"They are." She smiled, nodding shyly, glancing over to where Alcuin indicated. She soon looked back at him though, squeezing his hand lightly.
"Can you... promise you won't tell Scott? About..." She motioned to herself, awkwardly, before clearing her throat. "Only Derek knows, and... I don't want Scott to find out at the moment. Until I know how to tell him, that is, I know he has to know eventually, but... I just need to know I won't hurt him." She hoped he understood what she meant - if he'd loved someone before, she hoped he'd know that sometimes, the kindest thing was to keep things from them. To protect them until you knew how to handle something.
"Just... promise me one other thing." She added, looking Alcuin in the eyes. "... Make Scott happy. Because I can't any more and... and out of anyone, he deserves happiness. That's all I want for him."
