“Ester is my aunt,” said Klaus, stowing their luggage as he talked. “I’m taking her on a special holiday. She’s always wanted to cross Europe by train. We spent some time in Paris first and we’ll spend some time in Istanbul at the other end.” He beamed. “It’s wonderful. Slight mix-up with the tickets – we were meant to be in a private car- but otherwise it’s all going brilliantly.”

“What’s upsetting? Please, can you tell us a bit more about the fight?”
Ivy dabs her eyes with a handkerchief. “Oh! I’m sorry, children! The memory is just too painful!”
She starts to blow into the handkerchief and cry, but it’s totally fake. And believe me, I know all about fake crying. Frank does it all the time to get what he wants from Eliza and their parents.

But as she stared, centuries of dirt and wear began to vanish, fade away as if she’d wiped the silver with some incredible cleaning fluid, the sort of product they advertise on the shopping channels. The plaque gleamed, its bright surface etched with curvy, scrolled letters.

Open the back door, enter the wood,
Take the path where deer once stood.
Find Dubhar’s statue carved from beech
And what you seek’s within your reach.

Jackson lifts his dark eyes to mine, and for a moment, we just stare at each other. There’s a sudden pressure in my chest, a breathlessness I’ve never experienced before. Jackson licks his lower lip again, and then slowly withdraws hi hand. He turns toward the sound of the girls running, rounding the building for likely the last time.
“I should probably get back,” I say, getting to my feet.
Jackson walks me toward the fence, and we pause as we reach the iron bars. I wish I could stay just a little longer, but I appreciate the time we’ve had.

“And after that?” I ask, back in my chair with my jeans sticking to me.
“Well-” He turns toward one of the Secret Service men.
The man nods.
“Back to one hundred words a day?” I say.
“Actually, Dr. McClellan -and I’m telling you this in strict confidence, understand?- actually, we’ll be increasing the quota at some point in the future. Once everything gets back on course.”
Well, this is new. I wait to see what other confidential tidbits he’s got up his sleeve.

“I know I shouldn’t ask,” said Mrs Patel. “But is she doing OK?”
Elena smiled tightly.
“Ah,” said Mrs Patel, nodding. She pushed the packed of medication across the counter and glanced around the small pharmacy. It was empty, so she clearly felt emboldened to go on. “It’s none of my business, but I think you are doing a marvellous job. If you ever need any help or advice, do come and find me. Bipolar is a really hard thing to manage for anyone, let alone a young thing like you.”

“Who are you?” Margo said in astonishment.
“Margo, it’s the ghost of Quincy Thomas the Pirate! Can’t you see?” Shivers turned to the man. “I’m sorry, Mr. Ghost, she’s not a pirate. She doesn’t understand how scary you are.”
The man cleared his throat and in a much deeper voice than before he said, “That’s right! I’m the ghost. BOO!”

Her mind made up, Amelia reached purposefully for a plum. It was velvety and light and its gentle glow illuminated her pale skin. Amelia took a small bite and felt her mouth begin to water. The flavour was full and sweet and almost magical… like nothing she’d ever tasted before. She took another bite, and another.

“Right here. In our new home,” he says in a voice that could be a hundred different things.
“Our new home,” I repeat, and I think the way I say it, it sounds like a wish.
Except for the first time, it really feels like it might be more than a wish. It might be our real life.

I’m VERY happy that Kristina IS COMING TO FAMILY DAY! I told the head of camp (+ I asked him to keep it a SECRET) + he was super happy, too. His name is Daniel Birnbaum + he wanted me to let Kristina know that he saw TELL ME WHEN JIMMY COMES HOME 4 times in Chicago + he’s a BIG fan.
