Laila and her brother were really close despite the little annoyances and she had found herself praying on numerous occasions that he, too, had magic and was just a late bloomer.

      • Suddenly it's a concerned stand-stil.Dustin, Sun Nov 6 13:18
        Dustin was, in many regards, a human being equivolant of a brick. He was not horribly perceptive, especially when it came to emotional issues. Girls seemed to have them a lot--his experience coming... more
