Kaylee couldn’t believe the girl’s question to Willow and that Willow was actually considering it. She was angry that there still was something in Willow’s life that she didn’t know of. Then she felt the anger turn to herself and the way she was acting. Willow still didn’t know all about her so why did she expect Willow to tell all about her.
She felt a hand slide into hers and saw Simon. He looked concerned and shook his head.
“Don’t be angry at her, remember she just found out someone she holds dear to her has passed away,” he said. “Part of what she would be feeling is anger at herself.”
“Why would she feel angry?”
“How much time did she spend looking for a way home after that first week?” he asked. “Remember her friend died because she was still looking for Willow, yet Willow was happy here.”
He walked off, leaving Kaylee feeling guilty. She hadn’t thought of that.
