How It Began Epilogue - To Fall Back TogetherLooking at the casket of her father and Sarah was strangly justifying. Ann looked happy. She finally had revenge for what Sarah had done a hundred and fifty-eight years ago. It was odd, how humans made contracts to obtain revenge, but it was the other way around that day.
Perhaps it wasn't, since Naomi had ridden herself of someone she seemed to have hated.
As they walked back, Naomi looked at her maid and took her hand.
"What will you do now, Ann?" Naomi sniffed.
"That's a silly question. I'll continue serving you." Ann ruffled her hair.
"Is that what you really want?" Naomi ducked her head.
"What are you implying, pet?" Naomi just clenched Ann's hand tighter in her own.
"I finished whatever I needed to accomplish. You can't have my soul because I'm a half-breed. You got what you wanted. Why haven't you left yet?"

And, I've had someone to rely on, and she's not even related to me! Yet the you're related to me, and you don't care at all!"
"That's not true! Never, when I got the scar from Sarah or Ann, did you ask or care! You don't care, you don't, you don't, you don't!" By t

"What?" Sarah looked slightly amused.
"Ann and Naomi, they, they just..." He trailed off, unable to describe his thoughts.
"Seem suspicious, my lord?"
"Especially Ann. I thought it was odd when Naomi dragged her into the shop, telling me that she was going to be serving her - no charge. Do not misunderstand me, she does good work, but she seems...off." He groaned. "It's like, she's a demon or something."
"My lord, excuse me, but you just noticed?" Sarah snorted. "Shouldn't you be able to tell the best, since you are one?" His eyes flared, briefly becoming a striking yellow. Sarah waved this off.
