    Summary

    On Lah’mu, she had grown up next to an ocean that her mother had warned her against and her father had told her ghost stories about. Large sea monsters lurked beneath the surface, he insisted, weaving tall tales that kept her up at night. But she doubted that either of them had learned how to swim; it had been with Saw that she had learned at all.

    (It had been with Saw, as with so many other things.)

    She ties a line around her waist and passes it to Bodhi who fastens it to a cleat as she dives in, striking out in a straight line for Cassian. Her small body is battered by the waves, tossed to and fro, and fear quickly settles in her heart.

    (She keeps swimming.)

    Summary

    She may not have the words to say it, or trust herself enough to say them, but she does trust some things. She trusts the way he holds her, his embrace certain and warm, and she trusts the way she reaches for him, knowing he will be there. She trusts the way they tangle together, and the words that do spill from his mouth when nobody else can hear. She trusts the way they move in sync, and without speaking – she, who has never felt comfortable with speeches, feels something like comfort at last.

    Somehow, that makes it more difficult to keep – whatever this is – secret.

    Summary

    Next to her, Cassian freezes, catching at her hand. Gears are turning in his mind as he steps them closer to the wall.

    “I think we lost them,” she says, trying to catch her breath, and he shakes his head. “Not quite,” he says, and damned if she doesn’t hear an officer’s berating voice around the corner. His tongue darts out, wetting his lips, and her eyes lock with his. Her heart is still pounding from the race when he leans in, his body framing her in a secure embrace against the wall, heady and overwhelming.

    (She is still untangling the code in his gestures but this – oh this, she recognizes.)

    She meets his gaze in anticipation, his hands settling at her hips, and briefly wonders whether this is absolutely necessary for the mission.

    A moment later, with the sweet brush of his lips against her own, she decides she doesn’t care.

    Summary

    In the dark, she pulls a fresh shirt on from the drawer by the bed and crawls into the cot. Tugging the blanket around herself, she breathes deeply and smiles to herself.

    It smells like Cassian.

    Her last thought before she slides into sleep is to wonder whether he’s been sleeping in her bed while she was gone.

    (She likes the thought.)

    Summary

    “I’d never seen anything like that before,” she says. His mouth presses into a tight line, his arms following suit. “No,” he says. “But we were lucky.”

    She’d heard that before, usually from soldiers who didn’t know how to explain their escape or their skill. Usually, she didn’t believe it when she heard it.

    Still, it was hard to contest his point.

    “Do you dream about it?” she asks and he finally looks at her. He doesn’t wake from nightmares like she does but he does sleep in a taut line, thrown out into war, and she wonders. She wonders how alone they both are.

    “All day,” he says.

    (She wraps her arms around him, holds him tight until he falls asleep.)

    Summary

    “Jyn,” he murmurs, his voice a bare whisper as he tilts closer. In a heartbeat, she answers the only way she knows how. Her arms slide around him, closing the space between them, and tentatively, hesitantly, she brushes her lips against his, uncertainty falling away. They only had moments left.

     (Welcome home.)

    He sighs in a heavy exhale over her and her eyes slide shut as he presses into the kiss, a sweet memory forming for the rest of her life. His arms circle her, weakened but not dismayed, and she tilts her face up to lengthen the kiss. His lips part under hers as she steps closer, a kiss drawn out to a lifetime.

    Summary

    “Why am I here?” she asks him the next morning, the storm having passed them by. She still feels faintly green and carefully sips at the tea he’d made for them all. They’re sitting on the forward bench, watching a herd of sea cows cross the bow.

    “You’re here because the pilot is a woman,” Cassian reminds her, going over the mission brief details once more, “and it is Alliance policy for a woman to be present when a woman defects. Bodhi is here because he knows the pilot. I’m here to handle the first contact and debrief her.”

    She nods wearily, sipping at her tea. “Okay,” she says, stretching her legs out so her boots tap at a coiled line. “Those are good reasons.”

    Cassian pulls at his lip with his teeth, looking over at her. “If it helps,” he says, “Draven says to give it one more week.”

    One week. She can manage anything for a week.

    Summary

    He steps closer to Jyn, brushing a loose strand of hair from her face.

    (As always, there was nowhere else to go.)

    “Hi,” he says softly, and the voices outside key in the code. Her eyes flick up to meet his and a smile plays at her lips. “Hi,” she echoes.

    When he kisses her this time, he kisses her like it’s the last chance he’ll ever get. His hands wrap around her waist and she slides herself against him, her hands steady and warm on his chest. Her fingers curl in anticipation as he kisses her openly, as intently and with as much emotion as he can convey.

