But it isn’t the kind of thing you get used to. ” I look up into the mirror and see the sleepy reflection of my mom, holding the black cat in her arms. I put the athame down on the counter. “Hey, Mom. ” “You know I like to be up when you come in anyway. ” I don’t tell her how dumb that sounds; I just turn on the faucet and start to run the blade under the cold water. “I’ll do it,” she says, and touches my arm. Then of course she grabs my wrist, because she can see the bruises that are starting to purple up all along my forearm.

What? I was five. I thought it would work. But I don’t happen to have a baseball cap or any foil handy right now, so I try to think softly … whatever the hell that means. ” I ask. ” And then I know. He’s the one who tipped off Daisy. Some telepathic kid who wanted in on some action. How else would he know to follow me? How else would he know who I am? He was waiting. Waiting for me to hit school, like some freaky snake in the grass. “Wanna get something to eat? I’m starving. I haven’t been following you very long.

He was waiting. Waiting for me to hit school, like some freaky snake in the grass. “Wanna get something to eat? I’m starving. I haven’t been following you very long. ” He turns around and walks off, the frayed ends of his jeans scraping along the sidewalk in a little shuffle. He walks like a dog that’s been kicked, head low and hands stuffed into his pockets. I don’t know where he picked up his dusty green jacket, but I suspect it was from the Army surplus store I passed a few blocks back. “I’ll explain everything when we get there,” he says over his shoulder.
