04 – What Came Before

November 2nd As the shift completed, Stef blinked, taking in the sight of Ryan’s office. She’d been in the office fewer than a dozen times, but somehow, it felt safe. It felt like the first little bit of “safe” she’d had since before seeing the bird and volcano, and since becoming their trussed-up prisoner. She took a breath, and some… Read more →

02 – Legacy

Ryan stared at the space where Stef had been, curled one hand into a fist, then looked down at the floor, considering all his options, all possible permutations of the next five minutes.

19 – Before and After

September 28th Ryan noted that the door to his office was unlocked – Jane was already there, and quite willing to make herself at home. He stopped, refreshed his uniform, and walked in, his face as professional and content as he could make it without filtering out all of his emotion. ‘Jane,’ he said, noticing the stack of files on… Read more →
