What she really needed was a break from her everyday routine. Maybe find something totally different to do this summer, something way out of the ordinary. Something that would give her the jolt she needed to want to join the human race once more. Right now, she just wanted to smoke this last cigarette before she quit again, climb into bed and pull the covers over her head for the rest of the day.

Star grabbed her purse to locate a lighter and the box the strange man had given her tumbled out. After lighting the cigarette and enjoying the first pull and exhale of smoke, she picked up the box and turned it over in her hands.

Now she remembered Curtis. A quiet boy, he had only been with them for a month, then his family had left the area, she recalled. What she did remember about him was that he was strange. He looked a lot like his father, thin and pale, and hadn’t talked much. He’d sat by himself to eat lunch and had leaned against the brick wall of the school watching the other kids play at recess, never joining in. She’d felt bad for him because the other children had ignored him, but he hadn’t seemed to care, so she’d let him be. She’d come to find some children preferred to be alone.

She had finally had to gently reprimand him, though. In the classroom, he’d continually watched her, following her every move, even when he was supposed to be doing an assignment. One day she’d called him aside and asked him if something was wrong.

He’d smiled—a creepy smile—and had shaken his head. She’d asked him to please stop staring and had told him it was considered rude to watch a person so intently. He’d just said “Yes, ma’am” and that had been the end of the conversation. He’d quit watching her quite so much, and he’d moved shortly afterwards. She hadn’t thought about him since.

Why would he give her a gift? Had she really helped him? With what? Star slowly opened the lid and jumped as she heard a clap of thunder. A burst of light swirled around her and she felt herself lifted out of her chair and pulled away.
