That's because I've got forward momentum. There's no virtue in it. It's just a balancing act. I don't dare stop.

Lara Croft: Probably Scarier than most Vor

She was meant to wait. She was meant to stay out of this while the "proper authorities" handled the situation. The thing of it was Lara wasn't meant to be here at all, on this far off world in a distant future that might not even be her own. The people she held dear were dead or painfully out of reach and even as much of a loner as she was by nature, she guarded those who were left even more closely.

And really, once you walk into Hell for someone you love, it's surprisingly easy to do so again without much of a thought. She did it for Sam, she does it now for Miles.

Not having a gaping wound in her stomach is a good start, though the hastily patched knife slash on her hip is starting to nag a little. She is not a naturally intimidating figure, but there is something terrifying about the woman who forces the door of the interrogation room open with a crowbar. Streaked in dirt and blood and dressed in stolen clothes, there's something vicious about the woman who leaps across the room to bring the same crowbar smashing down on the head of the one guard with brutal efficiency. He crumples to the floor with little more than a groan.

That woman seems to disappear with a breath when she turns. It's only Lara, dropping to kneel in front of the chair Miles' tied to, worry radiating off her. "Miles- Miles, are you all right?"
