It didn't send me crazy, not quite, but I wasn't exactly stable either and the fact that I had no idea what was happening to me didn't help. Maybe if I'd had someone to talk to I might have tried to explain it, but there wasn't anyone left by then, not really (...) So I learned to control my power. I learned to focus my mind; block out the futures I didn't want to see; direct my perception instead of taking in everything. I learned to select futures; search out along those not-quite-visible strands of possibility; shut them off when it was too much and I needed the time to recover. And I did it alone, because I had to. And it worked. It didn't make me any happier. My crude ability to see the future didn't make me any friends - the opposite, if anything, I had knowledge, but there wasn't anything I could do with it.

I spend a lot of time running from things. It works, up to a point. Most of the time when you're in danger, the one who's threatening you isn't after you, not personally. They just want something you have, or you're in the way for some reason. Get away from them and stay away long enough, and things will change. But sometimes what the other person wants isn't a thing, or a piece of information, or some other short-term goal. Sometimes what they want is you. And when that happens, then all running does is put things off. It'll delay them, but if they want you badly enough then eventually they'll catch up again. Sooner or later you'll have to face them - the most you can do is choose the time and the place.

"I'm telling you to hide so you'll be safe. But you can still feel proud of who you are," he explained, like it really was that simple. "Pride has to come from within you and stay with you, no matter what people say." Huh? Frankie crossed her arms and looked away.

Treasures lies hidden in troubles,
Stop. J'en suis sorti. Des souvenirs. Du passé. Mais tôt ou tard les choses que tu as laissé derrière toi te rattrapent. Et les choses les plus simples, quand tu es amoureux, te semblent les plus belles. Parce que leur simplicité n'a pas d'égal. Et j'ai envie de crier. Dans ce silence qui fait mal. Stop. Laisse tomber. Reprends-toi. Voilà. Fermé. A double tour. Au fond du cœur, bien au fond. Dans ce jardin. Quelques fleurs, un peu d'ombre et puis la douleur. Mets-les là, cache les bien surtout, là où personne ne peut les voir. Là où toi tu ne peux pas les voir.

I mean, I'd do something nice now and again, but I always came first, you know? (...) I'm not sure who changed that you or Luna, but . . . I think it was Luna.

(...) (She) spent a lot of her time as a kid having to take care of everyone else (...) She's always been good at noticing things - she'd see when people needed help, and when her magic developed it was the same thing but stronger (...) But here's the thing - (she) doesn't actually want to do that all the time (...) she likes helping people (...) but she doesn't want to be nurturing and mothering every single person she meets for the rest of her life (...) Doesn't matter how many you treat, there's always another one. And you know what really gets annoying? Half the time they're not even all that grateful. The better you do your job, the more you fix people's problems, the more they take it for granted (...) Do you know what it feels like to always take care of everyone and get treated like crap? It gets to you (...)
- I think . . . - I hesitated, trying to figure out how to say it - I think you've been afraid of that side of yourself that you've gone too far the other way.
