Ezra breathed the coolness of the earth in the crawl space under Kalin's house.

"Will this do?" rumbled Kalin. Ezra could hear the uncertainty in his voice.

"Yes," he said, and settled on the ground with relief. "This feels... right. I'm not sure why, as I haven't really had a home for three years, but this is like that... I think?"

"Good then. I'm glad."

Ezra laughed, "Kalin, you sound so smug."

"Hey. You just told me I've made you a home, how else should I feel?"

Ezra shook his head and hugged Kalin. "That's all you need to be."
