Re: Two weeks later
Millie followed at a safe distance, just within reach to grab Yehudit if she started to fall. Millie had to admire her, she had never been confident to try stairs when she was on crutches.

Yehudit went Thunk! Thunk! Thunk! on the last three steps but managed to stay upright and only made her ankle a little more sore. She continued on out of the schoolhouse.

Re: Two weeks later
Millie winced but kept a careful eye on Yehudit until she was safely on the floor. Millie opened her mouth to inquire if Yehudit was all right but decided she would only be aggravated or embarrassed if she asked. She fell into step next to her, thankfully the inn wasn't too terribly far. Millie certainly didn't want to risk the wrath of Aunt Lia if Yehudit came home injured. "I hope you like your dress."

"Me too." Yehudit said distractedly. They would be passing the bakery on the way to the inn. Could it hurt to see what Uncle Nelek was up to?

Re: Two weeks later
Millie moved around Yehudit to open the door for her. It looked like the rain was tapering off a bit, always a good sign.

Re: Two weeks later
Sileas was lost in thought, jumping at the sound of Questa's voice. "You wouldn't understand. But to Millie, it's not nothing."

"But that's not always the case, Questa. Marriage is supposed to be for life. Mama and Papa still love one another. Aunt Lia and Uncle Aron have been together longer than Millie's parents and they still love one another."

Re: Two weeks later
Questa gave Sileas a blank look. All this love and marriage stuff sounded mythical to her.

Re: Two weeks later
"I knew you wouldn't understand," Sileas said softly. "When one is born and raised in a loving family where everyone is close, it is very abnormal for something like this to happen. Grandmama and Grandpapa have been together longer than anyone I know and he's never stopped caring about her or their family."

"I don't believe Larrigan would do such a thing. He reminds me so much of Papa in so many ways. But if he did, no, we would not do anything. I on the other hand..."

"He's a very good lad." Sileas smiled softly. "He has every quality that I wanted in a husband. I'm very grateful he was able to pull me from my dark place and break down the walls I had up."

"That was all I was going to say, other than we were very good friends first." Just like Mama and Papa started out.

Sileas's brow furrowed. "What picture? Of me and Larrigan talking?"

Sileas's frown deepened. She stood, hands on her hips. "What are you inferring?"

Re: Two weeks later
"I...you...we...you..." Sileas sputtered. "I never once said Larrigan and I had done anything other than holding hands and some kissing. I'd like to at least pretend I still have a reputation to maintain. When I said talking, that's what I meant. Just like you and I were." Sileas stormed out in to the kitchen.

Re: Two weeks later
Questa was offending people left and right today. She wondered if there was something in the water making everyone so sensitive.

Re: Two weeks later
Sileas checked to see if there was any hot water left, relieved to find enough to make one more cup of tea. She fixed it for herself, grabbed a biscuit and sat down to relax while she waited for Larrigan.
