From Riley Adams Stops Time

After a moment of silence, she said, “I’m not one to willingly pry into other people’s emotions or my own for that matter, but are you okay? Back in your room, it seemed like something was bothering you.”

Artemis was quiet for a moment and then said, “You know, a year ago this wouldn’t have bothered me. I could get stuck in time or another dimension and it didn’t matter. I didn’t have anywhere to be. I was living this sort of nomadic existence. But now…for the first time in my life I feel like I have a home. I have somewhere I want to get back to at the end of the day and someone to go home to. I didn’t realize how important it was to me until I got stuck here.” She looked over at Riley. “I’ve tried to act like everything’s okay, but it’s not. I’m scared, Riley. Scared that I can’t fix this and I won’t get to go home.”
