I stretch, exploring the feel of skin sliding over muscle. My shoulders roll—smooth, strong, and responsive. The child’s memories are less fluid. She’s a fighter and slows the flow between our consciousnesses to a trepid trickle. No matter. I’ve time to learn in this empty room. Glass grinding underfoot, I turn to the mirror.

She’s young, but older than I’d hoped for. Taking her would probably have been impossible in just a scattering of days. Leaning forward, I stare into dark eyes, willing her knowledge out.

A knock raps on the door.


What a fun 'out of body' experience! Will of a Wisp had me questioning my own consciousness. Although it was just a dip into what could be a deep and dark narrative, I found it to be a fun read, creating discomfort and curiosity in all the right ways!
