The Keep - Garden Tower
The smallest tower of the Keep but it is in the best shape. It is on the northeast corner of the Keep.

Millie propped her elbows on some stones. She missed her shop. She missed her friend. She missed her siblings. She sank to the floor, her back against the outer wall.

"Millie?"

Lek began tugging on Millie's hand to lead he from the tower.

"Pinja. She wasn't getting any better and is growing weaker by the moment. She can't keep anything down. But she talked Aalyssa into taking her to where she believed Jack and the raiders to be hiding. She told Difyr to tell me goodbye. She couldn't even do it herself. Her friend wasn't even worth a real face to face goodbye."

Lek was shocked.

"If Pinja was so weak she never should have left! Can she even surv- No!" More tears. "She had gone through so much and survived, we did so much for her- especially you! How could she leave us like that?" Lek felt hurt, grief stricken and angry.

"According to Difyr, Pinja felt is was her responsibility to make certain Jack never hurt anyone again. I don't see how she could have survived, Difyr did not seem to hold any hope. It sounded like this was Pinja's deathbed wish." Millie started crying. "I would have wanted to say goodbye."

"I was talking to Bai about Galina," which Sileas knew would have to be a whole other conversation. "And he said she sounded like a servant of this demon, Molech. And then he went on to say how Molech could...convince...his followers to create children who belong to him. He went on to say how this demon's children had uncontrollable, unexplained rages, and lustful. Yehudit has these rages that no one knows the cause or what to do for them. And she's always wanting to look at guys with their shirts off. Every thing that Bai said is a symptom, she has exhibited. At one point Galina had said both Yehudit and I were created to destroy the family, but I was able to fight her influence. Most likely the follower she sent didn't manage to create a child with she who gave birth to me, perhaps because she was already pregnant by Keegan Lowell."

Sileas sighed and sat down next to him. This really wasn't her place to talk about, and Aunt Lia would have her head...but then Aunt Lia hated her now anyway. "Uncle Aron isn't Yehudit's father. He loves her like his own, but...she's not."

Sileas squirmed uncomfortably. "No one knows. Aunt Lia was attacked by a group of men outside the Black Raven when it was still open. Galina used the tavern as her headquarters. It could have been any one of those men. Uncle Aron adores her. It will kill him if we discover she is indeed a demon."

"Whoah... Is that why your Aunt has always been strangely protective of Yehudit?" That family had some serious issues, and this explained some of it. "So they don't know about this demon thing? Yehudit doesn't know?"

Sileas snuggled against him, leaning her head against his shoulder.  "I don't know. Bai is going to look in the books for any answers to that while we are looking for how to stop the mermen. Her rages are getting worse, and I'm not ashamed to say I'm frightened by the prospect of having to face a demon. Galina was bad enough, and she was just a follower."

"You heard her when we left...I go where you go. I've begged and implored for time to myself. The only reason I had time to myself when I was...hiding...was because I kept my door locked and wouldn't answer it.

"That is a very sticky situation. From what I understand, it wasn't due to any action, but when her husband's brother overthrew the throne, she was declared a danger. One would think after all this time, the King would feel secure on the throne, but obviously not. Do you even have the authority to intervene?" Sileas wondered out loud.

Sileas could feel the locket containing Althea growing warm against her flesh. It all made sense now why Yehudit wanted the locket off of Sileas. So many things made sense now, as much as it hurt Sileas' heart to know such things about her best friend. "Yehudit. I...we..." she had no idea what to say, since she didn't have any clue what, if anything, Yehudit had heard. And how on earth she had managed to get up all those stairs.

"Oh, Yehudit," Sileas' eyes welled with fresh tears. "Bai will find a way to help you...I'll find a way. There must be a way if you are willing to fight against it," Sileas vowed.

Yehudit shook her head. "I'm a demon, everything about me is wrong."

"There is good in you too, I've seen it. There wasn't only one person involved in this." Sileas's heart hurt. She looked toward Wulfsen. She couldn't leave Yehudit when she was in this state, but she wanted to be there to have his back. Either way, she would be overcome with worry.

"I killed a man... He could have been taken to the guard but I killed him. I was so angry." Yehudit said. "Rage. And they're getting worse."

"If you were fully demon, you would have no conscience. You would not care if you killed someone or not. Let me  and Bai try to find a way to put an end to the demon without costing us you." As aggravating as Yehudit could be, Sileas couldn't imagine her life without her best friend in it.

"We didn't know what was causing it before. Now we do," Sileas exclaimed. "It's hard to stop something that you don't know the cause of. We can bring a priest back with us, even."

"I'll still be a demon." Yehudit drew one knee to her chest, the leg with the bad ankle hurt too much to move, and hugged her leg. "I never should have been born."

Sileas glowered. "Another one who thinks a parent isn't a parent if they weren't part of the birth process. Anyone can sire a child. It takes someone very special to a be a Papa. Uncle Aron loves you to the ends of the earth."

"You just told Wulfsen that what happened to her is why she's like that with me. Parents are supposed to be overprotective of their youngest children, not the firstborn." Yehudit said. "She despises me, she overcompensates for it by being overprotective of me."

"Yes, I said that's why she's overprotective. And you have that backwards. I've seen it with Aunt Aislyn...she's more protective and stricter with Lek and Millie but let's Kady and the smaller ones run wild."

"Either way I'll be wracked with worry, but I probably should stay," Sileas said softly. She got to her feet and wrapped her arms around him. "You tell Xavier if you come back with one hair on your head injured, I will hold him personally responsible. And there will be no where he can hide."

Wulfsen nodded and started down the stairs. He wondered why Yehudit felt heavier to carry then Sileas. She was smaller than Sileas.

"Sileas?" Wulfsen called hopefully when he reached the top of the tower. His heart sank. She was not there. He doubted that she went back to the feast but he did not know where else she could have gone.
