XXI (Twenty one) The Assassin.
Explaining things to my sister was not something I was looking forward to, and if I was honest with myself, I didn’t even know I was going to explain everything to her. After locking the girl in one of the airship’s chambers, I briefly debated whether or not to tell the pilot. Paranoia got the best of me, however, and I decided to keep it just between us. At least for now.
She didn’t take it well. There were many tears. It was times like these that I wished I was better at communicating with people, or even managing to be kind. Expressing kindness to my sister had always come easy, but in this moment, where she was looking at me like I was some kind of injured animal, I never felt more distanced from her. Have you ever been around an injured animal? If so, you know what I mean. If not...well, you take pity on the animal, but you are also very cautious because one wrong move and it’ll kill you. That was how my sister was looking at me. And it nearly shattered me. To think that she thought that I could be capable of harming her....
“What are you going to do?” She asked me, and I tried not to fixate on how her voice trembled, or how I could feel her horror at what I had done. Instead, I focused on her question. It was a simple question, but somehow, it was the most difficult question she could have asked. What was I going to do?
