeting Robyn for drinks every other Friday was its own thing, the jagged piece of her life that doesn’t fit but Winter can’t let go of.

    Summary

    “Ranger Xiao Long,” Winter lifted her chin, “The Grimm are coming back. The only question left is this: Would you rather die here, or in a Jaeger?”

    Summary

    “What did I tell you before leaving?” Yang asks. Her tone is neutral, mild, studiedly unaffected.

    “That I wasn’t allowed to come.”

    “And what did you do?”

    “I came.” Blake licks her lips, a little defiant. “Twice.”

    Yang breaks into a smile, delighted by the bit of push back. “What do you think you deserve, Blake?”
