Marnie was trembling. Seeing Sebastian, was like seeing a ghost. She didn't know what to believe now. His car burned up. That night. How could this be? Everyone thought he was dead. Which actually put everyone at peace. No one talked about Sebastian.
Her face turned to sorrow. She thought of those moments when she'd felt so lost. Dealing with a silent pain she couldn't even share. Even worse, never having a chance to see him again. Wishing she spent more time with him, knowing him..wanting him.
Here he was. It didn't seem real. A chill swept through her.
"I'm sorry," He said now. His hands reached for hers as they stood outside the old school house that everyone said was haunted. Why, he chose here? She didn't know, other than the fact the school wasn't too far from her grandmother's farm house.
But they were alone in the setting sunset.
Instantly, she felt calm. How did he do it?
"The fire was my fault." He confessed. "I didn't know I had that kind of energy, but..but I'm better now."
Marnie still wanted to believe the fire at the dance was an accident. It happened well over a year ago. She shook her head, no.
"I'm trying..to control it..and I can." He was serious.
"OK." Marnie stared at him intently. "What are you?" She wanted to know. She wanted to know Sebastian. She did. She'd always been intrigued with his words, even more so ...with his smile and those eyes. Marnie had missed him. If only she could hold him, know him completely. But what if she shouldn't? As it was, she couldn't take her eyes off him.
