    Summary

    But now, they’re both standing in the single room, staring down at the single bed, and Kaz eyes the open window with a look of longing, wondering if the fall would be bad enough to break his other leg.

    Or: Kaz, Inej, and the "there's only one bed" trope

    Summary

    And it’s like Inej can read his mind, because she keeps her movements slow, watching the way his frame shudders. “What happened to you, Kaz?” she whispers softly.

    It’s the same question she asked back then, when Van Eck was still chasing them around the city and he was still trying to sort through all the messy goings-on inside his head. It’s like she knows, like she’s giving him a second chance to amend his mistake, to strip the outer layer of Kaz Brekker away. He still doesn’t feel any better equipped to answer, but he’s thought long and hard about the question over the past weeks. He owes it to her to at least try.

    Summary

    "The only thing on his mind was one thought, a repeating and constant giddy stream of words, drudging up some old and familiar sense of excitement:

    Jordie, we’re going home."
     

    Or, the survival and reunion of the Rietveld brothers.
