Zane nodded at Lorelei. "I suppose that I'm just not very strong willed. It's hard to fight this curse." Then, as she spoke about Thomas Zane listened, and nodded some more. "Yes, he has to die." Zane said, frowning. "But, that's easier said than done. Many have tried, and many have failed. Miserably. I don't know what it is about him." Zane sighed. This was going to be a potentially losing battle. It would take a joint effort, and what good would that be able to do? He was stuck in the home, she was in his mind. Nobody would ever really understand this situation.
As she talked to him about what this would encompass with Améa, Zane listened carefully. He had to know she would be safe, but as with everything in their family, this was confusing. But, Zane trusted that they would keep him safe. He frowned though whenever she mentioned that they were all unaware he was under the curse. Of course they were, and they would need to continue to be oblivious, as much as it pained him. "She can't know. You need her, and she needs her family. If she were to know, she would do something foolish, and it would in turn hurt her, get her killed, and cause pain to your family." It sucked, but that was life. He would have to figure this one out on his own, and hope that she would understand afterwards if he were to get everything in the open.
When she told him that Thomas would not be able to pry into any of this, he breathed a sigh of relief. The last thing he needed was to give Thomas any more ammunition. When the scene returned with Améa and the triplets, he saw the closeness of her and the one next to her. Then when Lorelei spoke those words, it resonated with him. It hit him hard. Zane's legs gave way in his dreamlike state, and he fell down the wall to his butt, and brought his knees to his chest. The tears began pouring down his face. After a moment, he said, "She's...... my daughter?" Zane looked up at Lorelei. "I almost killed my own daughter?" He began to regain his composure, and the anger flashed across his face. "I'm going to kill Thomas, that son of a bitch."
