Decent Essays
Efie and Colina are half-sisters. The girls were born to Fenella, a strikingly beautiful woman. Fenella was married to Wallace, Laird of Inverness and the father of Efie. He fell ill one day and withered in a week due to a mysterious disease. The Lair was soon succeeded by Derek, Wallace’s younger brother. Love blossomed between Fenella and Derek, something which did not come as a surprise to the members of the clan. Soon their union bore Fenella another daughter whom she named Colina. But 3 years after Colina’s birth, Derek was plagued with the same illness Wallace suffered from and passed away.
