A/N: Written for #ChoicesCreates24 Prompt: Movement of the Stars. This is my first ever work in the Choices fandom, and I am nervous. I hope it’s alright. Also, I am assuming, just for this one-shot, that the stars in the La Huerta skies move, just as the normal stars in our normal world do. Can’t be seen by the naked eye that much, but they are constantly moving. I think? Ugh. I am terrible at this. Please keep reading.
Everyone gathered around the fire the Vaanti have built, Taari dancing around it with the other Vaanti kids, Seraxa being forced to dance with them, and her friends briefly forgetting the dire situation they’re all in and having the time of their lives – all of this should make her happy. It should make her want to join in, sing (with terribly pitch) and playfully irritate Michelle. At the very least, it should make her feel safe, just for the time being.
But Myra was feeling far from that. The idols she had collected, the pasts, and the futures of her friends she had witness was rather…off-putting. As her eyes fell on each of the face that has now become so familiar it hurt, she only remembered what they had been through, and what they are possibly going to go through. It has already happened with Quinn. How long more till the next one went down? What was she going to do then to save them? Will she even be able to save them on time?
