Summary: Music can be as powerful as witchcraft.
Willow walked out of the Gershwin Theater lost in conflicted thoughts. Almost everything about the script itself frustrated her, but the music made her smile and reminded her of the beautiful, wonderful and eventually horrible day when Tara had sung to her.
A rush of guilt hit her, but not her own. Someone in the crowd, nearby, so full of shame that Willow felt bombarded. She didn’t believe in emotional voyeurism, so she threw up a shield, but not before sensing a name and sending out what she hoped was a message of comfort.
Don’t worry, Bryan. It’s all right.
