She wasn't really sure how long she put it off: a couple of hours... a couple of days. When Helene finally found herself at Kai's door, she was surprised she'd made it that far. And she probably only knocked because she knew it would have been childish to turn back. Immature. She was a new woman now.
A little lonely, maybe... but surviving.
She didn't really pay attention to whether or not he responded to her knocking, so Helene knocked a second time. It would be good to talk to Kai. It was always good to talk to Kai.
