"Evelyn," Evelyn replied to the Reece, the boy who had just joined them. She looked at Howl again (she had another fit of blinking), who'd sighed at the mention of his and Kim's split. Evelyn felt a wave of sympathy for him. It couldn't be easy, eveyone talking about the two of them all the time.

          "I know," Flora replied, "I didn't sleep much over the summer." not that she did usually, anyway, but that wasn't the point. No one had this time. "Do you have a baby brother or sister, then?" she... more

            "No," Evelyn said to Flora, "but I had to babysit for a neighbour once. The kid was only one and it was pure hell." She closed her eyes and shook her head, briefly reliving the horror that was... more

              Reece nodded to Flora and Howl, and turned his head politely to listen to Evelyn. There was something familiar about her. He didn't catch it at first, but then his eyes widened at her story. "Wow!"... more
