Erik swallowed. He hoped living with Mama worked out because it would be too awkward to have to see Knave again after she turned him town just before he left for Lysander's Estate. Although he thought of Mark as his brother, he didn't consider her to be his sibling even if they were looked after by the same 'Mama'. He had been attracted to her for a long time, but she thought of him as a sibling and refused to be anything different.
