"What are you trying to tell me?" Marnie looked at Sebastian horrified. She was just an ordinary girl. There was nothing special about her. She couldn't even get along with her Mom. "One of us has to be crazy." She glared at him. "And it has to be you."
She hugged herself tight as they stood in the twilight. There was an October chill in the air. The cold, so sudden. Maybe she was coming down with something.
"Look, I'm here for you. It was meant to be. I know things aren't perfect. But its not your fault." He was serious as he grabbed her shoulders. "Its the forces out there, you see. They don't want you to have any power. When they can, they fool you. Marnie, you have to listen to me. We need to be together on this."
"For what?" She still didn't see what he was getting at.
He grabbed her hand. She saw how the old school house was starting an irry glow. As if it was not of this world, after all. She wanted to believe it was all a bad dream and she could wake up.
"Hurry!" They ran toward the old well. She looked back at the old school house, it was busting open. The light illuminating. Marnie's mouth gaping. She'd never seen anything like it before.
Sebastian grabbed her and down they went into the darkness of the well.
