Re: On the train: The Schoolboy/The Witch
There would have been a point of time when Hugh would not have taken this pronouncement seriously. He'd have considered it a joke - witches weren't real and magic wasn't real - but that was before he'd spent over a year in Repose. There wasn't any other explanation than the supernatural for the things that sometimes happened, like the train just tonight, so he just tilted his head, looking over Aedan's profile for an instant.
"Just past Oakwood," Hugh told him. "I'm not quite to the end of Land's End, but I'm there on the lake. I could also walk from Oakwood if you're down it," he added.
The question occurred to him a little after the practical statements, and he looked over again. "What does it feel different than?"
