Dave knows by now the way that Kim likes her coffee - strong and black, staple of med students everywhere - and he's got it boiling as he waits for her to show up at the apartment.

The cautious way she sounded on the phone, he thinks it might come in handy.

She hesitates before knocking at his door, her hand raised in midair.

How can-- do I really want to do this?

But she's come too far to turn back now, and so Kim eventually raps on the wood-- once, twice, and three times, in quick succession.

"Thanks," Kim says, smiling as she moves past him through the door.

"It's good to see you."

"How are things going at work?"

She keeps going toward the kitchen, simply to have something to do.

She smiles in thanks and wraps her fingers around the mug as if to warm them.

"I'd be surprised if you didn't, honestly."

"Neither am I, right now," Kim says, ruefully. "I wish I was."

"I guess I do."

Kim looks down at her coffee, unable to meet his eyes.

"I just don't know how to say it."

"I'm, um."

She takes a breath and lets it out slowly, then looks up at him.

"I'm leaving."

Kim nods.

"Moving. To England."

"Not -- well."

Her words are slow and haltingly uncertain, but there's a soft weariness underlying them.

"Not the way you mean, no. I'm not going back to Fionavar, Dave; I don't think I would, even if I could."

I don't think I would, anyway.

"But I can't -- it's not the same here as it was before, not for me. I don't... I don't fit any more."

"It's not that-- I don't want to get away from anything, Dave."

There's anguish in Kim's voice now.

"I'm going to Glastonbury. It's -- it's as close as I can think of, as close as I can find, to being like -- like somewhere that --"

She looks down at her hands.

"-- well. You know, I think. Don't you?"

Her head snaps up, and she stares at him, wide-eyed.

"Dave, I didn't mean that you--"

There's distress in the clear gray eyes, distress in her voice.

"-- that you didn't, that you weren't--"

"... no. I guess there's not, is there?"

No one but ghosts, and memories, and memories of ghosts.
