    Summary

    “Hello.” he says, a little tentative. “It’s me, sweetheart.”

    The breathing audibly catches on the other end of the line, then there is a soft click and the line rings dead. He stares at the phone in his hand and then slowly places it back on the cradle.

    THIS:

    He broke her heart once.

    Now she smashed what was left of his.

    There is a poetic symmetry to be found, maybe.

    He doesn’t know who said that trying is better than not having tried at all. That’s bullshit.

    He’s so miserable he wants to scream all the time.

    -x-

    AND ALSO:

    She pretends she’s still the girl who can dazzle a whole room with a smile.

    She pretends she didn’t ruin everything because she was too selfish to think of anything but herself and her own personal glory.

    It seems she will never learn.

    -x-

    GUTTED. PERFECTLY GUTTED.

    Summary

    It’s difficult to differentiate souldreams from regular dreams.

    Until you meet your soulmate, souldreams are evanescent. They slip through your fingers, leaving behind only an impression, an imprint of sort. Much like regular dreams, there is no really remembering them.

    Summary

    It was his ritual. Coffee, flirting information out of a pretty waitress - like Claudia, who kept giggling as she told him everything about everyone in his sightline - and a cold-blooded kind of people-watching designed to give him a leg up.

    If all of this had a downside, it was that sometimes Napoleon was multitasking just enough to get blindsided.

    Summary

    Her boredom sets in before they are even done with breakfast; the others sit around the table silently as they eat and leaf through a newspaper, a dossier, a small book. Gaby’s bare feet are propped up on the table, much to Waverly’s annoyance, and she spins her table knife between her fingers idly as she watches them.

    “I want to learn to fight,” she says. None of them look up, but Illya acknowledges her statement with a nearly imperceptible nod of his head.
