    Summary

    She should have changed out the tires on the wagon. She should have borrowed a truck from Hopper. She should have known better than to trust that the Indianapolis weather report of light flurries with accumulation of less than one inch in most areas would be at all accurate in Hawkins, where gravity didn't even always work in the same direction.

    It was dangerous, and she should have turned back, probably, a while ago.

    But she hadn't, because Robin was right, it was pretty. It was downright idyllic almost, assault weapons aside, pulling up to Robin's house with the snow clean and smooth over her yard, Christmas lights twinkling. Robin's rosy cheeks and nose, snowflakes in her eyelashes as she got into the car.

    It was pretty. And Nancy was stupid.

    Summary

    "Take it," she says, already moving to the ladder and planting her foot two steps up. Ava's hand darts out and grabs her sleeve, and she stops instantly, suddenly rooted to the spot.

    "It's your bunk, Beatrice. Come on, I'm not going to kick you out of your bed."

    "Too late," she finds herself saying, and reaches for a joke, to ease some of the tension she feels, "although using the halo as part of an elaborate bunk bed land grab was a bit extreme, wouldn't you say?"

    It's a poor attempt but Ava laughs, really laughs, for the first time since the Vatican and Adriel. Beatrice feels a warm flush go through her at the sound.

    Summary

    Hawkins, Indiana has given Robin Buckley many things:

    A healthy fear of saws, a rudimentary grasp of Russian, a new respect for D&D.
    Also, Steve Harrington and Nancy Wheeler.

    Sometimes, she thinks the saws would be easier.
