A knock sounded on the door and Luna answered.
“I want to talk with Becca.”
Luna turned to her master. She was on her bed, kusoma a book of spells. Luna gave a sharp whistle and Becca started. She looked up at her guardian, then past her.
“Robin! Let him in Luna.”
Luna did as directed, ushering the boy in. Becca sat up and smiled as Robin came towards her. Luna looked wary as she closed the door, locking it.
“It's okay Luna. Robin is my boyfriend.”
Luna nodded her head in understanding and went into a room just off of Becca's kitanda chambers. Becca stood as Robin came toward her and she willingly went into his embrace. He brought a kiss to her lips, a strong and passionate kiss.
“I missed you,” he muttered when they pulled away.
“I missed you. But I'm okay.”
“I'm sorry. About the other day. Seeing wewe walking around this place freely was a little...whelming. And I wasn't sure what to say. About anything.”
“It's okay. I wasn't expecting wewe guys at all. But I'm glad it was you.”
“Hmm...did we startle you?”
“A little. Since wewe didn't know about this place, wewe kinda sent out a kingdom wide alert.”
“No big deal. It was a nice surprise.”
“Hmm....Erin's words. Did they make you...?”
“Weak? Yeah. And I really hope it doesn't happen again. Because I was feeling so tired. I couldn't get out of kitanda for a day. And before wewe say sorry, it wasn't you. It was Erin.”
“Now. Why did wewe all of a sudden want to see me?”
“I wanted to make sure we, wewe and I that is, were on solid ground.”
“Yeah. And don't worry about a thing.”
“Um...Luna told us some details of your past. I never knew wewe had it so bad.”
Becca sighed and went back to her bed, sitting on the side.
“I never wanted wewe guys to know. It was just another thing that made me weak. Another thing wewe had to worry about. I didn't want that. So I never told you.”
“But wewe trust me right?”
“Yes. I trust all of you. But my moyo isn't ready to release all I know. It needs time.”
Becca smiled at him. She patted the kitanda inayofuata to her and Robin took the spot se offered him.
“Are wewe ready to go home?”
“Home? Robin...I can't.”
“What? Why not?”
“I just can't!”
“Tell me why.”
Becca bit her lip. Tears threatened to flow over her eyes and she looked down.
“Because I just found my mother.”
