Elijah looked over at her, slightly startled. "No one knows that," he said, frowning at her.

"yeah, well you brought me here once," Norah said as she looked out the window, "That was the first time you really let down your walls with me," Norah said, remembering how candid he'd been with her as they sat together at the look out.

"Why would I do that?" He asked, even though he was doing exactly that right then. He pulled over to the lookout but stayed sitting in the car.

Norah smiled a little and shrugged, "I don't know, you must have felt comfortable sharing with me," Norah said. She looked over at him, hoping she was getting through to him; even just a little bit, "When we were at the safe house together, you know what you told me? You said that I'm the only thing that's made you feel like you can breathe again in a long time," she said, "it's the same for me," Norah added

Elijah worried his bottom lip, looking out the windshield at the view. "I wouldn't just forget someone who supposedly meant so much to me. I mean, I didn't forget Natalie, right? So then why you?" He leaned back and finally looked at her.

"Because it's me they want you to forget," Norah said, wishing she knew what he'd uncovered.

Elijah leaned his head back and closed his eyes, sighing. "It seems too messed up."

Norah let herself shed a few tears once he closed his eyes; it was so hard seeing him all hardened and closed off again. That was almost more heartbreaking to her that his memory of her being erased. "Everything about this is messed up," Norah said, "I...I wish you hadn't left. I wish I could have convinced you to stay or for us to just leave this city behind," she said. He was far more important to her than getting answers

Elijah wasn't sure what to say to that. He hardly knew her, but for some reason he felt like she was being honest with him. "We should go," he said and sat up straight again.

Norah hastily wiped her tears away and nodded, "Right, of course," she agreed, not saying any more. Maybe, just maybe, she had unlocked something in his mind.

Elijah was silent as they drove back toward the safe house. Maia came up and rested her head on the center console between them.

Norah glanced down at the Daemon and smiled gently, wondering if they'd done the same thing to her. It all seemed so horrible and she couldn't even imagine what Elijah went through to get to this point. Had they hurt him? she shuddered at the thought

Maia nudged Norah's arm with her nose. Elijah glanced down at her, and smiled slightly. "She seems to like you, regardless," he said.

(aweeeeeee)

Norah felt the weight on her chest lighten somewhat and she put her hand on Maia's head, grateful for that small comfort, "She'll always be a big softy," she said

"Most people find her scary," he said, chuckling a bit. He pulled into the driveway for the house, the other car already there.
