Thankfully, Mia seemed to understand. Amadea listened as she talked about them, putting into words Scarlett's side of the story. Amadea wanted to yell and say there was no excuse for how Scarlett treated Amadea, but at the same time, the more rational side of Amadea was telling her that it was okay. She should listen to this side of the story. Hurt people hurt people, she remembered her mother telling her once. It wasn't as if she deserved the bullying, but Scarlett must be hurting so much that she had to inflict pain on someone else to make herself feel better. To be honest, Amadea kind of felt bad for her.
"Don't apologize," Amadea said. "It isn't your fault." It wasn't anyone's fault except for Scarlett and Kate's. They were the ones responsible for their own actions and they were the ones who had decided to make Amadea's life miserable.
Jealous?!" Amadea exclaimed incredulously. "There's not much to be jealous of..." She trailed off in thought. No, Scarlett couldn't be jealous of her. Scarlett had everything she wanted, and if she didn't have it, she could always just ask for it and get it. Why would Scarlett be jealous of her? She was living a strictly middle-class life where she had to work for everything she got, it didn't just get handed to her on a silver platter.
Amadea wondered where the girls were now. Probably back in London, tormenting some other poor girl that didn't deserve it. Or maybe they were witches too. Amadea didn't know, and frankly, she didn't care. She just wanted them to stay far away from her. "Do you keep in touch at all?" Amadea asked.
A human. Being.
