He came to her when she had too much to lose.
Wrapped up in her loneliness and wistful fantasy self, she yearned for something to tell her that she was different from the others. Special.
She was old enough to know she’d grow out of it and young enough not to believe it.
Writing at her desk, house quiet, she felt warm eyes at her back, golden gaze offering her the chance to become everything she longed for: the magic, the invisibility, the flying. The recognition. The power.
For a price, of course.
But what matter a soul between friends?
