She felt his arms close around her, the man hugging her as a smile grew on his face. As it did, A smile broke across Sherri’s face, tears of happiness pouring from her eyes as her hands flew around him, hugging him as tightly as she could. She let him speak, not interrupting until he had finished saying what he needed to. She was glad, it seemed he was not mad at her for leaving them. She then began to speak, her voice soft but for of happiness.
“I thought it was your smell Tsui… thank goodness I was correct. I missed you so much brother, I’m sorry for taking off like I did. I hope I didn’t upset you or the others, but I just needed some time away. Anyways, how have you been Tsui? I assume that Miaka and Yoma are off doing stuff for the Gotei, but at least I can spend time you my favorite brother.”
With that she pulled herself away from her brother, smiling up at the red head she had hugged. A soft smile was on her face, and she offered her hand out towards him, tilting her head curiously at him. She just hoped everything would be okay, at least she knew that things would be better for her. She had finally been able to accept that the monster residing within her was something she had to deal with, a part of her that she needed to be able to control. She had come to her answer, and now she knew that she could not run. She would do what she could to help others, she would push herself harder to defend those she cared about, and most of all she would stop blaming herself for the actions she had performed in the past. True, they were things that she did, but blaming herself and beating herself up over it would not undo what she had done. Now she was on a new leaf, a new page, and she wanted to spend the first of that with her family.
