Mandy couldn't say how long they hid inside the villa's Sanctuary.
It seemed forever.
When she missed the sunlight, she only dared to go out in the inner courtyard for less than five minutes.
Nightmares hunted her nights. And the villa seemed anxious to reveal all the things that happened there long ago.
Anyway, she managed to keep them at bay drawing with barely-controlled frenzy.
If she could put down on paper what was in her head, she could loosen that pressure a bit.
She spent a lot of time inside the Animus with Desmond.
She knew that sometimes they overdid it, but the threat that Minerva something talked about was straining everyone's nerves.
After watching how Ezio and Amelia took over Roma little by little, she wondered if she could fulfill such a duty..
Then, she followed Amelia climbing up to the papal residence.
She wanted to get the Apple back and kill Cesare and his dreadful father in one shot.
She got on a thick wooden beam, unseen in the shadows on the ceiling.
