Elijah spoke with the Bear for a few minutes, explaining the rest of the tentative plan. When the other walked away, he turned back to Norah and smiled.

Jaime swallowed hard as he looked away again, clenching and unclenching his hands. It was a lot to process. Someone had tried to kill Sadie but Astrid had sacrificed herself to save her. “She really did that? damn, I...I feel like an ass for not believing in her,” Jaime said

“I’m glad we came back,” Norah said, “this feels...right,” Norah said.

“She really cares,” Sadie said, emotion bubbling up in her. “She always has. She would have taken them on alone if I’d have let her, and died doing it.”

“I’m sorry Sadie, I should have trusted her from the beginning. She’s been nothing but loyal to us,” Jaime said.

“I don’t think it’s me that needs an apology,” she told him softly, watching his face. “Though I don’t think she holds it against you either.”

“It really does,” he agreed, kissing her softly again. “We need to go tell Jaime and Sadie the news,” he said when he pulled away.

“Right, of course,” Norah said, nodding in agreement. If the bears and the wolves could manage to work together, there was no telling what they could accomplish. “Let’s go tell them then,” she said, eager to share the good news.

Jaime nodded as he stared at astrid, who was asleep but still breathing evenly. When she was up and alert he would have to suck up his pride and apologize for being such a dimwit.

Sadie watched Astrid too, still deeply concerned for her friend. “I really am sorry about going out,” she said in a quieter voice. “I didn’t think anything would happen. We were only gonna walk a block.”

He nodded and turned from her to find Rob and let him know they were leaving. Once he did, he took Norah’s hand once more to walk out.

Norah walked out with Elijah feeling elated by the support they’d received, “I feel like we can trust Rob more,” she noted as they approached the car.

Jaime shook his head, “no, don’t go blaming yourself. What happened happened. What’s important is you’re both alive,” he said. “When I got home and saw you missing I was...I was so scared he’d taken you,” Jaime said, voice cracking.

She ran her hand through her hair, ashamed and guilty. “I never meant to scare you. I thought we’d be home long before you, no harm done.”

“I think so too.” Elijah opened his door and slid in, clearly in a good mood. He felt better than he had in days, and he supposed it was because some of the anxiety and uncertainty was lifted. He waited until they all were in and then started the car to go to the other apartment.

Norah glanced over at Elijah as he drove, glad to see how relaxed he seemed. Norah knew they still faced an uphill battle and she didn’t want to get too caught up in their success because something terrible would likely happen, but it was hard not to feel good about everything when Elijah was smiling so brightly

“I’m just glad you’re okay,” Jaime said.

She bit her lip, almost wishing he would just yell at her. She didn’t deserve all his kindness. “Yeah,” she simply agreed, eyes sliding back to Astrid, watching her chest move up and down as she breathed.

(Awe Norah 🥺)

Elijah glanced over at her as he drove, his eyes meeting hers briefly. “What?” He asked.
