My name is Mary Katherine, but most people call me M.K. Until a few weeks ago I was a normal girl, ready to set off into the world on her own. Now I'm the queen of a kingdom of plant people in a remote forest in Connecticut.

Also, I'm only two inches tall now.

Fun.

M.K looked up from where she was petting her pet morning glory, smiling brightly at Aurie. “Yeah, come on in,” she said, standing up and brushing the pollen off her skirt. “What’s up?”

"I’m content in my corner of the city," Aurie shakes her head. "While I am passable with the politics, I never wanted to rule." She wraps an arm around MK’s shoulders. "I’m proud of you, though.”

M.K didn’t say anything, just curled into Aurie’s side and held onto her hand. At least one of them was.

Aurie tucks her chin on top of MK’s head and closes her eyes. “What’s been eating at you, sweetheart? There’s something you haven’t been saying this entire time.”

"I’m just… I feel wrong," M.K said quietly. "Like I’m only half-awake. I can’t leave my bed sometimes, and when I do, I don’t leave the castle. Nod and Tess have their own lives to live, and they’re around when they can be, but the rest of the time is just…" M.K screwed her eyes closed, curling up more. "I’m lonely," she whispered, like she was ashamed.

M.K looked up from where she was petting her pet morning glory, smiling brightly at Aurie. “Yeah, come on in,” she said, standing up and brushing the pollen off her skirt. “What’s up?”

Aurie strokes MK’s hair. “Thank you, I do appreciate it.” She tugs MK’s hair gently to get MK to look at her. “But you also discuss sensitive material a lot,” she teases, “and I don’t have the clearance for that.”

M.K rolled her eyes, smiling. “Please, out of the two of us, you deserve to know more,” she said. “You actually live in Moonhaven! I just… watch.”

M.K looked up from where she was petting her pet morning glory, smiling brightly at Aurie. “Yeah, come on in,” she said, standing up and brushing the pollen off her skirt. “What’s up?”

"I have," Aurie says, thinking back to that conversation. "He told me it wasn’t the same, that he knows when to stop. And perhaps he’s right, I do work too hard, but…I cannot abide the alternative. My work habits are what they are because I can’t not be working while I’m alone, and I’m alone a lot."

Looking up at Aurie, M.K frowned. They were in very similar positions, though Nod had never pulled the kind of things Ronin was. “My door’s always open,” M.K said shyly, looking down at her lap as she pulled on her hair. “I mean, if you just want to be around someone.”

Aurie strokes MK’s hair. “Thank you, I do appreciate it.” She tugs MK’s hair gently to get MK to look at her. “But you also discuss sensitive material a lot,” she teases, “and I don’t have the clearance for that.”

M.K looked up from where she was petting her pet morning glory, smiling brightly at Aurie. “Yeah, come on in,” she said, standing up and brushing the pollen off her skirt. “What’s up?”

"I’m just not," Aurie bites her lip. "He wants to take care of me, and while I’m not against being taken care of in theory, he has all these beliefs that I should change—my eating patterns, my sleeping patterns, even how hard I work. Yet he does all of these things as well, and it seems like a dreadful double standard."

M.K’s pulled a face. “That is very true,” she agreed. “This is gonna sound dumb, but have you told him how you feel about this?”

"I have," Aurie says, thinking back to that conversation. "He told me it wasn’t the same, that he knows when to stop. And perhaps he’s right, I do work too hard, but…I cannot abide the alternative.

M.K looked up from where she was petting her pet morning glory, smiling brightly at Aurie. “Yeah, come on in,” she said, standing up and brushing the pollen off her skirt. “What’s up?”

"He is…well, he’s finally returned and supposedly for good," she can’t keep the doubt out of her voice and she doesn’t know if she wants to, "and he took off a few weeks to spend with me. To show me that he truly cares." She sighs. "But he gave up his power to the Council, and the Council’s never going to give it back to him. He tells me he won’t resent me in time for choosing me over being General but…he didn’t even ask me. I’m not ready to stop working, even if I’m getting ready to leave the weaving halls, and it doesn’t ring well of our future…liaisons if he doesn’t bother to talk to me first.”

M.K leaned her head against Aurie’s shoulder, frowning. “I can probably deal with the Council,” she reassured, “but I understand what you’re concerned about. That wasn’t a very smart move on his part. If I may add, he’s done this before to me,” she said quietly. “So it’s more of a ‘Ronin’ thing then a ‘Ronin with you’ thing. Doesn’t make it less of an issue, though.”

"I’m just not," Aurie bites her lip.

M.K looked up from where she was petting her pet morning glory, smiling brightly at Aurie. “Yeah, come on in,” she said, standing up and brushing the pollen off her skirt. “What’s up?”

"I will say they at least had their clothes on," Aurie says dryly. She squeezes MK’s hands again. "Nod’s mentioned that due to Boggan attacks, Captain Shaydon has requested you stay in the palace. I believe that’s wise." Aurie sighs. "It’s strange to get more information from Nod than from Ronin. I suppose Nod trusts me more."

M.K sighed, scooting closer to Aurie so that they were sitting side by side. She didn’t know how to broach the topic that it wasn’t just Shaydon’s request that made her want to stay inside, so she latched onto Aurie’s last sentence instead. “How are things with you and Ronin?” she asked. “I mean, we don’t have to talk about it, but you make it sound like something’s up.”

"He is…well, he’s finally returned and supposedly for good," she can’t keep the doubt out of her voice and she doesn’t know if she wants to, "and he took off a few weeks to spend with me.
