Victor reads The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Grouchy Ladybug, and Where the Wild Things Are (thrice, twice, and five times respectively) for the girls, and she gives them kisses goodnight. Then she reads part of a motor manual for Jude (yes, but he requested it), and tucks him in, and then Anya starts crying and she has to go put her back to sleep (Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See, read four times).

By the time she makes it to the couch, it's nine-thirty and she's yawning.

Cole's working on mending a hole in her hero costume, because it was there and needed done, and he has steady hands. "Everyone safe in bed?"

He watches her quietly for a moment, analyzing those little movements, reading what her body language has to say. "You seem to be doing a little better."

"I'm sure they did." He doesn't know if that's true, but if she believes it, that's all he needs.

"You know you can't." It would be impractical at best, and suicidal at worst.

"Yeah, but not like that." He knows it's a harsh fact of reality that sometimes it's not possible to save everyone, and it's a fact she often refuses to accept.

"You can't always force people to do what you want them to do." He stops mending the cloth, mostly because he doesn't want to accidentally stab her with the needle, and pokes it into the pincushion. "What could you do?"

"All the kids in the entire world? By yourself?"

"Victor... I'm not trying to say that you should forget about those kids. They deserve to have someone remember them. But unfortunately I don't think it's possible to save every single person."

"I know. And it's not a bad thing that you feel that way."

"And then what?"

"That's not a plan, that's an idea." He knows she sometimes has poor impulse control when it comes to things like this, and he wants to make absolutely sure that she isn't going to run off and try to talk down the monsters without any solid backup plan.

And he gives her the I-know-you're-pretending-to-humor-me look in return. "That doesn't mean you can't help, but you've got to play by their rules."

"That depends on what the plan is. And what kind of help you can even give."
