A twig snapped, and Helena stepped away from me. " She's waiting for you, you know. Don't blow it with her." She gave me a watery smile and turned and walked away.
I turned around, and her face lit up, closely followed by a controlled gaze. She was upset with me. "Who is she?" she said, her face turned to the floor. I lifted her chin with one finger. " She's my sister. Her name's Helena."
"Really? Because I've heard that so many times.." she replied, her voice laced with scepticism. " She's my sister, Willow. I promise you. " "How will you prove it to me?" she said. "How do I trust you, when you kept me in the dark about her?" She sighed, and turned to leave. I caught her elbow. " Please, Willow. Believe me. "
She sat a while. She'd told me she needed time, to battle with what she was to do.
Suddenly she turned, her eyes wide. " I know what I want," she said.
