I'm Still Not Convinced This Isn't a Dream

“It’s sort of confusing, though,” Gweneth continued, “because it is supposed to carry three people over. A crowd was around me when I performed the spell, so I don’t really know who came with me.”

“Well, apparently I’m not. The whole concept of the spell was to meet who created you.” She turned her head to look into the night, her sight completely missing the azaleas to the side. Melissa leaned back in her chair, taking off her glasses and rubbing her eyes.

She still wasn’t entirely sure she wasn’t asleep at her desk, dreaming of her character.
