She stands at her locker door, soulful eyes reflected in the mirror above the creased photograph.

On the left, a happier incarnation of herself in Zak's arms. Arms that will never hold her again; the laughter and love they shared now bittersweet memories stifled by the fear and desperation permeating the rag-tag fleet of humanity she is charged with defending.
