    Summary

    Din had wondered if Xi'an's usual state of bloodlust mixed with, well, straight-up lust was just how she was, or if something… someone, had made her that way. Part of him felt guilty for not sticking around to figure that out. The other part knew she would likely have killed him before he managed to do it.

    He was lucky enough to have at least one good experience early on. She wasn't. Then life got in the way and knocked them both down. Horrible experiences made them both what they were and brought them together. He managed to break free and claw his way back to the road to redemption.

    She didn't.

    Summary

    It’s slow going, keeping his pace unhurried while the child trails behind on the path. He turns to look back every so often and sometimes the kid sees him and hastens to catch up; other times, he finds the child standing in place, big eyes watching an insect crawling up a nearby tree or little hands petting curiously at a patch of soft moss he’s found. They make their slow progress down the path and he waits for the telltale whining that will eventually come, a sign of tired legs and a desire to give up exploring and opt to be carried instead.

    Summary

    “I’m fine,” said Din, making a calming motion with his free hand. “Just need to get a sling for this.”

    At that, the kid made another, slightly more plaintive noise. His head tilted, eyes wide.

    Din wished he could pinch the bridge of his nose. “I’ll be five minutes, kid. Just sit tight.”
