Luke is gone.

When she awoke it took a few moments for her to realise where she was. At home, in her room, in her bed. Well, not in it, more like on it. Pushing herself up, her hand going to her head, rubbing her fingers across just above her eyebrows, she sighed, then opened her eyes again. It was then she saw the mess around her. Blankets and sheet strewn on the floor around her, and the pillowcase of the pillow she usually hugged as she fell asleep? Torn, the pillow across the room, as if someone had propped it up against the wall on her desk.

Her fingers curled into a fist and she shoved the exposed knuckles into her mouth, teeth closing on them as she felt the tears prickle behind her eyes.

No! Stop it! She inhaled deeply, pulled her fist from her mouth and looked at the indents in her skin. She started scrubbing at them, the pain a relief as it distracted her for a moment from the dreams that were still fading from her mind. She slid her legs from the bed and padded across the room to stand in front of the mirror. It was still the same face that looked back at her and the same body. This last confirmation helped her breath a sigh of relief.

But the dreams had been so vivid. It had been worse since Luke had left, and she'd been hiding it, not wanting him to worry. He knew how close she was, and had been for a while, but this was more important. He needed to find Ruby, and it had been a big enough step for him to take to go to New York. From what he'd been saying each night she knew if she told him he would welcome the excuse to return, and she didn't want that to be the reason for him to not find what he was looking for.

She'd hung on this long. A little longer ... that's all ....

Just.

A.

Little.

Longer.
