“Yeah, I’d like to think they change, too.” Kaye couldn’t imagine being forced to look the same all of the time. It was one of the benefits of her alopecia. She didn’t have to learn any fancy spell to change her look. All it took was a different wig and some makeup. It wasn’t complicated. She wouldn’t wish one color on these fireflies. It was much better to imagine they could change colors whenever they wanted. If she could just catch one, then she’d find out.

She opened it and inside was a bunch of fruit she’d snagged from the Finer Diner a couple hours ago. She’d pretty much just grabbed a bowl of fruit and dumped it in her bag. She grabbed a pear, then passed the bag over to Emmett. “Snack?”