    (For a brief instant, he thinks she is trying to tell him something too.)

    Summary

    “I’m fine,” he murmurs as she curls up next to him in the ship’s bunk. They are well on their way home and he’s patched up as best he can be, but the sight of him going down under three blaster shots burns brightly in her memory. She’d been shot once, getting to him, and they are both littered with bruises and small injuries.

    (But they are both alive.)

    “I know,” she says, curling her arm around his chest, and it’s mostly true.

    Summary

    The shuttle lands in a half-controlled crash on the edge of one of the islands, the sand offering a harder landing than it suggested from above. The impact knocks Jyn into the bulkhead with a hard crash and her head spins as she tries to right herself.

    “Everyone okay?” she croaks, blinking. Beside her on the deck, she checks Cassian’s breathing, his form very still but for his staggered breaths.

    (They are running out of second chances.)

    Summary

    She always seems to be just ahead of him, just out of reach (until she’s there in front of him, burning and alive and home). It makes his head spin, and just – just – just as he’s pulling her closer, his heartbeat picking up – she slips away again.

    Summary

    “Will you teach me?” she asks one night, half-asleep as his fingers play lazy patterns on her back. His hand stills against her and he shifts, looking down at her.

    “Teach you what, mi amor?”

    “That,” she answers sleepily. She has figured out by now that it is an endearment of some kind, one that he only uses when they are alone. “Your language.”

    Summary

    There are a hundred rebel soldiers sleeping in the dark room and she curses under her breath as she picks her way down the aisle of bunk beds ensconced against the walls. Dim lights by the door cast strange shadows over the sleeping forms and she wills her eyes to work in the dark. The soldiers are unfamiliar in sleep, guards temporarily down, but as her eyes adjust she picks out identifying markers. Shoes sitting by the beds, jackets hung on the wall. Not everyone is sleeping alone, which makes her feel less conspicuous. She moves quietly, more from fatigue than courtesy, until she spies a familiar profile on a bottom bunk.

    Summary

    He’s a professional. He’s been doing this all his life. He doesn’t need to be around her. And almost to prove to himself that he doesn’t need her, doesn’t miss her, just as much as she clearly doesn’t miss him, he volunteers to meet a potential source on Rishki, an Imperial-occupied swamp planet. He’s fine.

    All things considered, he should have seen this coming.

    Summary

    He’s still breathing heavily from the battle, his uniform no longer neatly pressed, and she knows she must look much the same. A sudden, overwhelming desire hits her as she takes him in, considering their options. Their trouble is they don’t look innocent by any means, and all exits are likely blocked by now, making it hard to talk or fight their way out of this.

    From the corner of her eye, she spies a dark conference room.

    “I have an idea,” she says, mind whirling as she steps towards the room. “We need a reason to be here like this.” He follows close behind her and she can practically feel the tension washing over him. In contrast, the plan forming in her mind has provided her with a calm clarity. He closes the door behind them before she props it ajar.

    They need to be caught.

    Summary

    She stumbles onto the ship after him, cradling her arm, and as K2 and Bodhi initiate take-off he turns towards her, heart pounding with fear and adrenaline as her breath comes in short puffs.

    “Are you hurt?” he asks blindly, reaching for her only to snatch his fingers back as she lurches away. He forgets she’s like a feral animal when she’s injured, used to being the only person having her back. “Let me see,” he says, trying to force authority and calm into his voice, both to reassure her and take control of the situation.

    Inside, he’s anything but.

    Summary

    The first kiss comes quick, a burst of lifetimes in a single moment, an act of defiance against an unjust end. It comes unexpectedly, not at the end on Scarif, but in the midst of a mission on Mon Cal that they barely escape from with their lives.

    (Later, she will remember this. She will remember the rough touch of his beard, the sweet taste he leaves on her lips, and how her heart keeps pounding long after they’ve escaped.)

    Summary

    The weeks after Scarif are tense, busy, and too fraught with emergency for much self-evaluation. She, Bodhi and Cassian had gotten piss drunk after the Death Star celebration where they'd been honored with Skywalker and Solo, and Chirrut and Baze had escorted them back to their bunks before leaving. Yavin IV was caught between spaces - between celebration and escape – and it's not until they land on Hoth, still worse for the wear, that anything close to normalcy takes hold.

    With normalcy came the old instincts to run, hide, protect herself with a new name and new allies.

    Somehow, she finds herself lingering outside Cassian's quarters instead.

    Summary

    He trudges through the snow, step after step, one simple thought driving his march.

     

    Mercy is waiting.

     

    When he falls at her feet, a long moment of shock fills the room before Mercy tentatively rests her hands on his head.

    They can rest now.
