    Summary

    “I’ve, um, been dreaming.” She closes her eyes because it’s easier to ignore Mami and Homura’s stares. “In, in my dream I’m still in bed, but I-I’m not alone, Sayaka’s next to me but she’s not breathing, she’s—”

    She’s pale and cold and pretty in the same way the stained glass windows of Kyoko’s father’s church are pretty and she’s lying so still she can’t be anything but dead. But in her dream Kyoko still curls around her, soul gem in hand, keeping her warm, keeping her safe—

    “—she’s dead, I didn’t even know her that well and she’s dead and in my dream I’m so, I’m scared that there’s nothing I can do.” She opens her eyes. “But there really is nothing I can do. She’s already gone, and we left her there.” She stares hard at her hands. “We weren’t really even friends.”

    Summary

    For lack of anything else to distract Malta from the horrible monotony of waiting to die, she turned her head to look at Kekki. The woman’s eyes were half-closed and empty, her fine features twisted with fatigue. Her lips were chapped and bleeding, so red from the acid it almost looked like she was wearing makeup. Malta would have laughed at that, if she could laugh. Kekki’s face looked terrible, and her fine gown was shredded and dirty.

    Malta decided she liked her better that way.
    -
    In which Malta and Kekki are dying, and bored, and alone.
