She had successfully brought the boy into her room. Laying him on her bed, she then took his weapons and some clothing off him that would make laying down uncomfortable, placing the items in her cabinets, all but his bag. Interested in what type of person this boy was, she went through his bag. Almost instantly her eyes were drawn to a book in his bag, she had always enjoyed books. She pulled the book out of the bag and gazed at the cover of the book. Symbols were written across the book, symbols that she didn’t understand. She opened the book and flipped through the pages. It had more of these unrecognizable symbols and pictures to add to the writing, but before she could continue pursuing the book, someone knocked on the door. She jumped up and ran to the door, opening it partly to see who it was.
“Oh!” cried the figure, whom was quickly identified as her friend, Ellen. “I knew you would be in here. Where have you been sister? The High Priest Father has been looking for you!” her words halted when she noticed the boy on the bed. “What do we have here?”
“A boy” she opened the door wider and walked through it, closing it behind her. “A sleeping boy.”
“You know very well as I sister Ma-”
“Thats quite enough. I will hear none of that name, begone.”
“I.. I am sorry dear sister. I forget what that names bears for you.”
“I too am sorry. I know you meant no harm dear sister Ellen. I overreacted.” She looked down at the boy after finishing her words. “You must excuse me, this boy is in need of attention. I will to heal him up, despite the wishes of Edgar.”
“You still show no respect for the Father. Calling him by his first name all the time will get you nowhere good.”
“You have no need to lecture me. I know what my actions bring, but those will not stop me. I care not what that evil man thinks, I shall lend none of my respect to him.”
“Indeed” echoed Ellen. “Once you draw the line between just and injust, you fight the injust to no end. This I have learn from being around you for so long.”
“No one deserves to be harmed or harm. I will fight for justice over injustice anyday.”
“Then you would enjoy hearing this my sister. Your little incident last night, was useless. The act will continue.”
The woman’s face became completely barren of emotion upon hearing the news. “I feared this would happen.” She glanced over to the boy. “I’m going to focus on him now, you should go.”
“Rebelling by healing him won’t calm your raging emotions sister. When are you going to finally snap?”
The woman turned to face Ellen. “Let us hope it will not be soon. I’ll see you later Ellen, at dinner.”
“You have my blessing sister. Good luck.”
“Thank you, Ellen”
Ellen turned around, and went down the spiral stairs of the tower. The woman stood there waiting until she knew Ellen was gone. The door to the tower closed, echoed, signaling that Ellen had left. The woman turned to the door and placed her hand on it, but did not push the door open. She listened carefully to the sounds within the room, in case the boy had awaken, sure enough, the boy had. There was movement within the room, and talking.
“Hmm? Tulips doesn't have a smell...”
Hearing this the woman reacted quickly. She opened the door and announced her presence to him.
“And where do you think you are going young man? You have yet to receive my blessings.”
The flowers bent over in the young man’s presence, they lost their colour and died.
