Magda was silent for a few seconds when he got there. She looked away, glanced back, and then looked away again. It was hard to start...
"I'm sorry." That was one way to do it. "I've been purposely trying to avoid you because of this; after seeing you fight Zara, I kind of just...didn't want to be put in that position. Even before that, I've just been trying to stay out of your way. Partly because I loathe you for killing Petra, partly because you're fucking scary, and also partly because to an extent, I know you're right. But that doesn't mean you had to embarrass me like that..."
She shook her head and took a breath.
"This has all been...a lot. Do you know what it's like to love someone so much and yet seemingly be the bane of their existence? Everything I did...she despised me for it. I was always wrong or stupid or incompetent. Maybe I was...but I was trying my best to be a good sister. I wanted her to love me the way I loved her, and it was never enough. I knew she loved Astrid, more than me, more than our parents, more than anyone. Watching her sink deeper and deeper into that was painful but...it's what she wanted. She was happy doing it."
"And then you came along, and suddenly she was interested in sleeping with you, and you became this weird obsession right under Astrid's nose. I made her that blade for our birthdays; I spent days, weeks, on it...I moulded it to fit her hand on the hilt and everything. And just like that, she gave it to you...I don't know whether she did it just to spite me or what. I eventually did research on you, asked around...Viola told me that she had helped you drug your ex, and like an idiot I outright believed her, no questions asked."
"I felt certain that you had done the same to Petra. I told her time and time again not to go with you because of this, and she ostracised me further..." She shook her head. "I shouldn't have blackmailed you for the blade, but I was so angry...I felt like it was the one thing I could do to try and show her who really cared about her. But she didn't want to hear it. She forbid me from seeing her in the tower, and then next I heard, you'd killed her."
She stared off to the side, shaking her head.
"I don't want to be friends with you, not even acquaintances. I'm sorry for what I did, but I just don't like you. But at least now you get some sort of explanation."
