That was...strange

I turned to stare at Raven, my mouth open in surprise. "Who was THAT?!" I demanded. "She had no right to be listening!"

Raven shrugged. "Don't worry about her."

"But she said she has the same power I do!"

"Yeah, so?"

"So? That mean's I'm not alone!"

Raven pursed her lips together. "I don't know, Isa."

I sighed and turned back to the window. The barren country was flying by, the sun barely beginning to set in the distance. Raven sighed too, and turned the other way.

Finally I pulled out my notebook and began where I had left off when Raven came by--sketching out the countryside. I had always had a knack for drawing, and it was easy to draw this because the landscape never changed. I carefully drew thin lines on each little blade of grass, humming to myself, so I was surprised when Raven, who was looking over my shoulder, spoke.

"Whoa!" She said. "That's pretty cool."

I shrugged. "It's just a sketch."

She raised her eyebrow at me. "It's so...detailed. How did you get all those little blades of grass in that field?"

I shrugged. "It's just a field, Raven."

"You've got talent, girl." Was all she said. Then we both turned away from eachother again and I put my notebook down, the drawing only half finished.

The End
