There were two voices.

She couldn’t really pay attention to the rest of Kit’s fumbling over words, her gaze fixed firmly, terrifiedly, on Darby. Two voices, speaking at once. Kit was insanely weird, but Darlene doubted that she had any sort of ability to somehow speak in harmony with herself. That was ridiculous, even for Kit.
