Title: One Door Leads to the Point of Return
Characters: Eloise, Charles
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Through 6x07 "Dr. Linus"
Summary: For lost_in_108 prompt #25, return. The title is from a riddle they used on Dark Shadows, because it's the first thing the prompt reminded me of.

She doesn't turn when she hears the door open. She knows it's him and she knows what he'll ask. This time the answer is yes, but she wishes it were still no.

"Have you found it?" Yes.

She holds her head high to show she's not afraid; there's nothing he can take from her that she hasn't already lost. Still her hand shakes when he pries the paper from her fingers.

"You're sure these are the right coordinates?" Yes.

She feels him smiling and it makes her sick. "You could come with me, you know."

This time she turns, swallowing the urge to slap him.

"Good riddance, Charles."
