Corby watched Elric leave, suddenly everything going in slow motion. She looked around the kitchen. Why had he left? What was going on?
Had she done something wrong?
She poured away her hot chocolate and sat down at the table, waiting for nothing. Someone was at the front door, and was greeted by a lot of high pitched squeals of happiness. Corby didn't go to see what the commotion was about. In fact, Corby didn't leave the kitchen.
She fell asleep with her head resting on the table, silently snoring. Even as she slept, she still wondered what she'd done to Elric.
