"Oh that must be just amazing!" she said with a wide grin. "I have enough trouble with just Alex and he's only little! And a bit psychic. It's so freaky!" Gods, Alex, she missed him then, her little brother, Keller, her blood sister, her Mom, all of them. But they wouldn't miss her, that's what Lily had said and she seemed to know what she was talking about. It made a huge difference all round. "Wouldn't change them for the world though would you, not any of them."
A war. Iliana's face fell just for a second before returning to the bubbly grin of a moment ago.
"Well. Then that's what I'm here to do. I'm supposed to help. I'm a witch, I can call on nature, on air, on my ancestors, I can be useful Lily. And maybe if I am when the fight comes back home I'll be more trained. I'll be more ready, what do you think?"
It was the only thing, the only reason, that made even the slightest bit of sense to the young girl. She needed a reason to be here in this strange place and away from her family and friends, away from Daybreak. "I'll do what I can to help you all save this world and then I'll find the other Wil...I'll find my friends and save mine."
Keller's voice in her ear again yelling at her, telling her no matter how nice they were don't tell them you're a WIld Power. They'll use it, hurt you, that was how she expected it to be. If you weren't Daybreak she wouldn't trust you.
And on that, Iliana would disagree but maybe she was right about telling the truth. The Wild Power would stay hidden. For now at least, she could just be a witch, not even a Harman or the Witch Child. Just a regular witch.
