Tu's Story Part 5 What Next ?

Page 1 of 5

 The revelations of the night before had removed a weight from her mind that had been gathering mass like a rain cloud over the last few days. The pristine dawn skies & the cooling freshness of the morning air reflected Tu's new, clear state of mind..

After a wander around her homestead, she entered into the kitchen of her childhood home, to find it full of the voices of three generations of her family, all of which stopped talking as she came in.

'Oh no', thought Tu,' Not more secrets!'

But the little flame of fear flickered out again as the conversation immediately began again & expanded to include her.

Soon Saorsa said, 'We have been discussing the Tilii you found.

Tu reached for her waist to check for it& looked up to see Saorsa handing it to her still covered in the cloth Tu had wrapped it in.

'The thing is', Saorsa continued, 'We would really like to take it back with us tomorrow.

'Oh that's fine,' said Tu & she meant it.

'However', continued Saorsa,' we also feel that it should stay with you'.

'Well', replied Tu,' That's fine too,' She was happy with either option,' I would look after it'.

Saorsa looked warmly at Tu 'We were actually wondering how you would think & feel about returning with us & staying for a while. You can help us in the work with the Tilii & of course you are always welcome to leave whenever you want.

Tu looked to her parents Ebe & & then to her grandparents Rebel & Bob, they all seemed at ease with the idea. If she could have read their thoughts, she would have seen that they were actually relieved at the idea. Unnerved by the Levski event & the broader implications, they each felt she would be safer off the plot for a while, and Saorsa & Sisu were certainly that - no-one knew where the two called home or if they did they kept it to themselves. They all held their silence however, in respect of Tu's own decision-making process.

'Yep', smiled Tu, 'That's fine too', she said, & a little wave of excitement & mystery swelled up in her heart as she said it.
