Chapter 3

“Sweetheart I’ll see you in the morning, get some sleep” my mother said

“Good night mumma” I replied going to my chambers.

I entered my chambers,
“Akira what are you doing here?”

He tensed.

“What happened Vic?” I softly asked.

He said affectionately, “Nothing you need to be worried about little sister, I just wanted to come to you before the ceremony, I’m always here for you Tori, no matter what. I love you, this place will always be your home, remember that.”
