As the Stars Twinkle in Essieterra (part 5)

Self-consciously, I raised my hand. Cornelius nodded towards me. “Ah, quite the diligent schoolgirl. Even when classes are dismissed, the lessons never cease.”
A moment later, I piped up, “I…I think I know the special quality that we all have in common. We are the rare—or, in some cases, the only—members of our species who have the power to truly see into the heart of the world; perceiving life in ways the universe has never witnessed before. Until now.” This notion brought forth numerous smiles and nods from those around me.
Before Cornelius could respond, a troll interjected, “Then how come the universe isn’t here with us?”
“The universe is everywhere. But sometimes, it can’t all fit into time or space. So a bit of it may spill out elsewhere. You see?” I replied simply.
Cornelius fixed his beautiful silver eyes upon me. “A very wise one indeed. It’s a pleasure to have you here, my dear.” Those words marked the beginning of an unforgettable chapter in my life.
