Looking down, in case she judged me, found me wanting.
“Ok, let’s be prudent,” she said. “We’ll go to lectures like good little girls and boys. Is that what you want?”

But I did! Of course I did!
Being with Seasons made me feel real, totally real, nothing else had any importance.
She smiled. “Then let’s change, be sensible,” she said.
