    Summary

    She nods and slides out of the booth, her calm manner belying the sudden uptick of her heart. Rebels. It’s too little to go on and too dangerous to hope, but the ache of Saw’s abandonment is still a sharp wound in her chest. Beyond that, the tattered fragments of her mentor’s intermittent warnings still flutter at the surface of her mind.

    If they’re not here for her, she can’t give them a reason to be, and if they are here for her, she’s in more trouble than even Solo knows.

    (As she slips out of the cantina, she shoulders past a stern-looking man in a leather jacket heading in the direction she just came from, sharp eyes parsing out the crowd behind her.)

    Summary

    “Let me know if you change your mind,” she says as she brushes past him to the ‘fresher, taking her hair down to repin it. The mirror is higher on the wall and from the corner of his eye he watches her stand on her socked toes, reaching up to see better. He’s seen her hair down twice before – times that he, captain in Rebel Intelligence and seasoned soldier most definitely does not think about when his mind wanders.

    (Most definitely.)

    She frowns as she brushes her hair out with her fingers, the cropped edges catching in tangles that she tugs out with efficient focus. He’s staring by now, distracted by the way shorter pieces catch at her neckline and the way the lighter shades of her hair catch in the fluorescent light of the ‘fresher. In a moment, however, she’s swept her hair back up into her customary bun, tucking loose edges behind her ears.

    “What?” she asks and he startles, realizing he’s been caught as she looks back at him in the mirror. He shakes his head, playing it off.

    “I think you might have been right about that fried likchi,” he says.

    (He doesn’t drink in her delighted grin. He doesn’t.)

    Summary

    “I’m not used to people sticking around when things go bad,” she says, her face lifted up to his and an echo in his brain is trying to make him focus. It’s hard to listen in the light of her joy.

    “Welcome home,” he answers, leaning closer, and almost almost almost but it’s not the time or the place, no matter how easy it would be, because that echo in his brain is always there. Her smile is blinding and he grins, as much as anyone like him can remember how to grin, and for one split second he forgets where he is.

    (So, it seems, does she.)

    Summary

    Saw leaves her just the way he found her – alone, in the dark, waiting for someone to come back. This time, when she realizes nobody is coming, the realization bursts her lungs and she is trying to catch her breath, eyes screwed shut, and shuts out every thought of what comes next.

    (She knows she’ll never see it coming.)

    Finally, her breaths come steady, her eyes open, and she grips the blaster at her side.

    There is no time for tears.

    (There never is.)

    Summary

    Words have always been her ally – never his – and his fists curl at his sides, holding himself together. It builds and flows and changes as they grow, and the sand shifts under his feet, caution plaguing his every move.

    Sorry, he tells her, over and over, in as many ways as he can imagine, and tastes her apology in return. They stumble, unskilled and uncertain, and catch each other as they fall.

    (Somehow – slowly – their fights ease into something else.)

    Summary

    He leads and she checks him, though he’s less prone to rebel tendencies when he’s the king.

    “You’re a pain in the ass, Raven,” he says when she hands him the requisition list and she grins.

    “Happy to serve,” she jokes, and he walks backwards into a wall as he tries to make a smooth exit.

    She doesn’t quite manage not to laugh at him. For all her memories of the ground that she’d like to forget, there are others more bittersweet than bitter. She turns them over in her memory when nobody is looking, private thoughts that grow from seeds into more. She remembers the way he’d jumped when she’d yelled BOOM!; how he carried her when she had fallen to the ground, anguished and speechless; how he’d closed the shuttle door, and she’d breathed easy for the first time that day.

    She remembers.

    Summary

    “I can’t tell you that,” she says, her tone distant, but when she looks at him, there’s definitely a hint of a smile around her eyes. He frowns, confused. “What, you don’t trust me now?”

    She shrugs, looking back out at the road. “Tiger don’t change its stripes,” she says, and even though she’s actually smiling now, it’s a private smile, not for him. He can’t tell where the joke ends and the truth begins.

    (Given the circumstances, he can’t blame her.)

    Summary

    She skids around a corner, catching her breath, when she sees him about to board a shuttle.

    In the next moment, he sees her.

    Instinct propels her across the distance, and he’s already made it off the shuttle ramp by the time she collides with him, practically running him over as she buries him into a hug. He recovers quickly enough, his arms easily finding their place around her, and she burrows her head in his chest, still chasing her breath.

    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

    “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.”
