This is a bad idea. Lyme’s not sure she’s up for mentoring at all, much less with a kid she doesn’t know from a district she’s only been to on Tours. What does she know about any of what this girl’s been through?
But she needs somebody, and there isn’t anybody else.
That’s what it comes down to, really. There isn’t anybody else.
Lyme's never been good at looking away from kids who need her. This time she's navigating without a map, this time the Arena's years long and barely over. But she can't not try.
This is basically the same as the Lyme-adopts-Rokia fic I posted here a little while back, but now it's on AO3 if that's easier for people.
