atreideslioness: (Daughter of the Golden Path)

Ghanima had returned to her suite after class, not yet willing to go down to the board of the missing to add Algren and Tyler to the roll.

She had risked the spice trance for nothing, failed to see - to remember - even the slightest glimpse of the future, but there was still the sense that something was just out of reach. Fragments of memories, perhaps, but of things hidden under sands. It was the same feeling she got under her skin when a storm was brewing out in the deep desert, and the worms dove for the planet's core. You could not hold a whirlwind, after all.

Her inner voices were adamant, with Chani at their lead, and Ghanima found herself forced to agree to their demand. She would not try the spice trance again, not while there was still too much at stake.

Her phone rang a few minute later.

"Pick up, pick up, pick up," Biff chanted as he waited. His last few calls--to Loki, Barney and Daisy--had gotten him nowhere.

"Ghanima? It's Biff," he said, the relief evident in his voice.

There was a buzz of static, then Biff said, "Yeah, I wish. I'm still in LA. Turns out declaring that your best friend was the Son of God just gets you escorted out of the Portalocity lounge, and not to the front of the line."

"Most of the Bible Belt is gone, which is good because it means there are a lot fewer televangelists trying to sucker the fuckwits out of their money before the end of the world comes," Biff replied. "At least, that's my guess about what's going on--no one upstairs is exactly returning my messages."

"Well, fucksticks," Biff said eloquently. "Guess that explains why Loki's phone didn't even exist. I thought he'd just stopped paying the bill."

"Oh, even as a snowflake, he'd end up being a purple one or something," Biff said. Babbling into his phone was so much better than paying attention to what was going on around him. " these other worlds, did they talk about a big black...something that ate the landscape?"

"Good to know I'm among friends," Biff said with a wry, slightly manic, twinge to his laughter. "It just ate the bacon truck down the street. This is nothing run by Josh--he loved bacon."

"Think it's too late for me to find a nice willing adulteress?" Biff asked.

"You were--" static, "--too good for me," Biff said, voice getting a little more frantic. "Ghani?"

Then there wasn't anything left to say.

Had it been cowardly and selfish of him to leave Arrakis with Alice and Hania rather than face the danger? His twin would tell him the truth and from her he could face it. Although perhaps her judgement would be distracted by the presence of her baby niece. Leto knocked on Ghanima's door, holding a recently fed Hania in his arms.

"//She is, but she is resting in her room.//" He replied in the same language, out of habit, and wrapped his free arm around his sister.

"Will you let me in?" he added, his voice lighter. Seeing Ghanima, safe, just made things feel easier.

"We're just a few doors down, and we thought another room couldn't hurt if Hania decides that she doesn't want to sleep," he said, entering the room. "Even if it's not as homely as yours." Of course he approved of her redecoration of the room.

Finding a seat, he made sure Hania was comfortable. "You know why we came here, then."

"It was happening in our universe too. I could see the end coming close." He closed his eyes briefly, recalling the terrifying vision. "I considered staying, but I couldn't leave them." Alice and Hania. "And you."

He reached out for her hand. "You could have called me," he said quietly, but it was not his intention to question her choice.

"Yes, although one is easier than the other, if not less of a responsibility." He looked at Hania too, and smiled. Despite everything, looking at his daughter made him happy.

"Want to hold her?" he offered Ghani.

Max had had a couple of nights of drinking alone, and he'd even gotten started on it tonight. But, meh. It got old.

So he was looking for someone to drink with.

Or talk to.

Or, really, just spend time with.

So Max was knocking on Ghani's door. And he'd brought tequila.

Max opened the door a crack and stuck his head in. He wasn't yet drunk enough not to take a moment to study the room, and Ghani. "I'm not interrupting, am I?"

Because if he was? He could totally come back later. Max recognized that some people would rather be productive than get trashed with him.

That prompted a wry grin. "I know that feeling."

Oddly enough, Max managed to deliver that without making it sound like a proposition.

"They're here?" Max quirked an eyebrow ever so slightly, considering the implications of that. "Glad they're doing okay." Nonchalant, like that was to be expected.

Max nodded in approval. "Did anyone else come with them?" Or had they left everything behind. Not just their world, but Ghani's, too, in a sense.
