HI, I’M DANNY. Kara’s left these pages empty so I guess she means for us, as in her friends, to write in it. So I’ll go first. I guess I should start with my first memory of her. This was some time after she first came to our house. I remember her first birthday. The whole village turned up and she loved the attention. I wanted to go round and meet everyone but no one paid any attention to me. I started crying and she stood up and said in her clear voice that they had upset her by upsetting me. She then opened the door and they all left. We spent the rest of the day playing. I don’t remember the details, just her loyalty to me. On my first day of school, she got up and dressed and was determined to come with me. My mother had to drag her into our room and lock her in while she took me to school. She was very protective of me, as with all of her friends. After her first day of school I don’t think anyone forgot her. Just walking through the door made everyone look at her. Then the accident with Freddy. I tried to warn her but the pig, Kathy, the oldest, stopped me. It was the funniest thing I ever saw when she burnt his hair off. Then the fire control lesson. When that flame appeared in her hand, flickering with the control of my forty-year old mother, the whole class just didn’t know what to think. To be amazed, teasing or even afraid. Then Xena went to join her and I thought that she would join us and I was right. At that moment I was sure that she would want nothing to do with me at school because I wasn’t particularly powerful but no. Best BFF ever! The next day Fran joined and a similar thing happened with her as with Xena but this time I was sure she wouldn’t desert me. When we found Ruby, Kara seemed to know exactly what to do. She brought Ruby inside and healed her with a touch. That was the moment when she started to scare me. After she had run out, I started asking and asking Fran and Xena for an explanation. I knew they knew something about it but they wouldn’t tell me. When she came back she said to the other two “It was supposed to happen” and wouldn’t tell me what it meant so I told myself to forget about it and take the now terrified Ruby home. I’m out of paper so it’s time to stop.
