    Summary

    "'Remind me again what we’re doing here.'
    Vex peered at Percy over her menu. 'Spying on my brother. Obviously.'
    Percy sighed. 'Remind me again why we’re doing that.'"

    Vax has a date and Vex is suspicious. Vex also has a date, although it takes her rather longer to figure that out.

    Summary

    Vex wakes with a gasp, coughs violently. Trinket lifts his head from the floor, blinks sleepily and groans at her in confusion. She sits up in bed, her hair falling in a curtain around her face as she rests her forehead against her knees. Her heart is racing, but already the details of the dream are starting to slip away, and grasping for them is like trying to catch hold of running water.

    It's-- it's fine. It was just a dream. Everyone dreams.

    Or, the one where Vax is not very persuasive, and Vex deals with the consequences. Or, rather, tries quite desperately to not deal with them.

    Summary

    "I go where my feet take me," she offers with a shrug, somewhere between a reason and an excuse. "And apparently my feet wanted me to be cold." They both glance down to her toes, bright red against the snow since she still hasn't replaced her shoes. She's worn thick calluses into them, her heels now as rough as any boot, but the cold in her feet is an afterthought to Percy's smile and the glint in his eyes.

    "Well, dear" he says, and offers her his elbow, "let us go warm them then, yes?" By the gods, she didn't realize it, but she's missed him.

    "Do lets," she agrees, and takes his arm in hers.

    Or, the one where Vex wanders, Percy waits, the both of them want, and the both of them make mistakes. The romance of two broken people, told over the span of a lifetime, and in four seasons.
