Feeling weak was something that Willow always hated. It felt that lately it was all she was feeling. Like many other celestials she was still haunted by her past. All the lost years. Something that would never go away. It took her a long while after to get better to go about day to day and not be panicked by ordinary things. It didn’t help matters with her brother Elias taking off when she needed him most. Leaving her to find her own way and place in the modern world. Almost starting afresh in a way. Something that many other celestials like herself had to do. Some of them have taken longer than others to adapt. Willow tried to keep up to speed and to date with how things are now. Whether it be with fashion or technology. Any way to fit in so she no longer looked like an outsider looking in. Even finding herself taking a job trying to get some normality in her life thinking it would help her to heal. Deep down she was still broken, haunted by her past. Needing to find some way to push past and let her anger out. Willow always hated feeling weak that she needed someone to look after her whilst she didn’t want it to be like that. Wanting to be able to protect herself to be ready if anyone was to go against her. Sure she was spending hours in the mirror room at the celestial castle that was made and designed to learn to use their celestial energy. Willow was looking for another way wanting to not only just rely on her celestial power to help her. Wanting to protect herself the old fashioned way through hand held combat. Knowing she would be no state of mind at the moment to look for weapons as a form of protection.
It has always been something she’d never favoured but a skill that she knew but never used. Having her own reasons even if now would be the time she’d be needing it most. For the last few weeks, she has been trying to do her own research. Looking for someone who would be suitable to train her for what she was looking for. Finding out the city was full of different personal trainers but not many for what she was wanting. Figuring it out that it may be best if she looked for a trainer who was of the supernatural kind rather than human. Just in case her celestial energy went out of hand and something was to happen. Willow has always been the more cautious one out of her and Elias, thinking through everything beforehand. With weeks spent looking Willow came across a name that she’d seen and floating about from others of a trainer here in the city who was a valkyr. Thinking that he was her best bet she had for finding someone who filled all the boxes she was looking for. Today was one of her days off away from the book shop. The day when she gathered the courage to go and seek Eirik Tostain out.
Leaving the comfort of the castle to go to unknown grounds looking for help from the opposite species. Willow took a chance of instead of going to Eirik’s weapons shop and go to the training grounds within the Valkyr comfinds. While looking for the training side rather the weaponry side. Hoping she was right she soon arrived at the Valkyr comfinds. Luckily she didn’t run into any Valkyr’s on the way slipping past people till she found her way to what must be the training room. Choosing the stay at doorway almost having second thoughts thinking maybe she should turn back thinking she wasn’t ready. Or was it all too late?
Eirik felt like his entire life had flashed before his eyes; as the bond took place. It was overwhelming to say the least, but at last he had his memories come back to him. So something good came out of it at least. As Willow confirmed that it really was her, it felt like a weight had been lifted off of his shoulders. Willow. His little star. She really was in front of him, it wasn’t a dream, like he thought it was.
“You could have said something. I thought I was going insane trying to put the pieces together.” It would have saved him valuable moments of his sanity. But he was more than relieved, that now he knew the truth. He couldn’t help himself, pulling Willow against his broad chest, his arms wrapped around her in a tight hug. Needing to hold her close for a few moments. Eirik couldn’t help but feel more over-protective over Willow, now that he knew what had went on and why she ended up missing.
After a few moments, of holding her close. The Valkyr released his grip around her. Listening to her, he couldn’t help but frown as she told him, about what had happened with the Ailwards. His jaw kept twitching. Making him angry. “If I ever see one of them, I swear...they’ll end up running for the hills.” He hissed through his teeth. Yes. It fueled his anger, hearing what had happened and the fact that someone dared to tamper with his memories. Eirik wasn’t scared to tussle with them, if he had to. Especially if it would be to defend Willow...his bond and the girl, that he had cared for more deeply than he could put into words.
“I am aware, how close you and your brother have always been. But it still hurt seeing you go.” Eirik admitted, with a slight sigh. He didn’t want to be a bad friend in the past, by asking her to stay. So he let her go. “I hope, that you and Eli have been keeping well after everything that has happened to you both.” Hoping that they had the time to heal from it all. But one thing was for sure now. He would protect her, better than he had in the past. If he could help it, of course. It was more than good to see her again. Finding old feelings stirring within him again. "I am just glad, that you're here." he told her, with a smile.
