Lilac: Hey, mom. Lavender and I were thinking. Windenburg is soooo boring. We’ve lived here forever. You’re retired now and a hall of famer. Someone famous like you should be living somewhere that makes more sense. Like San Myshuno! Rain: San Myshuno, huh? Lilac: Yes and you know what San Myshuno is full of? Karaoke bars… Rain: ….you have a point. What do you think, sweetheart? Lavender: Can you two stop being gross?

She spun the lock on the safe, swearing as it took two tries, and when it popped open she rifled through the cabinet for her passport and her documents folder.

She was counting out stacks of notes, a small part of their emergency cash money, when the door to the drawing room opened and light flooded into the room. Beatrice’s shadowed form loomed in the doorway. “What do you think you’re doing?” She drawled, and while the lack of surprise on her impassive face wasn’t unexpected, its absence in her voice was. “You can’t be thinking of stealing from us, surely?”
Dorothy: Our last night together in Appaloosa Plains..
Conner: Ah yes of course! Oh wow, umm ..
Dorothy: Tidal is different. He is not fully a mermaid, nor is he fully human and my cove is not very happy with me nor very accepting of him. I feel like the best thing for him, would be to be with you….
