    Summary

    Now she’s here, back in his territory, she can feel Hades’ presence pulling at her, drawing her in. She wonders if he can feel her too. He’ll be confused, surprised that she came. But, hopefully, he’ll be pleased.

     

    Gods, she hopes he’ll be pleased.

     

    Persephone doesn't feel like waiting six months before she sees him again. They've wasted too much time waiting.

    Summary

    “Allmother?” Max asks.

    “Hmm?” Furiosa asks, automatically.

    “They call you ‘Allmother’,” Max says. “Met some Rocketboys last month that spat whenever they said it. Didn’t know they meant you.”

    The look on his face suggested he was severely disappointed, as if he intensely regretted whatever he had done to the Rocketboys. If Furiosa knew him, which she suspected she did, Max regretted killing them so quickly.

    Summary

    In the hospital, after the battle, the colonel and the lieutenant find ways to take their minds off nightmares.

     

    “This thing we do, sir,” she said, too tired for their typical misdirection. “Let’s not do it tonight. We can do it tomorrow, and the day after that, but I think it’d be…nice, if we didn’t do it tonight. Sir.”

    Summary

    A girl kneels on a train platform, head between her elbows, elbows tucked to knees, like a comma, like it’s not over, just stopped for a spell, like this whole thing is gonna keep going, and she don’t move. And then behind her, a man walks up and folds his dark glasses back into his breast pocket, one-two, click-click.
