Their hard work? What hard work? Alayna thinks. The only hard work her parents have done for her with her craft is making her despise it sometimes. Even if she isn't up for it, she has to set aside time every day to practice her magic, especially the aspects of it she sucks at. She is, after all, to serve as a reminder of why keeping the Castellanos around is an outstanding idea for the Elders. She didn't tell Rebecca any of this, though. There were some things better kept within the family.
At the mention of the allure of the wellspring's power, Alayna nods her head in agreement. Her control of the elements is already so strong. So with the wellspring, there will probably be nothing she cannot do with her talent.
"Hey, everyone's got stuff that they're good at, so there's no reason to envy me, " The blonde replies, pointing a finger at the scar on her arm, "I don't always get it right either." And that is why she's never felt the need to cover her physical imperfection. Even she needs to remember that it isn't always going to be easy, especially with how often she likes to experiment with the physical world.
In answer to her question about having anything up her sleeve, Alayna deadpans, "If I told you, I would have to kill you." She takes a sip of her lemonade then, avoiding Rebecca's eyes as to not give away her feelings. Truthfully, she doesn't like to talk about the things she tries to do with her magic, as she can be reckless with it.
"I'm not up to anything bad if you're thinking that," she says to be safe.
