Rose stands away from the crowds in a place where she can see the beach and watch the waves roll in underneath the night sky. Fireworks, people... these things are unimportant. Kalina wants to be with... well, not with people, but with something that reminds her of herself, at least. She looks down at her hand, still running over all of the things she just did.
