Who: Roxanna Fielding & Hecate
What: Oh god, not another one
When: Not too long after this
Where: Hecate's shop
Roxanna was running. Running, running, running, to put as much distance between herself and her...father as she could. Being near him had made her feel so off-balance, like nothing she knew made sense anymore, like she couldn't trust anything anyone told her anymore.
The farther away she got from the cafe, the more her head started to clear. After clearing about half a dozen blocks without stopping, she finally slowed down, ducking into an alley between two buildings to catch her breath. Her brain was spinning like a top, and a glance up told her she was at least three miles away from school. She sighed. The perfect addition to her shit day.
Hypnos walked up then, finishing his afternoon walk with Hecate's dogs. The young woman in the alley made him pause, and he asked, "You lost, miss?"
Roxanna's laugh was humorless. "In every sense except geographically, ironically enough."
That made him raise an eyebrow. "O...K," he said. "Well, either way, you look really cold, and I work just down the block. There's coffee and it's out of the wind. If you want."
Roxanna eyed him warily. "I will punch you if you try something," she told him.
Hypnos laughed. "You sound like my sisters."
"Well, then they clearly know what's up."
