Lys: Home

Aithne felt very stupid. She probably was. Because what she heard didn't seem possible, and yet it was being offered.

"I don't know, I don't know! All I know is that I want home, and the way to Eire has been shut to me. I think perhaps I might find home in your Lord's house, if he would have me. And I think, perhaps, even if he did not I would be content to simply serve there."

The tears would not stop coming, no matter how hard she tried to keep them back. She rubbed her face fiercely. She was supposed to be the strong one right now! She wasn't allowed to fall apart like this. "I will come with you however I can." she said, quietly. "Either to Home or to a new household."
