"The bathroom is probably our best bet," she suggested. "It's where we keep all the cleaners and stuff."

"Alright, we'll start there," Jaime said as he steered her back to the couch, "Sit, I'll pull everything out," Jaime said then went off too the bathroom.

Sadie smiled to herself, feeling way too easily charmed at the simple gesture. She pulled a blanket across herself and curled up to wait for him.

Jaime pulled out everything stored under the sink and brought it all back to the Sadie, putting it all down on the coffee table. "Alright, right off the bat I see some options," Jaime said, "Bleach, for starters," he said.

She leaned forward and looked at the bleach closer. "That could work," she mused. "What else do we have?"

“Let’s see, we have ammonia, nail polish remover, a drain cleaner, all fairly toxic,” he said. He looked at Sadie, “none of this is going to kill him quickly unless it’s a large amount and we can’t really do that without him being suspicious,” Jaime said. Unless of course, they targeted the daemon instead.

"We're going to have to target the daemon, aren't we?" Sadie said in a defeated voice. She hated the thought of doing it, it felt like going too far.

Jaime did not want to do it either, but it was their best bet, “we may have to,” he said reluctantly. “Either way, they’re both going to die or be incapacitated,” Jaime said. It didn’t really matter who their target.

“Are we bad people?” Sadie asked him. “Planning to kill somebody?” She was starting to get cold feet now that things were getting real.

Jaime wanted to say no, because Malcolm was a terrible person, but murder was murder. “I don’t know, maybe,” he said. “I just...don’t know what else to do”

“Someone has to do it, right? I mean we can’t keep going like this, hiding out all the time.” She twiddled her thumbs and touched the bleach again. “We have to.”

Elijah paused and held her hands so he could kiss her quickly before he turned to go back to the bedroom and get dressed and brush his teeth.

Jaime wished there was an easy way to expose his father first, so that everyone knew of the things he’d done, but that just didn’t seem possible. “I know,” he finally said.

Norah’s breakfast wasn’t really sitting well and the thought of getting it a car was a little troubling but she knew Elijah needed to get out to process things. Norah eventually followed him to the bedroom and got dressed herself, into yoga pants and a loose sweater.

“You sure you’ll be okay in the car?” Elijah asked as he pulled a hoodie on.

Norah shrugged as she threw her hair up into a bun, “should be okay, we shall see I guess,” Norah said, trying to be optimistic about it
