    Summary

    It’s always been her, within her. The hunger, the longing─ was always for her. Blue was always meant to find her and to send the first letter.

    It’s not done yet.

    For once uncertain of the future, Blue takes another step and slips away through time. She travels towards the one thing that no change of times could ever erase, the constant pull that can draw her in even millennia apart.

    Summary

    The rest of the words I hold in my heart I wish to whisper into your ears with my own voice, mark into your skin with my fingers, let you read in the staccato of my breath.

    I’m tired of waiting. So be prepared, my kingfisher; I’ve found a time and place to cross our paths.

    Summary

    In order to keep Red, she could not have her now. It’s like telling her not to eat while holding honeycomb to her lips.

    Blue doesn't die. Time is fluid, and there are two shadows haunting the braid.
