It had been another bad day. The worst part was, there had been nothing that had made it a bad day. It wasn't like there was rhyme or reason for it, but for some reason as the sun went down and the lights came on over the water, Kathy been struck anew by grief, her breath thick in her throat, her eyes burning with tears. Maybe the lights had reminded her of LA. Or maybe they'd reminded her of happier, easier times, when everything was good. More than good. Perfect. She'd known what she was doing and why--everything had made sense. She'd had a plan and every step she'd taken had moved her closer to her goals.

Now she had no plan, no goals other than 'make it through the day.' Some days, she felt good, like she was making progress, uncovering bits and pieces of herself that she'd thought she'd lost, trying to fit them into the person she was now like shards of a broken mirror. Other days, like today, she felt like she was drowning and every breath was a struggle around the thick weight of grief and regret and pain that sat on her chest like a creature out of myth. Most days were somewhere in-between, an odd muted gray as she fumbled her way, uncertain whether she was moving forward or backwards or even off to the side.

Like she did so many nights, she made her way to Baltimore. This time, she found herself on a rooftop somewhere, staring down at the city. She didn't think she'd even stood on this particular building as Banzai before, but still the vantage point and the angles were so familiar that the ache she felt sharpened to the point of true pain. But the tears stayed where they were, locked away, and instead she just sat, staring at the city, at the life, she'd once called hers and waited for it to pass.

It would pass, right?

Dante'd had a good day. Hung out, had a beer, played some guitar. The old itch of do-cause-you're-gonna-die had been absent lately, and so Baltimore had turned into an afterthought.

Turned out waiting for the best time to strike caused a different kind of itch, though. And so, after at least a month, he was back in town... roaming the streets, checking the doors of some of his old haunts.

That bar?

Nah.

Not that bar.

Dante moved away from the incoming debris instinctively; faster than he would have even a few months ago, though even then his reflexes had been lightening-fast.

He frowned, looking towards the ceiling. "Is anybody up there?"

Well. Fuck.

"Not really," Dante said.

He glanced over one shoulder, then over the other. Nothing but bored city people; he'd be fine.

He leaped up, feet touching briefly on the fire escape-- and then he was on the roof.

"Shitting hell," Dante muttered.

He walked across the roof, feet kicking against the dirt. He squatted low when he got close, tilting his head. "Kat?"

Dante had a whole host of lingering problems with Kathy. Most of them, he wasn't even really aware of.

Her being something other than bippy or chirpy or trying too hard wasn't one of them.

"Moon's out," he mused, sinking down next to her on the ground. He looked up meditatively. "Think it's full yet?"

"Kinda cool," Dante said. He settled back next to her, not terribly fussed about his arm brushing against hers. "You don't get a view like that back in Limbo City. Maybe the demons've got something to do with that, too."

If she wasn't going to talk, he would.

It was entirely possible he knew that wasn't what she was asking.

"It's fine," Dante said. He turned his head, looked at her. "I can always go out and pick us up something if we get thirsty."

You know. If she wanted him to leave.

Dante looked back up at the sky.

"You had the right idea in coming up here."

Dante slanted his head to study her.

"So what brings a girl like you to a place like this?" he asked.

"Didn't get all that dressed up for a rooftop either," Dante said. He threw a slight, overly casual nod her way. "I could pick us up some drinks if you'd rather party up here."

For a measure of 'party' that involved sitting on a rooftop feeling sad.

"That bad, huh?" Dante said.

Well. So much for trying to lighten the mood.

Instead he was watching her expectantly now.
