    Summary

    You feel elated. Alleviated. Mostly, however, you feel grateful.

    Her big blue eyes look back at you, bright with joy and excitement. You pull her into a hug and find they are infectious emotions, because as you press her to your chest, you feel it, too.

    It’s unadulterated happiness.

    Summary

    They may be unfinished but their foundation is solid and the walls are still standing, and whatever they were building then doesn’t matter as much as what they can build now.

    She’s afraid to trust, afraid to hope, afraid to lose again - but Elliot is a stubborn bastard and once he’s started building, not even her reticence makes him stop.

    This is how they start again.

    Summary

    The past year hadn’t been easy for either of them by any stretch of the imagination. Elliot’s reappearance, Kathy’s death, the Wheatley trial...it was as if a tropical storm had made landfall and left nothing untouched.

    Days like this though...they reminded her that sometimes beautiful things come after the storm.

    Summary

    Still, she had weapons of her own. She wanted to scream at him, but she decided on a different method. She decided to make a point. She wanted him to know that she wasn’t afraid of his anger, that she wasn’t afraid of him. That she wasn’t going to let him control her.

    But even more than that, she wanted to show him that, if she wanted, she could control him.
