The Art of Stalling

She was a bit unsure of what to do. Of course she wanted to get back to Madame, and the closer they got, the more excited she grew. But she also knew that the closer they got, the less time she had with Thomas. And once they arrived, she might never see him again.

She had to make the most of their last moments together.
