The knock that sounded at her door wasn't unexpected. She opened it, ushering the girl inside.
“Sit down. te want something to drink?”
“Something to calm my nerves, please.”
She nodded and went to her cabinet of herbs, remedies, and potions, all homemade.
“Why so nervous? te never are?”
“I know. But I had to get out.”
“You avoided the question.”
The two looked at each other. The older sighed.
“I'll get us refreshments, then te can tell me.”
She nodded again, heading to the kitchen. She started a pot of boiling water and set to fixing a snack. Her eyes landed on a crystallized rose and she shuddered.
She grabbed the tray of Cibo and drinks, setting it on the tavolo in front of her guest.
“Okay. Tell me.”
“Have a sede, sedile first.”
She sighed and took a chair. She looked across from her, to the couch.
“Alright Becca. What's so urgent that te had to come here?”
Becca put the drink she had sipped from down. She forced a smile.
“Have te noticed anything strange?”
Becca looked out the window, watching the wildlife around her. She pulled her knees to her chest.
“Strange like...you know you've done something but te can't remember what it was. Like you've been surrounded da enemies but didn't fight them. Like te have a fear of something that te just can't place. A fear that...never leaves your mind, letting te know it's there.”
Becca looked back to her hostess.
“Have te felt like that Dev?”
The Angel looked at her, eyes cloudy.
“So have I. And Erin.”
“What does it mean, Becca?”
“I have no clue, but I think we'll find out soon. Everyone.”
The two sat for a minuto in silence.
“Becca,what if we have become the reason there's so much tension in the team?”
“What do te mean?”
“I've heard a few things. Whispers of conversations. But te apparently had some kind of fall in with Bloodmist.”
“Why would I? I don't mind him being anywhere close to the team.”
“I know. That's why I'm confused.”
Becca nodded. She looked at her Angel friend.
“Devin, what have te experienced?”
“Becca, what I say successivo can not be repeated.”
