It should be mine. Give it to me!"

"You just said you love me!" heaccused with excitement.Again, I gaped at him, temporarily speechless. Of course I denied it. I had to; it was my natural reaction to his ego. "I did not!""Did too." He grinned. "You said, ‘why did that ruin everything.' Meaning you agree that it happened. You said it. Can't take it back. You love me."Learning to control my powers was child's play compared to keeping a straight face right then, but I couldn't give in to his smugness. He was just sosure of himself. "Do not.""Do too.""Do not.""So do too."

The girls younger than I who would ask for a living wage, whose working conditions are so deplorable they were locked in a burning factory? they could make use of your precious help."She holds her head high. "We would have done so. In time."I snort in disgust. "It is daunting to be a woman in any world. What good does our power do us when it must be kept secret?""You would prefer bold voices to illusion?""Yes."
