Taking in strays is, all in all, an understandable vice. The dips in between their ribs, those large and forlorn eyes, they can help you forget the claws and the teeth and the danger lurking beneath fur. But the habit's a knife edge; your efforts may not be rewarded with kindness (animal instincts aren't discretionary) and you may get bit despite what you've overlooked. A stray doesn't care about pity. All it can know is survival.

These warnings apply to strays of the more human(oid) sort, too.

But what may even more perilous with this type than any drawn blood is what you can get when they grow to trust you. You can earn their undying loyalty...or their love. Either from such a wild thing is a precarious path to go down, if you allow yourself to do it.

[Bobbi is really trying. Spy training didn't prepare her for the apocalypse, but she's better off than some. She knows how to kill and defend and survive, at least. It's enough.

She's gone with groups when she can, but it doesn't last. It never lasts. Not when survival is the biggest priority and you can't always go back for someone or be... gone back for. But she's also a human with a heart (despite what her ex-husband says) and when she sees people in need, there she goes again.

That's suddenly the case, and she's approaching the girl -- teenage? Young anyway, younger than her -- and whispering:]
