Siblings, now that was a topic of conversation Lily could understand, and she brightened with a smile. "Oh, my brothers are exactly the same. Especially because I'm the baby of the family, there was even a time when if I was out of their sight for longer than ten minutes, they would freak out." And hadn't that been a fun few months. She loved Jamie and Al, but wow, they could be intensely overprotective. "Brothers and my cousins, for that matter. Big family, love them but they can be a headache!"
Oh, but then the tough question was asked and Lily wasn't sure how to phrase that particular answer. The why part. She wasn't sure how to explain things without terrifying the poor girl.
"Um," she stalled for time, looking awkward. "Well, there's sort of a war going on. Between good and evil. And the Seal beings people here to be part of that war. And it sucks, it really does. I don't know if you've heard of things like Lucifer and demons and stuff, but that's who we're fighting. Trying to save the world."
