Taking the hardest step: asking for help
At moments like this, Dyna wished for a bit less understanding and freedom, and more of the clear knowledge of what was expected of her that she’d had growing up. Yes, she’d chafed under all the rules, especially after she met Hildar.
But she’d had fairly easy choices then as well. Do what she should, or accept the consequences of refusing. Which generally resulted in her doing what she should have in the first place.
All the while, she got precious little practice in deciding for herself without considering whether rebellion or even protest was worth it.
“Since you brought me here,” she said, “you must trust this woman’s abilities. So I shall at least hear what she has to say.”
Berga lowered her head in the closest thing to a bow she’d offered as they walked.
“As you like. I’ll accompany you for introductions, then follow your wishes about whether you’d prefer me to stay or go.”
Berga took several steps before Dyna got her own feet moving.
