It took three books to get Scarlett to sleep - although Dahlia was taking the move well, her sister was still on edge. 

Scarlett: Wh-where N-nana goodnight k-k-kiss?? 

Ember: I’ve told you baby, it’s just you and me and your sister now! Nana will come to visit but this is home now sweetheart - 

Scarlett: O-oh. Want Nana. 

Ember: I know, I know. Just try to sleep alright? 

She kissed her daughter on the forehead - and stroked her hair until her little eyes shut. Ember sighed, stood up, and hoped that Scarlett would feel better in the morning.

Asher: … and so now we’re here. You and I, and this change. Pea, we need to reach out-

Peony: I know, we need to reach out to Violet. She didn’t deserve to find out like this, neither of you did.

Asher: I’m not mad at you, Pea. I love you, and you have to know I wouldn’t change anything- you’ve given me so much, and I love Opal, Chrys, and Cam. I love you, Pea.

Peony: I love you too, Asher. I love you too.

Elder: Rainy Day. From the moment I met you, I knew I loved you. I never told you this, because, well I was too afraid that you didn’t feel the same. I’ve loved you for so long and it’s hurt me so much to see you with other people. I can’t wait to turn over a new leaf with you and to love each other for the rest of our lives.
