I wasn’t supposed to be here. I wasn’t supposed to see her. Yet, she didn’t run. She didn’t vanish. But she watched me with sorrowful green eyes, like she was a prisoner. Her look was pleading, like she wanted me to help her.
But I didn’t know how.
I looked in the points of her ears. I looked in the curved, ebony horns protruding from her long waves of golden hair. I looked in the freckles across her nose. I looked in the dream catcher dangling from one ear.
I looked until I lost myself in the lime pendant hanging about her neck.
