((Lillian 'Lily' Caldwell continued from Christmas Tree.))

Lily felt a little better now that she was on the move. Made her feel like she had a plan. A good one. She didn't. But the illusion was there. As long as she had an immediate objective, the rest would wait.

Maybe it would have helped if she'd looked at her map, though. She had no idea about what was beyond… wherever she was.

She should stop. Get her bearings. Then she could make a better plan. One that might get her to the next sunrise.

Library. Libraries were… comforting. Not usually so dusty. But it was the sort of place Lily would have gone if this were a harmless trip like it was meant to be.

Lily walked in and saw the shape of someone curled up near a shelf.

Immediate panic. Who was it? Friend? Foe? She didn't have a plan for either, she didn't know how to deal with this, she wasn't ready—

She quickly dived behind a different shelf. She'd meant to be quiet, but in her panic she slammed the shelf with the heavy duffle bag dangling from her shoulder, and that set her off-balance, sending the rest of her slamming into the shelf too. The shelf creaked under the pressure, and for one moment Lily thought it was gonna stay in place. Then it toppled, sending up a huge cloud of dust amid the falling books. The only saving grace was that it didn't knock any other shelves over on its way down.



That had not gone to plan, whatever that plan had been. Lily was left standing in the open, frozen like a deer in the headlights.
