    Summary

    When Caleb gets very sick, the rest of the Nein take care of him. The fever draws some of Caleb's issues to the front, but if Beau can figure out how to use punching for medicinal purposes, she can figure out how to talk about feelings. Maybe. Caleb isn't used to being cared about, but sometimes if it's masked enough, he can navigate it anyway.

    Summary

    Nott is a goblin with no friends, and nowhere to go. Caleb is a human with no family, and no hope left. They don’t expect each other, but Caleb is empty, and Nott needs something to care for. So they work with the broken pieces.

    Together is better.

    Summary

    Lowering their weapons and coming down off Mount Taygetos together, they’re both beginning to realize, was the easiest part of it all. It’s what comes after—the slow, shaky process of learning simply how to be around one another—that feels like fighting a whole new war.

    Summary

    “Why?” Nott asks, her voice coming out rough and coarse, “Why help us?”

    The tiefling, Molly, locks eyes with Nott and says, “I know what it’s like to be lost, alone, and in the need of some help. Someone took a chance on me, so I’ll take a chance on you. Whether or not you accept our help is your choice.”
