Dora’s heart started beating faster and she could hear her blood rushing, a reaction to the confrontational way Calypso was talking. But she realized it was her own fault. She had literally invited this.
Her face was slowly frowning, readying to defend herself. “I do. All the time. Don’t you think I feel guilty? I had to leave my family to deal with my mess. Who knows what the mob is doing to them now. All I have now are my friends. My best friends. At least they are kind enough to try and make me feel better, instead of trying to make me feel like a burden that’s bringing them into danger.”
"I doubt you’re thinking hard enough, otherwise, you would have figured out that hiding from your problems is not going to solve anything.” Calypso held back a laugh when Eudora mentioned Cassim and Zinnia trying to make her feel better. “I am not your friend, Eudora. I am an older sister, and I’m trying to protect my siblings. I thought you’d understand something like that.”
