Aster smiled and took Duke's hand happily, squeezing it before they stepped out into the quiet store. At the chill she rubbed at her arm, trying not to shiver. She noticed Duke's attitude change, quickly putting her own guard up herself. She felt herself starting to get jittery, panic beginning to set in.
As they continued to walk she saw the boxes that were left on the counter for the both of them, letting herself be pulled to Duke's side as he pulled and cocked his pistol. "I know this isn't okay," she replied back, trying to keep her emotions under control. He said they'd be safe here, but here they were, not safe. Duke being wrong scared her, but what scared her more was the fact that Skorne and GA proved him wrong somehow.
