It was more than overwhelming to say the least. Reagans mind was so wrapped up in trying to keep up with this whole ordeal that she almost lost sight of reality. The truth was, she was more scared now in life then she ever was but at the same time, she never felt stronger. Ryan brought out a confidence in her that she couldn't fully understand yet. Ms Joyce was kind and seemed willing to help but she could tell by the sound of her voice and the tone at which she studied Reagan, she was weary of her. Nikki had done so much damage to Ryan and his family and Reagan understood that. It made her uncomfortable when people warned and pleaded with her to not hurt Ryan as Nikki had. In fact, it almost felt insulting that anyone would compare her to the monster that nearly destroyed the man she loved. She tried to shrug it off as she listened, knowing full well that everyone just had good intentions when it came to Ryan.
When the subject of bank accounts came up, she barely got to open her mouth when Bonnie walked over with a folder stating that Ryan's money was hers too. She shifted in her seat a little as the whole subject became unreasonably uncomfortable. She tried to protest but Joyce and Bonnie didn't give her a chance. Besides, she knew that no matter how hard she protested, Ryan would ultimately keep her name on his accounts anyway. She sighed softly to herself and decided it was best to let it be even if she knew deep down she would never touch his money. It really wasn't hers to touch. He was the one who had saved all that money and earned it, not her. She did have her own money from the shops that she worked at but with her business going down since the attack, it was likely that most of her money would be gone because of all the damages that happened to the buildings that she was paying rent for. She shook her head, not wanting to have to think about that.
After the meeting with Ms Joyce was over, she stood up and smiled a little and thanked the woman before walking out with Bonnie. She kept her mouth shut as Bonnie explained why everyone was so on edge with her and how Nikki had treated Ryan and his family. She shook her head, not wanting to ever think about that horrible woman again. Her name alone caused her skin to became lava hot. If she wasn't dead already, Reagan probably would've killed her herself if she had the chance. She looked over at Bonnie and nodded. "I know everyone cares for the Blackwoods, especially Ryan. I know that everyone is going to be suspicious of me at first but I'm not here to ruin him by any means. I know that being with Ryan means a lot of struggles but I don't care about that. He's the only man I've ever saw myself being with." she said honestly as she continued to walk with Bonnie.
As she got into the elevator, she allowed her mind to wander for a moment again. She wasn't sure exactly where they were going but she had a good feeling that she wasn't finished there. Her stomach was in knots at this point and all she wanted to do was go back to bed. It would've been a lot to take it for anyone but she was surprisingly taking it better than she even thought. Perhaps it was because she had seen Ryan earlier that helped or maybe it was knowing that she wasn't alone and that there were others who were scared about their new found powers, too. She stretched her neck out a bit and tried to wake herself up. Her skin was getting warmer and it only made her more tired.
"So, where do I have to go to next?" she asked.
