"Do you think you could help Meg?" he asked quietly, but it was a little like he was pleading.
"I'll try," I say back, walking up to her and sitting beside her. After watching her lay silently, I said a small," Hello," she gasped and looked to me.
"Hi," she whispered back feebly.
"How are you?" I asked her.
"Fine..." I sighed. Lie.
"May I see your necklace?" I asked her quietly, immediately she held it tightly to her chest.
"Why?!" she asked harshly.
"Please may I see your necklace?" I echoed. She hesitated, then gently took it off of her thin neck, and dropped it into my hands,
"Thank you," I replied, examining it carefully. I looked up at Mr.Bible. He nodded. "Your names Meggie right?" she lifted her head and nodded twice. "I'm Amelia. I think you might need my help."
