    Summary

    "Hi babe," he says. Esther mumbles a sleepy hello ; it's almost midnight and she was definitely asleep. "I need you to baby-proof the apartment." 

    "You what?" She sounds very awake now. "Baby what?" 

    He explains. She's quiet for a minute at the end, and he's worried she might be mad but he also wants to give her the space to express that. "Okay," she says, and her voice is much softer than he thought. "Yeah. Civic duty. I'll make some space for the crib and put all the weapons in the hall closet."

    Summary

    A tiny change in words, a minute beat, and Héloïse spills forward, a mess of hands. She slides her hand into Marianne’s hair- half-wet, she must have bathed while Héloïse was reading- and bares her teeth to her. Marianne doesn’t look scared. Why would she? ‘You dance at the Bolshoi,’ she had said, a tacit unspoken understanding. Héloïse had flinched, maybe, or something had given her away. Not a Bolshoi dancer. You dance at the Bolshoi.

    Summary

    It's not something I ever thought I'd be doing, crawling into bed with Baz in the wake of my nightmares.

    They're not just nightmares anymore though, are they? Because the Humdrum can summon me. It could summon me at any moment.

    That’s why this makes sense. Baz is a brilliant magician and just brilliant in general. If we ended up whisked away in the middle of the night Baz would get us out of there (or himself at least).

    And if not?

    Well, if The Humdrum killed Baz that would solve some of my problems. So, I suppose it has to be Baz.

    It has to be Baz because it doesn’t really matter if he dies.
