A year after Pitfall, they finally move out of the Shatterdome. There were no excuses or announcements, there was no need for anything more than a quiet resignation and a few promises to keep in touch, invitations to visit.
Their new home might not look like much, but to Raleigh it’s everything. The walls are brick, not metal, the view from the window is of thick, dark forest instead of the ocean, and when he turns from fetching another box in from the van they’d rented, he can see Herc standing on the porch, smiling at him.
Maybe it started out as something different, some kind of desperate coming together because Raleigh understood Herc’s pain and knew that while he’d been allowed to retreat to a place of anonymity to deal with it, for Herc it wasn’t so easy.
