She wants to stand outside, look up, and know:
the building in front of her won't vanish.
She wants to know:
the building is safe inside,
that we've searched, really thoroughly,
and there are no monsters we can't fight.
She can fight.
Damn, can she fight.
But this time, she won't be alone
in any fights that need fighting.
Nor is she alone now.
And the monsters won't be like before.
If ever the day comes
when she no longer lives in the building,
she will want to look up at it and say:
"Goodbye. Thanks for the memories."
But for now,
she wants to stand outside,
look up at the building in front of her,
and know she’s home.
