When we get downstairs one of Abbie's eyes go's dark blue while the other stays light brown. Worried and about to get killed by Mr Makins. He yells at her for about ten minutes, and then freezes her pay for the next month. Sheesh. When he calms down I ask him the questions I'd been asking Abbie.
"Well, some people say there's another afterlife , and the Creator created the kingdom from there. But no one really knows, and the Creator won't tell anyone, not even Miss Winter. Do your eyes always do that?" he answers.
"Do my eyes always do what?"
"Flash brightly. They're red and orange, by the way."
"I don't know. I'm going to go look for this other afterlife," I say, lighting a small flame in my hand.
"I'm not sure if that's a good idea. No one even kno-" I don't hear what he says. I run out of the hotel, lighting all the street lamps on the way, heading towards the forest Abbie said no one ever goes in.
