Is that the bus again?

I watch as Meggie tries to comfort Raven. Although that name doesn't seem all that appropriate now.

What had she meant, that I was changing her thoughts? I didn't mean to ...

But maybe the very fact that I was willing her not to remember was changing her mind. Was that possible? After all, it had almost happened five years ago.

I'd been talking to this guy at school that I really liked, willing him to realise that actually he liked me back. And then, just suddenly, he told me that he did. Told me that I mean everything to him.


That really frightened me.

The bus is visible on the horizon. I smile, and my eye colours start to settle, my skin fading to a normal peachy pink. I was wondering how I would get to New York otherwise ...

The End
