An Equal and Opposite Magikal Reaction
School was out and the girls were again walking home.The sky was a bit overcast but the air was warm. Sandy and April were looking forward to a rare night without homework.
“You’ll never believe what I saw the other day, Sandy.”

“Mandy asked Vaughn to the dance!” April piped up brightly.
“Oh, really. Shouldn’t Vaughn have asked Mandy?”
“This is the Twenty First Century. So when did you become so old fashioned?” April retorted.
“Whatcha got there?” Sandy pointed to April’s arm.
“Got bored during lunch. Got a little vine and this flower from the school gardener. I wove it into a bracelet,” April said matter-of-factly. She looked down at her wrist to where the beach rose flower dangled from her crude bracelet.
Good thing he gave me a vine from another plant, April thought. The beach rose stems were thorny and too inflexible for a bracelet.
