    Summary

    He shouldn’t read it. Even if their bond afforded him insight to her thoughts and feelings, he should allow her this privacy. But his eyes betrayed him, sliding back to the words of their own accord. He caught “I love you” and prickly heat speared his chest. What was this, a farewell note to some amour? The defector perhaps?

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Battle of Crait, Rey struggles to find her place among the Resistance. However, her lingering Force bond with Kylo— Ben— whatever name he calls himself— complicates things, blurring the line between friend and foe.

    When the tension threatens to boil over and a desperate plan goes awry, Rey begins to wonder whether there really is a line between light and dark after all.
