    Summary

    The rhythmic sound of metal on wood comes to a stop. Netossa doesn’t say anything for a long moment as pressure builds behind Catra’s eyes and threatens to spill down her cheeks. The humiliation is nearly too much to bear by the time Netossa speaks. “You… don’t know what a wife is?” she asks.

     

    Catra hunches down even more, until her shoulders are below her knees. “No,” she says.

     

    They don't teach you about wives in the Horde, but Catra wants to learn.

    Summary

    You had your body and I had mine, and it was a miracle. Your hands against my face were a miracle. The rest of your meat attached to your hands was a prayer answered and a promise broken, but we were flush and gasping and alive, and Harrow—I really thought you might’ve kissed me then.

    But I felt it happen. The way your breath suddenly stilled, and your body locked up beneath mine, remembering. How with splintering gentleness, you pushed me away.

    “I’m so sorry,” was the second thing you said upon waking.

    The first thing had been my name.

    Stranded in a safehouse on an Edenite moon, Gideon and Harrow try to put themselves back together.

    Summary

    They stay that way for a long time, Catra’s face tucked into Adora’s shoulder, Adora gently cradling Catra’s head. Adora is careful not to hug Catra too hard or make her feel restrained, anticipating the moment that Catra will start to pull away — but Catra doesn’t. She hangs on so tightly it hurts, her claws digging through Adora’s jacket and into her back, latching into her like she did when she was a kitten and didn’t know how much her claws could hurt. Adora tries not to wince, tries not to move a single muscle, worried that if she does the spell will break and Catra will struggle away, appalled at having shown weakness.

    But Catra doesn’t let go. And so neither does Adora.
