She put the necklace down when I entered her room. She felt embarrassed, caught red-handed even. Of course her hair is tied into a tight bun once again, and the uniform doesn't do her credit at all, like the moss-green dress did.

Her eyes, however, are as bright and shiny as they were when I came to get her. It was all I could do not to take her in my arms right then.

But now she's in my arms, can accept the comfort I offer. She's trembling all over, and the realisation that I can't always protect her is maddening.
