Willow started right at the beginning, postponing the more adventurous tales for later.
“My past, the past I remember, is a lot different to what you both are aware of, for me to tell you everything you will have to suspend belief for a while. What I told Mal wasn’t the truth.”
She shifted her position, making herself more comfortable, leaning against Kaylee.
“I grew up in a place called Sunnydale, with my best friends Xander and Jesse. My parents were strict but as I grew up, they became more distant. Finally I would only see them every few days and then they would only ask me about my grades.”
She smiled in memory of Xander and Jesse. Of the “We Hate Cordelia Club.”
“My two friends and I were inseparable, Christmas time was hard for me because I was Jewish, so they made it easier for me.”
“Jewish?” Kaylee asked confused. She knew that there was something different about Willow but she was speaking of strange things.

“It was a religion from the past,” was the only answer Willow could come up with.
