"Any of this."
Capri propped herself up on one elbow, stroked Julia's hair. "What's wrong, sweetie?"
Julia curled in on herself, going from semi-fetal to full-fetal. "I've never - I've never done anything with another girl. Sexually. And I've never done anything sexual entirely willingly."
"What do you want, Julia?"
"I don't know. I want you. But that confuses me."
Capri kissed her forehead. "Take your time figuring it out, honey. I'm not going anywhere." She laughed, softly so as not to wake Halloran. "Literally."
Julia tensed and turned to look at Capri. "We will get you out of here," she whispered fiercely. "We will kick her ass, we will take this city back. And you will be free."
Capri settled into her arms. "I know."
"I know. I trust you."
Julia relaxed incrementally and held her. "...I trust you, too."
"That's new to you, isn't it?"
"I will not hurt you, Julia. I promise."
She hugged Capri tightly. "Thank you."
They settled into each other, gradually drifting off to sleep. On the edge of consciousness, Julia thought she may have heard Capri whisper, "I love you."
