> Bina: Talk to her, dammit. Don't put this all on you.
Can't, can't, can't!
Want to - want too real bad - but can't.
Kendra gets it, and steps back.
"All right, take your time. There's no rush."
Bina breathes hard and squeezes her eyes shut.
It takes a while.
Eventually, the panic recedes.
It's not gone of course, it never really goes away, but it pulls back a little, hovering, like a hummingbird, somewhere at the base of her throat.
"Kendra?" she asks, forcing the word out, around the panic.
"Tell me there's a reason. You're smart, there's gotta be a reason, right?"
"For the Botfly to kill them. The people in the factory, Josephine's people. There is a reason, right?"
