Warnings: Consensual relationship briefly mentioned as starting with the initiating party is underage (17 and 19), and also between two people who are, by mutual agreement, keeping a lot of things from each other, because of dangerous circumstances around them.
Notes: I wrote someone throw me a parade it only took a year and a half. This was written super stream of consciousness well after I should have been asleep, and I'm not rereading it or else I'll never post it, so I'm hoping this makes sense? Meet one half of the sisters that are central to the main story, although it's not actually the one who's a main character.
Also, I need a tag for Darling Grey.

Also please feel free to tell me if I messed up the pronouns. Or crit me in any other way, I am always crit-open and should probably start mentioning that.
