Edie was momentarily dizzy as she stood up, the blood rushing through her head suddenly. But she regained her balance quickly and followed Leila to the tree that her girlfriend led her to. “Are we doing this… whatever we’re doing,” she giggled, “to all the trees?”
Leila shook her head, pulling herself down again, and Edith down with her. “No, only certain trees are being attacked. It affects the whole orchard, of course, but it’s more important to protect them at the source.”
“They’re being attacked? Really? Who would attack trees?”
“My enemies,” Leila said shortly.
