    Summary

    “You can’t flirt your way out of being fussed over when you’re sick,” Maya says.

    “Can’t I?” Franziska swivels to bury a wheezy cough in her elbow. “The sparkle in your eyes says otherwise.”

    “I’m strong!” Maya’s fists ball instinctively. “Pretty girls are no match for the will of a Fey!”

    “It appears we’re at a stalemate, then.”

    Summary

    It’s just that, she’s Mr. Edgeworth’s little sister, and she’s all alone. No one should be all alone in general, let alone when they’re sick, let alone in a foreign country after being born and raised overseas. If it were the detective himself, he’d be in tears right about now, and she’s strong, but she’s just a kid. Barely old enough to take meds for that headache of hers. Mr. Edgeworth has done so much for Gumshoe, for the legal system in general, and his heart’s made of gold, Gumshoe knows it is. Gumshoe knows that if he were here right now, he wouldn’t be taking no for an answer—he’d be wrangling his sick sister somewhere more closely resembling a bed, he’d be taking her lashings like they’re nothing.

    Summary

    He knows this pain, of course he does. Being on the other side of it is something else, though, knowing the terror of it himself by no means makes him an expert. The fever has undoubtedly exacerbated the delusion of it, as well, a factor that may complicate things. It’s different, though—she wasn’t scared like this when it was happening, not in any way that showed on her face. Franziska was strong that muggy spring day as she was anywhere else, chin pointed high and mouth set firm as she poured hot blood all over his car upholstery.

    Miles forgot, sometimes, how much of Franziska was a mask.

    Summary

    One in the morning. Miles had called her at one in the morning, after a measly six hours of sleep, and all but begged her to prosecute an American case. He was kind enough to fly her in, but that kindness could only edge travel time down to fifteen long hours, every second of which she spent reading case files front to back until their shape lived like scripture in her head. Franziska arrived barely an hour before the trial began, fought her brother like her life depended on it, and then headed straight to the crime scene where a miserably sick Phoenix Wright was just waiting to turn the air around them into a viral hotspot.

    Between all of that, the freezing temple, and the all-nighter she pulled immediately after, well. Truly, it was a recipe for disaster. She only wishes every half-brained fool around her would stop hovering so damn much.
