    Summary

    For Jeeno, who let me squeeze her through the whole movie.

    ***

    Tatooine is cold at night.  Jakku was a desert, but the sands of her homeworld somehow clutched the day’s heat until the next sunrise. She has nothing she can burn to make a fire, so Rey abandons her camp in the central courtyard of the Lars farm halfway through the first night and curls into the atmospherically-controlled cockpit of the X-wing.  It isn’t really built to accommodate a sleeper. The seat only reclines 80 degrees. The controls jab her in the kidneys as she gets a few hours’ restless sleep, but it’s better than freezing to death under the watchful gaze of the Skywalker ghosts.  

    After three days, she draws a line on the wall with a charred bone.

    It’s never taken Ben very long to find her.  He’ll be along soon enough.

    Summary

    "I don't like your manners," she sniffed.

    "And I'm not crazy about yours," he retorted.

    (So they were apparently Bogie and Bacall now, and maybe she could blame the alcohol in the morning, like all the good girls did.)

    Summary

    He looks as she would have imagined him the day after she last saw him.

    He looks as she would have imagined him every day since.

    He looks alive.

    Gone are the battered abrasions on his face and the tatters in his clothes; he wears the same loose tunic that he’d donned that day. The day he’d joined her. The day he’d put away Kylo Ren.

    The day he’d found Ben Solo.

    In which no one is ever really gone.
