She was near the top of the stairs when she remembered that she wanted to ask her mother where to put the book overnight. As she reached the bottom step, she hesitated, hearing a despairing tone in her mother’s voice from behind the closed study door. Very quietly, she moved in closer.
“I can’t believe this is happening,” her mother said in a low voice. “She’s so young, Thomas! I know this is bigger than us and the timing is as it should be – but she’s only twelve!”
I’m nearly thirteen, thought Willow.
“I know,” she heard her father say. “But if anyone can do it, she can. She’s smart and she’s got a good head on her shoulders. We always knew it was a strong possibility that she’d Awaken, and while it feels too soon for us, the Ancients wouldn’t have been able to Awaken her if she wasn’t ready or capable. She just needs to grow up a little, and this will no doubt speed things up.”
Yay, Dad! Willow’s grip on the book tightened.
“You’re right, I know,” her mother continued in that low voice, and Willow had to strain to hear. “It’s just… this is such a huge thing for anyone to take on. I’m finding it hard to understand why they would choose her at this age.”
Thomas shrugged. “Something’s happened out there for the Protocols to change. We’ll just have to see how it plays out.”
Willow turned as quietly as she could, praying the floorboards wouldn’t creak, and tiptoed back towards the stairs. Her question about where to store the Book would have to wait until dinner. With the TriGamon clutched to her chest, she climbed the stairs and wondered what huge thing could be going on out there in the Universe for her to have been Awakened right now.
