Apollos sat in front of me, brushing his soft brown locks from his perfect eyes as he sighs, “Laelia, you must do better next time if you expect me to keep sending you in like this.”
I could only disappointedly look down. How could I say anything when he was risking everything just to help me? “I know, I know Apollos. I was so close to finding her I just... I just got caught up.” His brow furrowed, I could see I wasn’t helping my case.
“You lived on earth for centuries, you’ve seen the worst of humanity and yet NOW is when you decide to be a savior?” He stands up and plants his hands on the plain white desk. “You know they don’t care about us, they have NEVER cared about us. But her? She has always cared about you even when the rest of us were ready to throw you out, let you die.”
He trailed on as he started pacing. “This is on you. You wanted to find her, you wanted to prove yourself.” Before I could say anything, he cut me off to add his last and final blow. “I’m sending you in one last time, if you can’t come back with her, don’t come back at all.”
