Spoilers (I guess) for 4.22, takes place during the final moments (specifically, the one in my icon). (And no new challenges for awhile so I just...wrote this.)|
The shadows fall across Irina's face in a familiar way, but this isn’t like any moment that’s ever passed between them. It’s just as serious, just as important, but not as heavy; they can both feel that there’s nothing weighing them down anymore.
The betrayals, the lies—they’ve all fallen away, been replaced with something steady and sure. It’s partly trust, partly love, mostly acceptance and wholly welcome.
For the first time in a long time, what’s between them isn’t about the past. It’s about the present, and possibly—they each allow themselves just a moment to hope—the future.
