Ness's eyes were like deep lakes of blue, dark, secretive; her hair hung around her face like a mask of honey brown curls.  Derric felt that if he could just remove this veil of secrecy he would find something beautiful, but Ness only shook her head and slipped away.  "Ness, please,"  he walked after her, "wait a moment."  The girl paused and turned to him.  "What?" He ran his fingers through his hair.  "Why are you mad at me, Ness?"  Her dark eyes widened, "Mad at you? Oh Derric, how could I possibly be angry with you?  No, no, I'm not mad at you at all."  Derric answered her smile and took her hand.  "You know Ness, its just that it is extremely difficult to read your mind." "Is that a bad thing?"  "Well no-- I mean only when I want to talk with you," he laughed.

A week later, Derric drove up to Ness's house in his freshly washed Corolla.  As Ness did not come out, Derric went in.  He could hear music blasting from upstairs so he made his way up.  At this rate they would be late for the event.  Covering the walls of the stairs were photos--of Ness's late parents, of her old friends she had moved away from, and lots of her brother Will who had died in a car accident two years ago.  It was like walking through shrouds of memories, some sweet some bitter, most bittersweet.  The music was coming from Ness's bedroom, so Derric pushed the door slightly open and his face changed.  Inside a fairy was going through a fantastical dance, her figure swaying, bending and simply moving with the melody of the song.  Derric was enchanted and stood stock still at the door.  Suddenly Ness's eyes met his and she stopped.  "Derric!" she gasped, still out of breath from a twirl.  Derric was still enchanted.  "Ness-- that-- that was amazing."  She turned to stop the music.  "Its nothing.  Let's go."
