"Ah, yes, let's." Willow said, slowly retreating back into his mind. This new information changed his perspective on Heo. He was vulnerable. He was kind. He was currently hurting. Willow tucked these things away as a thin smile found its way onto his lips. A last thought had wormed into his mind and planted itself there.
Lillian nodded and smiled. “Her magic is only as powerful as the deal she makes.” Lillian replied. “Her mother is the same. She needs to make a deal with someone in order to really hurt you. This was only a visit over to get information. Or to scare someone into making a deal with her.” Lillian explained. She then realized the the child of Mothel Gothel wouldn’t know this stuff and paled slightly. “At least, that’s what Camila told me.” She added quickly.
Camila nodded and smiled. “Yeah, it just takes a lot for me to stand up to her. She specializes in mind magic, so she’s good at messing with my head. I had to focus on protecting myself just as much as Malefor while focusing on sending her back.” Camila explained.
Lillian knew that once this ball ended she would lose her sight. She couldn’t be near him when he called it to an end. “I’m not sure. It’s unlikely her mother would attack immediately... however the ball might be awkward after that... I suppose it would be your decision, bu5 perhaps you should ask Camila.” Lillian replied.
"I agree." Camila replied, deciding if she didn't have the energy to carry out the plan, it would be unwise to get the staff that day. They still had two weeks, so there was time.
Lillian heard these words and headed to her room, allowing her mind to go over and process her feelings. She felt giddy all over as she remembered her dance with Malefor. It was the first time she ever looked into somebody's eyes, and it was more magical than any spell she could ever cast. She let out a noise of giddiness and excitement once she closed her door and began to spin around before landing on the bed. Perhaps she should make more deals with Camila for more days like this... no... That would be a strain on her friend. Come to think of it, Camila may have been able to sense that the portal was opening before it even opened and it would have taken a lot less stress to close it had she not been busy focusing on giving Lillian sight above other things. Lillian felt a bit guilty over this. Also, she couldn't keep lying to Malefor forever. Eventually, the truth would come out, and he would see her as a threat. "I'm not a villain kid or hero kid. I don't see the point in deviding people into hero's and villains. There's no such thing as a good person or an evil person, for everyone is a mix of both. It's just the question if you're focusing on what you want, or if you're focusing on what you need. So what do I need? I need to stop lying, but I want Malefor to trust me... I need to make sure there are resources available to everyone when they are needed, but I want to be able to see. I will tell Malefor myself, after all of this is over. It may hurt, but it's something I need to do." Lillian told herself as white covered her eyes and she went blind.
Heo nodded and opened the doors to find a panicked Malefor next to a worried Wolfe helping up a weakened Camila, surrounded by a stunned crowd and no sign of Lillian. "I leave for two minutes." Heo chuckled, shaking his head.
"My Mum came over for a cup of tea." Camila replied with a chuckle. Heo sighed and shook his head. "I'm assuming she wasn't here to give us an allowance or tell us to do our homework." Heo chuckled. "Nah, she wanted me to go to my room. I sent her to her own instead." Camila replied before the two burst into laughter.
