Plans, it seems, have been made, and Kim will leave again. As she walks over to Paul to say her goodbyes, Jen carefully moves away from Arthur and stands, brushing sand off her skirts.

It's all happening so quickly, too quickly, she thinks. You will not get there in time, Kim had said to Matt, speaking as a Seer, and she knows she is right, if not why.

Why is rarely something she is allowed to see, after all.

So little time left, for any of them-- but there's time enough for this. There has to be; she couldn't stand it otherwise.

Kim walks over to Jennifer, her roommate and oldest friend, and tries for a smile.

"It looks like I'm going to go haring off again, doesn't it?"

"Well, you know me."

But does she? Do they truly know each other, any more, after so much has happened? They do, she thinks, they must. Surely this hasn't changed, not what really matters. Surely not.

Kim refuses to accept that it could be any other way.

"Not that it's much like school, I guess, but as long as you keep moving you don't fall, right?"

Her fingers tighten on Jennifer's.

"I won't if you won't."

"I'll try," she says, even while a part of her notes bitterly that she's been the one who brings trouble and pain to others rather than the one who becomes caught up in it.

There's a beat, and then Kim adds,

"I'm sorry. About Darien. About everything."

The soft gasp she lets out is somewhere halfway between a laugh and a sob, and Kim nods wordlessly as she squeezes Jen's hand in return.

There's so much she wants to say, if she could only think of the right words.

"And you," she says, simply. "And you, Jen."

It seems almost as though Kim wants to say something else, but in that moment the blood-red fire of the Warstone flares alight on her finger, pulsing with the beat of a heart...or of a warning.

Kim takes a single breath and lets Jennifer's hand drop as she turns away, drawing into herself and becoming more remote as she does.
