She toppled, letting out a surprised yelp.

And he caught her, right before she hit the ground.

She weighed less than she seemed to.

"Believe it or not, I am trying to help you," he muttered.

Yes. This all seemed very helpful.

She grabbed onto his coat, using fistfuls of it to haul herself up.

The order seemed to calm her, slightly. She wasn't used to being in charge of her own destiny. "I need to get my things." Pushing away from him, she re-entered her room, digging under the mattress. She found what she was looking for and stashed it in her pocket before standing.

"Okay."

He smiled and walked out the door, walking slowly so she could fall into step with him.

It was a short walk. The streets were narrow and winding. Eventually, they came to the narrow squeeze between the building. He went through without any explanation and waited for her on the other side. A courtyard awaited them - grim in the darkening hour - with a door. It said: 'Closed'. Wyndham studied it thoughtfully, before knocking.

She didn't like the looks of the alleyway. It was dark, and spooky. But he disappeared down it, and it was either be out in the streets alone or with him in the alley.

She chose the alley.

Arms wrapped around herself, she was tensed to bolt.

The door opened and the Maria Ricci peered through it. Her expression showed the suspicion she probably felt. Wyndham's face was unfamiliar: so was Magdalena. Though the latter's nervousness seemed to spike some curiosity in the woman's face.

"We're closed," she affirmed, still.

"We can read," Wyndham smilingly assured her. "But she needs your help. The Firefly's help."

Maria's eyes went from him, to Magdalena, and then back to him. "I don't know you. I don't know what you're talking about."

He sighed. "I'm a friend of Dom's." A terrible lie, but one she couldn't verify at the moment. "And this is Magdalena. She's a Wonder. Her brother was just arrested tonight. She has nowhere to stay."

Maria's chin tilted up, indecisively. She turned her attention to Magdalena again. "How do I know you're a Wonder?"

Lena went pale. "I want to go," she told Wyndham, stepping back towards the thin press between the buildings.

He pulled her back, gently. "Surely this can be done inside, between two women," he told Maria.

She considered it, then opened the door. "Only she can come in," the woman announced, expressly steely.

"You can't leave me with her. You don't even know her," Lena said, desperately, clinging to Wyndham's sleeve.

He tipped his hat to both of them - who was this guy? - and then turned to leave, despite the woman he brought with him calling him back in... Spanish? Maria hadn't learned Spanish. This was going to be fantastic.

She held the door open. "Are you coming in? It'll get cold inside, otherwise." Could she even understand what she was saying?

He left her.

Just left her.

Turning to the woman, Lena finally nodded, stiffly. What choice did she have? Entering the bar, she looked around tensely, expecting something horrible.

It was empty. They were closed. The door closed behind the woman.

Maria flew up and landed on one of the metal chairs at the bar. "I'm Maria Ricci. What's your name?"

An eyebrow shot up in surprise. Maybe confusion. "What do you mean?"

She dropped down from the chair and walked up to the woman. Her voice was slow. "What do you mean?"

"My..." A hand trailed up her arm and over her shoulder, and she looked shamed and miserable.

Which did nothing but worry Maria more. She put a gentle arm on Lena's shoulder. "I can't help you if you don't tell me."

She swallowed. "When I child, I grow... like a bird." Like an angel. But she didn't dare say that, and affront God even further. "My papi cut them off."

She hesitated.

But she probably had to, if the woman was to believe her. Looking around to make sure they were alone, she slipped her dress off her shoulders as she turned, letting it droop in the back to reveal the scars.

They were very messy. The knife had been dull, and her father had been forced to contend with her struggling, too, and his knife had slipped places it had not been meant to go.

Maria covered her mouth with her hand for a moment, to suppress a yawp that was stuck in her throat regardless.

Then she gently pushed the woman's dress up. "I... I can't even begin to... say... anything."

If only Dom were here!
