    Summary

    Beatrice finds herself musing not over duty and sacrifice and God, but the truth of angels, if they can be created rather than summoned. If they can take the form of women with overeager mouths and careless limbs and eyes with a depth that beckons - a crooked finger, a spiral staircase - if they can be both human and not, both beautiful and terrifying.

    Ava asks, What do you want, Beatrice?

    (Tell me and I’ll give it to you. Tell me and I’ll build you a home there. Tell me and I’ll rearrange the universe to make it all fit, angels and demons be damned. Tell me it’s me. Me. Me.)

    Summary

    Faith has never come easy to Beatrice-- it always was a business, a honed skill, a shield against the empty lonely childhood and a grating aching adolescence shunted out of sight by her disappointed parents-- but she’s had faith in Ava since the minute they stood outside of a tomb in the Vatican catacombs and Beatrice realized that she brought the dynamite as a backup to Ava out of habit instead of actual worry. She’d always known Ava would do what they needed, would succeed and find her way through her own fear, and Ava hadn’t disappointed her.

     

     

    Michael came back. Lilith came back. Ava hasn’t disappointed her yet, and she won’t start now.
