    Summary

    Cara Dune made the choice to stay on Nevarro, and every choice is a step forward.

    Where her choices are taking her? That's much harder to know. She's not even sure she knows where she wants to end up. All she knows is that choosing other people comes with rewards, but also great risks, and she's not sure that the risks are worth it.

    * Title taken from the Book of Five Rings, Myamoto Musashi (1645)

    Summary

    When people ask – when, not if, because people do ask quite often – they just brush it off with with a glare or a sharp reply that normally settles the issue. It doesn't stop people from staring and getting ideas, however, and the sort of ideas people have is very clear to both Din and Cara, who still won't say a word about it, for reasons that neither of them can really grasp when they think about it.
    Life is surprisingly easy, since they've been sharing it, and they're just content to take what they get, because it's still more than they could have dreamed of.
    They're side by side during the day, searching, fighting, and they're still side by side when the night falls and all they have is their sore limbs and each other's caring hands kneading into the knots in their neck and shoulders, melting the ache and the tension away. They're still side by side when they fall asleep in a bunk too small for two and yet somehow not small enough to justify how tightly they hold on to each other.

    [ Words are overrated. They don't need them to know what they have is special and unprecedented. ]

    Summary

    “There's still a lot to do, anyway,” she murmurs dismissively.
    “No help from your boyfriend?” asks Din.
    “He's not the sort of boyfriend who helps much around the house.” She glances back to give him an odd grin. “He kind of just... stands there, you know?”
    Din can't quite believe his own ears. How can someone kind and hard-working like Cara be with someone who won't even lift a finger for her? She should know she deserves better than this. She should want better than this, someone who works and sweats by her side and collapses in bed with her at the end of a long day, exhausted but content.
    “He sounds like a jerk,” Din mumbles to himself. He thought Cara was out of earshot, but she spins around as he says it.
    “Oh, for the love of-” she groans, then stops to let out an impatient sigh. The look on her face is both exasperated and strangely laced with mirth.
    “Come with me, you idiot.”

    Summary

    The moon asked the sun, “What do you know of love?”

    “It burns,” said the sun. “It brightens. It is something you make and then give away.”

    “Don’t listen to him,” said the clouds. “This big ball of gas doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

    “Yes, I do,” said the sun. “Who but me makes the roses grow?”

    “We do,” said the clouds. “Love nourishes, like the rain. We turn the hills green and fill the creeks so they will sing in their creekbeds.”

    “Why do you ask?” said the sun.

    “I think I might be in love,” said the moon. “I am trying to understand.”
