Luna hadn't opened her shop since the incident with the it. She'd hid out at home with all the doors and windows locked and warded. Until she could figure out exactly what was 'wrong' with it, she didn't feel comfortable trying to explain to anyone what she felt. Until she saw the papers she hadn't read for quite some time. They tended to pile up in a corner until they were remembered and dragged out. Duty bound to read them, they were her father's work after all, she shrieked and stood while staring at one headline.
They - they're out there - but, Adrian's there.
No, no, no, no.
I just found him - he found me?
They can't have him.
I love... him, she realized and then sat down with a plunk while her eyes blinked and stared at nothing.
Rousing at last, where a 'normal' girl might have denied it, Luna knew what she knew and decided to act. Running toward her desk, since she knew she'd never be able to actually go there with them there, Luna scribbled out a hasty owl.
You can't stay there because I love you. Get away as soon as you can before 'it' gets you like it tried to get Gabby.
