    Summary

    Come closer, Child, kindred friend of the Bygone Son – I wish to witness your rebirth.

    Rey doesn’t recall moving her legs, she doesn’t have to – not when the branches are crooked fingers, enveloping her slender frame, encouraging her towards the roots of the archaic shadows. There is a lifting, somber voice from within the forest that sings again, neither male nor female but deiform and ancient, behaving like the pendulum of time. Allow me to beseech your lonely mind, Rey of Light.

    She wants to be afraid, she wants to approach it, but a set of hands grapple her shoulders and she slams back into her own reality, trembling, gasping for breath. Her heart is violently throwing itself against her chest. She clutches Ben’s lightsaber to her breastbone even as she struggles to reject it.

    Ben's grip is gentle, careful. “Rey. Don’t be afraid, I’m here.”

    Summary

    “It’s perfectly alright,” he says placidly. “I will always have time for you.”

    “You shouldn’t say things like that.”

    “And why not?”

    Ren sets himself down at the edge of his bed, raking his fingers through his tousled hair. For a moment the connection is severed, static, a rising hum in the back of his head until she reaches out to him again. Then they plateau together, energy to energy, synched in harmony, if for the first time in weeks since they last saw each other. He’ll take all of what he can get.

    “Because you’re there, and I’m here.” (Now who’s fault is that?)

    Summary

    It occurs to him that she looks terrible. The edges of her features are cleaved through by the firelight. Her eyes are sunken, terrified; her hair melds with the wet pallet of her shirt to become continuous and dark.

    “Rey,” he says gently. The quiet is strange, amplifying and nursing off his voice, allowing it to ricochet across the barrier. “What happened?” An image is conjured in the front of his mind. Luke Skywalker. The emerald glaze of the lightsaber, colliding on arctic blue, is a harbinger of memories that leaves a sweltering pit in Ren's stomach. “Did he hurt you?”

    She looks at him as if surprised.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry,” Rey says suddenly, as if she has a choice in when or where their new mental link will act up. She somehow doubts that Ben knows, either, judging by his sincere attempt to cover himself with his hand.
