Sileas ignored Questa as she opened the door to the keep.

Re: The Keep- The Garden Area
Fresh air and sunlight were wonderful things. For so long Onyi and then Mazi kept Ila chained and locked in that house with shuttered windows. The few times she was outside the mermen still smothered her, holding her arm or arms, twisting it painfully when they even thought she was trying to escape, tying her up when he slept. Ila could not describe how great it was to be free.
Ila strolled through the garden during the brief break she was allowing herself. She had been keeping herself busy working hard this past week. She wanted to be useful, and not like she was at the Crimson Dove. She knew women there who had left but couldn't find anything else, and wound up back at the Dove. While recovering in the healing room Ila made up her mind that she would die before going back to that, even if it meant killing herself. She had already figured out how, there was a tower she was able to go up. All she would have to do is jump off and it would all be over, no one could touch her.
She was careful to keep her red dove tattoo covered, especially when around the knights. They all behaved around her but she had met too many men in uniforms, even knights, at the Crimson Dove.
Ila helped in the kitchen a little, but felt awkward around Aislyn Gerthrim. She suspected that Mrs Gerthrim resented her, they didn't exactly meet under the best circumstances and Ila had been with Aislyn's fake husband for months. Ila spent most of her days cleaning rooms, scrubbing floors... She learned a lot about keeping house while being chained to a stove. She helped a little in the garden but she knew little about growing food, all she could do was plant a few seeds when told how far apart to plant them and how deep. There was weeding to do but Ila could not tell the difference between a good plant and a weed. So when Ila went out to the garden she mostly walked around the overgrown flower garden. It was too unkept to make her think too much about the garden back at her family's home, or the garden she was with Jago in, where he let her life be ruined.
Ila was thinking about him. She shook her head. Jago would never have her again so he was not worth thinking about. If he was going to creep into her thoughts Ila had to work to get him out. Ila turned back to the keep. There was probably something to do in the kitchen.

Re: The Keep- The Garden Area
Millie sat on a bench, nestled deep in the garden. On the seat next to her was a variety of wildflowers, tall grass blades and assorted weeds. Anger darkened her eyes as she silently shredded a flower.

Millie appeared to be shredding a flower. That was not a good sign. Difyr cleared her throat.

Re: The Keep- The Garden Area
It took a moment or two for the sound to reach Millie's mind. She lifted her head, dropping the beheaded stem at the same time. "Oh, hi Difyr."

"I'm fine. Just...angry. I'm angry about all the evil in the world and I'm angry that no one can seem to end Jack's reign of terror. Everyone just lets him walk away."

"Hopefully he won't be walking for much longer. Pinja is showing Aalyssa and some knights where she thinks Jack will be." Difyr said.

"He won't give up. And if he has another woman, he'll threaten to take her life. I know how he operates. Uncle Shawn just barely got me away from him that day. No matter what the knights do, whatever woman he's got his clutches on, she will probably end up dead. Wait. Did you say Pinja went after him?"

Difyr nodded. "She wanted me to tell you goodbye, and to thank you for being her friend. She also hope Lek gets back all right."

"She's giving up then?" Millie sighed. "But I didn't get a chance to say goodbye." Millie picked up one of the flowers and crushed it in her fist."

"Pinja was hoping to get there before he could hurt another girl." Difyr said. "She insisted that she was the only one who could show the way to the cabin."

Millie lowered her head and watched the petals fall from the crushed flower. Her shoulders slumped.

Difyr put an arm over Millie's shoulders. "We tried to make her calm down and stay... But it's the first time that's she has wanted to do something besides drink wine."

"I understand why she did it," Millie said quietly. She closed her eyes, locking her own emotions away. Like she always had. Like she always would.

"I'm sorry." Difyr said. "If you hadn't helped her she probably would have died days ago."

Re: The Keep- The Garden Area
"I'm glad I was able to be of some small help. I wish I could have convinced her to not give up, but I guess the damage Jack caused was far greater than what my friendship offered." Millie got to her feet. "I'll get my sewing things out of your way in the healing room."

"You can stay if you want." Difyr said. "Pinja... might come back." Pinja was so weak Difyr doubted she would survive the trip.

Millie shook her head. "No, it's all right. I was there for Pinja and you can use the space. I wouldn't want to be underfoot."

Re: The Keep- The Garden Area
Millie shrugged. "I guess so, if I can't find my own room. Her room is rather crowded right now too. I don't want to be in anyone's way."

"You don't have to get used to it." Difyr wished she had been able to get Pinja to stay.

Re: The Keep- The Garden Area
"Sure I do. Until Pinja, no one willingly wanted to spend time with me. I think it's rather telling, how lonely I felt in  family with over twenty cousins." Millie scoffed. "Pinja probably only stayed because she was afraid of running into Jack if she went out. She started walking back to the keep, then she paused. "Some people were simply created to be alone in the world."
