Follow you down

“It’s crazy when
The thing you love the most is the detriment
Let that sink in”

Two conflicting sides. Two different viewpoints. Both so clearly set against each other, both refusing to bend.
Both so similar in that regard.
Why is it she was always able to see the space in the middle? The grey tones everyone seemed unable to even acknowledge?

“Oh, ’cause I keep diggin’ myself down deeper
I won’t stop ’til I get where you are
I keep running, I keep running, I keep running”

Lysenna’s mouth tightened as her gaze fell upon the two daggers laid on the table looking as out of place as a fine tableware set on the rough old wood surface.
Neither were truly hers, and yet they had both come back for her hands to hold.
She didn’t know what to do with them. She had done what Willow had asked. She had done what needed to be done. She had finally laid her own personal night are to rest. And yet.
Between the spirits, the lionfolk, the town. They all had such narrow views of what any of them would truly accept. What would they do when they realized what she… Who she…
Shaking her head violently, as much to clear the thoughts away as to feel the movement of the cool air upon her face she turned on her heel and strode to the doorway. There the verdant trees and shadows seemed to beckon to her as they always had.

“They say I may be making a mistake
I would’ve followed all the way, no matter how far”

It doesn’t matter. All that mattered was keeping her family safe. And no one, spirit or saint, was ever going to make the decision of who her family was. Circle, blood, childhood friend. They were all her family. Shaking her head in denial of the shadows and their call she walked back to the table currently crowded as her thoughts.

Damn anyone who thought they could get away with telling her what to do. She reached out, gripping the strange hilts and slowly lifted them to eye level. Her eyes glinted sharp as the blades as she brought them to her side and tucked them into her belt pouch. If anyone thought they would stand in her way, well, they were about to find out exactly what she was willing to do to take care of the ones she loved.

“I know when you go down all your darkest roads
I would’ve followed all the way to the graveyard”
