River pushes the door shut behind Ace and turns back to face her mate, a sudden wave of tiredness coming over her.

The stress of the evening's events is clearly written in her features.

Again, love, I'm sorry, I didn't know where else to bring her.

That's fine, Richard says, walking towards her and patting Dam as he passes.

He gathers her into a fierce hug. Are you all right?

He holds her, just holds her, for a long long moment.

You have to be careful, River.

What would he do if he lost you?

Milliways isn't a sanctuary. There are people here who'll hurt you if they can, and not just this Blodwen, for the simple reason of being who and what you are.

He was stupid not to tell her this before, but it hadn't been an issue for so long...

It may be now, he cautions, touching her forehead with his own. How petty is Blodwen? How clever? How willing is she to use one person to reach another?

Live and learn.

He frowns at that. He hadn't forgotten, but he'd assumed Blodwen just knew.

Did your vision change at all?


Can she change outside the moon?

It'd be useful.

He pushes aside the thought of why can't he do it.

Perhaps she just knew. Or asked around, though he really doesn't like what that implies. The other two possibilities seem more likely.

Either way, be careful who you mention that part to.

I know, he says, holding her close again. And he does. He's been eaten for pack before. It's why he hasn't argued with her over it.

He's just trying to figure out a way for her to do it without being in so vulnerable a position.

It's a damn good question and he can't hide the uncertainty in his scent.

Stay on good terms with Security. Keep up with your training.

Fists probably can't hurt Blodwen, but maybe they can surprise her, if they're fast enough. And a good exhausting workout is an excellent distraction.

He nods.

Keep a low profile. If she finds you're looking at her, she has more of a reason to look back.

He pulls his head back a bit and looks at her unblinking.

No direct confrontations. She goes after you, you run. Find Belar or Demeter.

He hates not being able to add himself to that list.

If I can. He blinks now.

It depends on the circumstances, but he has no desire to get into a fight with that weight class.

If Blodwen goes after River, well. That's another matter entirely.

We'll be careful, he promises, hugging her.

...you should know she's not the only threat in the bar.

He's going to need English for their names until River learns the canine. He compiles a list as they sit down.

"You're already aware of Witherspoon. The others likely to attack are a man called Le Chiffre and a younger man named Zuko." Canine descriptors accompany those. "The latter is capable of controlling fire, though I haven't seen either of them for quite some time.

"Not an immediate threat, but most likely won't be keen on meeting you, are Sergeant Harry Wells, his cousin Andrew Wells, and Private Lawrence Cooper. The soldiers also haven't shown up for some time.

"Finally, I've been informed that Sam and Dean Winchester are monster hunters with a very unfriendly attitude towards werewolves. I've met them once, though they didn't know what I was." And still don't as far as he knows. He probably would have forgotten had Wells not made such an effort to warn him.

He can tell by her scent that she really doesn't like that idea.

But there isn't a whole lot about the current situation to like anyway.

"We have a spare handgun. I can teach you how to use it."

Live and learn.

"Against more mundane threats. Perhaps to greater ones, if you can get off a lucky shot."

A very lucky shot.

He arches an eyebrow at her.

"I've never recommended the 'shoot first' method," he says dryly. "That being said, it never hurts to keep one's options open."

In Ryan's experience, those who can shift out of moon can also do so whenever they wish. Granted, Spoon is his only reference point, but he'd still be a little jealous if he weren't busy being distracted by other things.

Like threat to pack.

"It's a pity this place doesn't have CCTV."

"Closed-circuit television," he explains. "Basically video cameras at several choice points to record activity in an effort to catch criminal acts."

He has no issue with this.

"I doubt it. Too many medieval magic users on the force," holding her close.

Someone is falling prey to stereotypes.

"Fair enough," he agrees.

Happy you're unhurt.

Love you.

If he has his way, they'll stay curled up like that for some time. Bad day.
