“I know, I know. You think it can’t happen but I am telling you it will. You thought (this and this and this) couldn’t happen but it did, just like I said it would. Does it suck that I was right? I bet it does. My sister told me that years ago. She said it was my biggest problem. She said I was right too much and people didn’t like it. Anyway, I’m just telling you that I guess it will be a great shock to you when you find out that you… you the darkest of all dark figures can be replaced by me… me, a mere girl.”
“Yeah, you don’t believe me but you’ll see. Put two of us side by side and the shadow that may start on you will wind up on me. It’s impressive. You’ve got to go a long way. You’ve pretty much got to go around the world to find someone who will be blamed over you but you’ve done it. Yep, you’ve done it, I’m her.”
“Wanna take a bath?” he said, grinning.
“Sure,” I said, grinning back.
