    Summary

    Beth struggles with whether or not to tell Rio that she, Annie, and Ruby have stolen back Boomer's body. Rio keeps Beth in the loop about new business developments, and Beth fights for a bigger role in their partnership. Rio opens up to Beth, literally and figuratively, when he invites her to stay over for the first time.

    ---

    Beth lets out a breath, relaxing. “You’re not mad?”

    He shrugs. “Nah, I’m mad,” he says, coming closer still. “But you protecting you."

    “And that’s… okay with you?” she asks uncertainly. “Even in this partnership?”

    Rio’s now close enough to take his pinky and push her bangs to the side. “Partner’s gotta trust each other,” he says. “Have each other’s backs. Be loyal.”

    They just stare at each other for a moment, Beth’s eyes darting, trying to read him, trying to understand.

    “But that don’t come instantly. It’s gotta be earned.”

    “I’ll earn it,” Beth promises.

    “Yeah,” he says, nodding slightly. “Me too.”
