“Y’know,” Coral tells her. “You don’t always have to be in control.”
It’s not what she expected Coral to say. So, Cactus tries to play it off with humor. “What you call control, I call barely keeping it together.”
Coral doesn’t laugh. Doesn’t even crack a smile. She whispers, “Then don’t. I’m here. I can hold you up.”

Aubergine has no clue what Peanut knows. If she’ll say something to save her own hide. If she’ll turn on them. She has no idea what’s behind that facade. Behind that silent, cold exterior, she could be plotting a bigger calamity than Starch.
No way is Lieutenant Aubergine letting that happen.
“Don’t lie to them,” She says sharply. “That will only make things worse.”
Peanut doesn’t turn. Just glances over her shoulder. “Ah never lie. Ta’ think that I would is a travesty. What does that say about you?”

“What’s up with the star?”
Cactus pointed to the black star on her frame. “That.”
Coral made a face, like, ‘What a stupid question.’ But Cactus didn’t think so. Not at all.
“It doesn’t mean a damn thing,” She said. “So could you please get outta my face? Thanks.”
That had to be where it all started.
