Rae didn't say anything for a second, mostly because her mother had always told her not to say anything if you couldn't say anything nice. But she wanted to ask them why. Why, after the time she spent protecting them and saving their asses back on the mainland, they'd been so quick to give up on her? She wasn't some super hero. She was just a person, who wanted to survive this as much as they did. "Maybe I'll seek them out while I'm recovering. Just to talk to them…" she trailed off.
When Sarah defended her jokes, Rae just laughed. "I know, I was just fucking with you," she grinned, nudging her best friend with her shoulder and smoothed a hand through her her hair. "My personal favorite was the aim for the stars one, by the way," she added, one half of her mouth quirking up into a grin. "Whoa, I'm never gonna be on my death bed? So I'm a freakin' superhero now? Invulnerability or something? Infinitely more badass than other power I could have envisioned having." She grinned. "Clearly we should harvest my blood, since I'm so invulnerable, to share my power with the world!"
Scoffing, Rae glared at her best friend. "Hey. I am so not a daffodil. Could a daffodil kick as much ass as I do? I don't think so," she said, glaring playfully at Sarah. She knew that she didn't mean it. And she also knew that Sarah knew that she wasn't a daffodil. She was anything but. "And you're right. He doesn't need a reason to want to fight you. Apparently that's like an adrenaline rush to you two…" she snickered.
"I don't have to say anything to anyone," Rae insisted. "I'm not ready." She wasn't even ready to admit anything to herself, let alone to Sarah, and god forbid to Eli. "Not yet."
