Storm Chasing

"Tragedy blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything, creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle, and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it's still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild. Because after disaster strikes, the important thing is that you move on. But if you're like me, you just keep chasing the storm." - Veronica Mars

Really, there was no need to be snarky. But this was my own fault for reciting that poem while lighting candles then spinning around eight times.

I didn't want to believe it. It was impossible! I looked again across the empty classroom to where the book teetered on the edge of the desk.

"Move," I murmured. And again, the book slowly lifted, rising in the air. I swallowed hard. "Down." It set itself back in place.

I breathed out, scared that I was a freak. Then I looked outside the class window to where Marie and Callie were still laughing about me.

And I smiled.
