Chapter 1

Flying, oyster-flowers and a strange boy spying on me.

Me and Tuney were playing on the swings at Duskon Hill playground. All day I'd wanted to fly, but Tuney wouldn't let me. But just because Tuney said not to that didn't mean I wasn't going to do it. On my swing, I'd gone way higher then her, and was almost ready to jump off. But Tuney wasn't stupid. In fact, I think she saw it coming.

"Lily, don't do it!" shrieked Petunia.

But I wasn't listening to her. After all, she was so bossy. She thought being older then me made her the boss of me. She would always pick on me when she could do something I couldn't. But this was one of the few things Tuney couldn't do, and that's why I loved to do it. I was so close, and it almost seemed impossible not to just soar into the air like one of Mummy's paper cranes.

I let go of the swing at the very height of it's arc and flew into the air! It was amazing! I felt free! Free of the rules, free of Petunia's insistant snobbiness, free of everything. I laughed out loud! I stayed up for a long time, watching the playground rush past me and, most enjoyably, watching Tuney yell at me and get all angry. I didn't want to come down, but I did. A far distance away though, so Tuney would have to run to catch up with me.

"Mummy told you not to!" Tuney marched over to me and put her hands on her hips, trying to look all official and mature while catching her breath. "Mummy said you weren't allowed, Lily!"

"But I'm fine," I said, trying to hold down my giggles. Why did the funnest things always have to be against the rules? "Tuney, look at this. Watch what I can do."

Tuney glanced around nervously. She always did that when I was about to do some magic. I think she does it because she wouldn't want all of her friends to know that I was her sister, so she doesn't look like a freak.

I picked up a fallen flower from the bush next to us. Tuney came forward more to get a better look. Even with that dissaproving scowl on her face, she looked a little curious. I waited until she stopped moving, and then held out my hand with the flower in it. The flower just sat there, for the moment, then when I concentrated just a little more, the flower started opening and closing it's petals. Like some bizarre many-lipped oyster.

"Stop it!" Tuney shrieked for the second time today.

"It's not hurting you," I said matter-of-factly. And you'd think Tuney would be impressed, but no. She just continued to yell at me to stop.

So to save her the embarrasment, I closed my hand around the flower, so she couldn't see me keep moving the petals. I could see it still bothered her, so I threw the flower back at the bushes. Only then did Tuney start to calm down.

"It's not right," she said as the flower made it's way to the ground. Her eyes followed it every step of the way. So she was interested. After awhile she broke the silence: "How did you do it?" There was a definate longing in her voice.

I was about to answer when I heard a voice behind me. A boy's voice. Coming from the bushes, "It's obvious, isn't it?"
