Counting Corvids Chapter Thirty-One

Chapter Thirty-One “Unfinished”

 

“You already know my answer” Eldridge smiled at her as he led Willow downstairs. “Willow are you a hundred percent sure that this is what you want?”
“More then anything, I want to fight for what’s right, I want to fight for good” Eldridge beamed this was all he needed and wanted to hear. Just outside there was a commotion that sent Eldridge running into action, Willow followed suit just a bit slower then usual. A demon was attacking Eldridge and his friend. Without hesitation or thought Willow vanquished the demon just in time. She helped Eldridge off of the floor. “That was an upper level how did you do that?”

Eldridge’s voice sounded as though he was in awe. “It’s not the first, I can’t explain, it just sort of happens” Eldridge smiled. “So what’s going to happen now?”
“That my dear is entirely up to you, do you know what’s happening with the baby, I mean do you know, what do you want?”
“Well before everything got messy, well messier, I thought about leaving and having it on my own. I don’t think I could have stayed there as it was.”
“It? You don’t know?”

Willow shook her head, “now I really am in a fork in the road”
“And you don’t know which way to turn?”
“Kind of.”

Willow and Eldridge sat in the library talking about the possible realities that she had seen. Finally she approached the question that had been on her mind for hours since she woke. “So In the dream I saw Oliver the-”
“Man you saved”
“Not well enough, I never heard from him after we escaped, I figured one of the demons killed him, but he was in the dream so I am a little confused.”
“You’re half right, a demon was after him, but I found Oliver just in time, he’s been hiding out since.”

Willow paused in thought, “if he is alive why didn’t he contact me?”
“He wanted to but it wasn’t safe, not with Hunter there.”
“It’s all my fault, I’ve turned so many lives upside down and made so many mistakes.”

“Don’t talk like that, you are forgetting all the good you’ve done” Willow half smiled.

At the dinner table Willow was lost in thought it took a while for her to realise that dinner was over. “Eldridge, I can never thank you enough and you know that, but I need to talk to Oliver, I need to find a way to explain, to see that he’s safe, I am sorry.” Eldridge nodded.
