    Summary

    Now she seeks the darkness out willingly, found a hidden trail to La Reina and followed, drops charms from her bracelet at each finished mark. Until today, at least, where she’s so close to getting her guts ripped out like pulling at the ribbon on a prettily wrapped present, white underbelly being scratched into, pain singing, and for a moment she wishes that she still had the capability to get on her knees and beg God forgiveness, absolve, repent. That she would have been a more careful preacher’s baby girl and not lost her faith on deserted Mexican highways, tossed her momma’s cross out the window because it made her think of pills and cars driving too fast, the yellow in her daddy’s eyes before it was nothing but blackness, filling up her insides.

    “He told you to be smart. Should’ve listened.”

    And the last thing she sees past ripped up monster bodies, mangled limbs hanging by chunks, a pulled-out eyeball plopped on her chest, is coke-bottle lenses and wire frames, the youngest Gecko smiling at her like he’s just drawn an ace and a ten.

    Summary

    Early morning on a desert road smells like apocalypse; that’s what Kate is saying anyway.

    Dust on tongues and grit between teeth from the dunes. She imagines the end of the world might feel like this hijacked road trip.

    Summary

    Richie could sit on that dirty couch and kiss the preacher’s daughter until the sun came up; no need for heavy breaths and hands knotted into long brown hair, fingertips digging into his back- hours of sitting on the couch and just letting Kate press her lips against his own, the most basic and simple sign of affection, a thing that Richie craved above all else. A thing Richie didn’t realize he craved until that moment.

    Summary

    He never wanted to touch her before, if it makes any difference. Was the first to punch some sick son of a bitch in the face when they even looked at her the wrong way. But they’ve been moving along together for eight months, wearing the tragedy from that night on their sleeves, over their hearts. The hurt and loss is so sewn into them now, it’s just a gaping wound that only the other can fill.

    AU drabble series; Seth/Kate centric.
