    Summary

    Leave.
    Hasn't he heard that word before?
    But never, Izaya reflects as the blade glides over his wrist like a twisted sonnet, in that tired tone of voice. So maybe Shizuo really meant it this time. Maybe he really will leave.
    After all, why not?

    Summary

    Giddean Danu shook his head, doubt plainly written across his dark face. “If we are to openly oppose the Chancellor, we need the support of the Jedi. We need their moral authority. Otherwise, what do we have?”

    “The moral authority of the Jedi, such as it is,” Bana Breemu said, “has been spent lavishly upon war; I fear they have none left for politics.”

    “One Jedi, then,” Padmé offered to the others. At least let me speak the truth to my love. At least. Please, she pleaded with them silently. “There is one Jedi—one whom I truly know all of us can trust absolutely …”

    Her voice trailed off into appalled silence when she realized that she wasn’t talking about Anakin.

    Summary

    It kind of hurts how much she can recall from that morning. Every twitch and every hitch of breath and every accusation.

    The way he had grinned, wickedly, at Zoe across the table when their mother had insisted he wasn’t high. She remembers he used to smile at her that way all the time, without needing weed to keep him smiling.

    Zoe used to love the kitchen table.
