Vivica started to explain, and basically the gist Gigi was getting was that her partner could hear voices. Now, Georgina didn’t want to jump to conclusions, but in the magical or Muggle worlds, hearing voices was not a great recommendation for sanity. At least these ‘episodes’ Vivica experienced were recognised by her parents, and treated as something that could be managed. The other girl claimed not to be crazy, but Gigi wasn’t just going to take her word for it. It wasn’t normal to be overwhelmed by your thoughts, spoken in voices of your family members, but it wasn’t like Gigi was the expert on normal. There were just parts of what Vivica had said that made her sound a little unbalanced. Like that she had to stop her thoughts. How did a person stop their thoughts, exactly?

“Oh. Um, okay,” Georgina managed to utter some syllables. What exactly was she supposed to say to that, anyway? Sorry you have too many thoughts for your head and are probably a bit crazy? Although honestly, Gigi sort of wanted to see Vivica having one of these episodes. Okay that sounded morbid, but it wasn’t like she wanted to see the other girl suffer, but like… how did that even work? Gigi had been overwhelmed by thoughts sometimes, that part was normal enough, but she didn’t stop them, exactly, she just thought about something else. Or found something to kick. She certainly didn’t refer to them as ‘episodes’.

Whatever had just happened, Gigi didn’t know enough to deal with it, she didn’t know Vivica well enough to want to deal with it, and until that moment, what she had seen of the other girl was all okay. The skinny Aquila decided to let the matter drop completely, and more or less forget it had happened. She would keep it in the back of her mind, and maybe if she became proper friends with Vivica she would ask her more about it one day, but for now, she didn’t need to worry about a medical condition or anything like that, so basically it did not concern Gigi. She was fine with that. “Well, if you’re ready to go again,” she said, forcing a smile as she stepped back into position, “I’ll have another go, and this time you see if you can keep a hold of your wand.”

  • Whilst she knew others didn’t share such admiration for their parents, Vivica was a little shocked to hear Gigi give such a candid description of her own mother. Vivica had nothing but good things to ... more

      • The first rule of crazy club is, we don’t talk about crazy club. The second rule crazy club is, we don’t talk about crazy club! Gigi’s reaction made Vivica feel like she’d overshared a little. ‘More... more
