Sabina followed her brother down a long hallway. Ghilliane followed closely behind. The hall seemed endless, but it was probably because she was so nervous. What would tonight hold?
"Sabina!" Ghilliane said. "I will see you later tonight. Good luck, and congratulations!"
Gilliane turned down a different hall while Sabina followed her brother. She asked him what was happening, but his answers were indirect and rather frustrating.
"Now, don't feel obliged to do anything you don't feel comfortable doing. Anything you don't feel ready to do, you can always do it later. Tonight is about you, about becoming something greater and joining this family. We aren't here to judge you."
Volkard smiled over his shoulder at Sabina. She looked anxiously at him. She wasn't sure what was in store for her, but she wasn't sure that she would enjoy it.
"Okay", Volkard squeezed his sister's hand and smiled. "Are you ready?"
