the story |
[ iris west never breaks a promise.
she especially never breaks a promise to younger girls she decides to look out for. clementine can more than take care of herself, iris now knows, and it makes but little difference. there's an unspoken bond that comes with their lived experiences, and the event only strengthened her protective instincts. iris goes out of her way to check in.
it's why she now strolls down a hallway with clementine in tow, going through several color swatches. ]
How do you feel about blue?
[ blue is soothing. ]
[ meeting georgia mason reminded iris that she has a responsibility. the responsibility itself doesn't change regardless of where she is, here or central city — uncover the truth, and share it with the world. you can take the girl out of her town, but you can't take the reporter out of the girl. she's been investigating wonderland from day one. she's been keeping copious notes for just as long. she'd be lying if she said she hadn't considered a blog of her own, but if she does this ... then she finally accepts there is no way back home. at least, not one they know of yet.
it requires a certain degree of resignation iris had not been ready for, not until now. she's found a quiet table at a bar on the fifth floor, folders and an assortment of pens scattered around her. it's late into the night, but that's no surprise: ever since the sleeping curse, iris doesn't go to bed without a fight.
a glass of wine has been placed next to her laptop. hello, leonard snart. ]
[ iris suggested the coffee shop on the first floor.
george said they could meet within the hour, and iris knows for a fact the coffee shop experiences a lull during that time. she's grown fond of the place and the beverages it supplies, though nothing will beat cc jitters in her heart. iris misses central city, and she doesn't want to give up on finding a way back to her dad and her brother, but she's been slacking for too long. her job is the pursuit of truth, wherever she is.
and so she waits for the mason siblings, her hands cupping a warm mug of coffee. ]
