Falling Feathers Chapter 24
Chapter Twenty-Four: Innocent Death
Helena grinned and laughed as she knocked a weapon from a Legion member's hands and twirled her red blade between her fingers.
"Too slow!" she chuckled kicking his legs out from under him and smashing him over the head with the flat surface of her sword. Her young attacker, looking to be only about fifteen or so, was knocked unconscious and Helena quickly grabbed him by the feet and dragged him to the side of the alley where four others were lined up, also knocked out.
"Why are there so many of us," Karsh groaned looking above his head to see a few other meisters and weapons sprint by either chasing or running from Legion.
"Come on!" Helena said running on but Karsh grabbed her by the arm.
"Go home!" he shouted, "That's five out of hundreds! You and the baby are going to get hurt!"
Helena pouted but knew he was right so threw her hood up and began to walk back, still cautious and glancing around corners as Karsh stood motionless

"Stay here," Karsh said sliding out the front door and onto the stone steps above the streets.
"I'm coming too," Helena said carefully stepping out behind him and shutting the door.
Karsh turned around and pushed her back inside, "No, no, no. You stay here."
"I'm not letting you go out in the streets on your own with Legion the way it is," she said walking right back out.
"I don't need you, Crovix went to get Lord Death, Sterling and Kris went to get Maka and Soul, and I'm going to get Black*Star and his children. Just stay."
"No, we're a team right?"
"We're a team, but the baby is not part of the team. I don't need you to protect me, I need you to protect the baby."
"Don't worry! I will," she grinned following him down the stairs.
"You're going to get hurt and I won't let that happen!" Karsh scowled pushing her away.
"You just can't trust me with anything, can you?!"
"No! No, I can't because you're so sporadic!"
Helena waited at the to

Crovix nodded and smiled as Sterling bit his tongue and tried again to play the tabbed solo of a song she was trying to teach him on the guitar. She laughed as he plucked the wrong note and hung his head comically. His hands hung off the body of the guitar in a defeated fashion and he looked up at her with a hopeless smile.
"No, no, it's fine, just try again," she assured pointing to different places on the guitar to indicate what to play.
Sterling tried again and plucked the first four notes correctly before his fingers became twisted and he lost his place. He stared at the strings for a moment as if carefully examining where to go from there but gave up and looked to her for guidance.
"Try again," she repeated patting him on the shoulder, "On the B string nine, eleven three times, then eleven on the G string, then go back to B and play nine and eleven three more times, then nine then eleven."

Stranger LoveI am not the sunlit wing-print
splayed out on the bedroom wall.
I am not the dark mass forming
in a corner of an airless hall.
I am not the viscous vengeance
where you sink your spinning wheels.
I am not the leaky bucket
hung up on your wishing well.
You are not my soul mate missing
wandering a winter's night.
You are not the sound of angels
singing by a candle's light.
You are not the rasp of fingers
fumbling with a hasp of steel.
You are not the tattered towel
soaking up the things I feel.
I am the oblivious child,
dancing where the wildflowers are.
You are my unwitting captive
lighting up a jelly jar.
