That at least brings us back to the Rite. Did you or didn't you-
I remember when you went...
I never fit in, you know... not even here. Here, I was an overgrown, clumsy girl with funny ears and no wings.
I remember that by the time you were twelve, your mind was a tangle of fear and self-doubt.
And I couldn't see anyone else's. Not even yours or our mum's. I was so eager to prove that I was a real faerie, that I took to wearing the most over-the-top faerie hats I could find. And I tried to sign up for the Rite early!
Yeah, luckily you couldn't get through the door of the local faerie office. Or rather, they wouldn't let you wiggle in and traipse around...
