Summary: Kate walks away from the town.
Her wrist was heavy. The two chains clinked together every time she moved her wrist and Kate wondered if she'd ever get used to the feeling.
It felt wrong. Walking out of town, on her own again. Her backpack was lighter now and even though she had less to worry about, even though her life was going to get easier, it hurt. The broken heart on her wrist matched the one still pounding away inside her chest.
Had it been worth it? When she had first arrived at the hospital and saw Tasha in that bed, she would have done anything to change it. She had done something and she'd been sort of regretting it ever since. Were those good hours here and there worth all of the lives of the people who had died? Was it worth the heartache she was feeling now?
Kate had tried not to think about her family. She didn't think about the parents she had run away from. And she really didn't think about how she had stolen her sister away from them too. If she had, you know, and Tasha hadn't recovered, it would have been better for them. Her parents would have had a body to bury, they would have had answers. A tragic accident, but at least it wasn't their fault.
It wouldn't have been like this. This was her fault. Not like Hitler's mother, she had made her sister a monster. She knew what sister was going to become and she did it anyways. Some of the moments, the good times when she wasn't worrying about the law and hunters and if there was a human heart in Tasha's belly, those moments had been worth it.
