Jon was about to go home, when all of a sudden a realization hit him like a light-bulb turning on over his head. He pressed his left hand into his forehead, and grumbled. Seeing Sarah had gone back into the school building, he checked around her locker and she wasn't there. He then took a guess and went to the room where she had her last class of the day, and there she was.

"You know, you're sick," Jon said, looking down and shaking his head.

"How was that sick?" Sarah asked.

"You made me friends with that nasty girl that hates everyone."

"Only for today, and only during school hours. A 7 hour long life experience for you. How is that sick? She's lonely and unhappy. It was probably good for both of you."

"Yeah, hating everyone will result in you being alone, I guess," Jon agreed.

"Come on Jon, don't you feel sorry for her?"

"It's hard for me to feel sorry for someone that hates me in return."

"Every day I see her alone. You know she's a lesbian?"

"It doesn't surprise me. She was saying nasty things about guys. She thinks we're all just mindless cretins that spend our every waking moment obsessed with boobs."

"And yet you never see her with another girl, do you? Do you know why that is?"

"Because she's a nasty person to everyone, not just guys, and girls don't like her back?"

"In 6th grade, she confessed her love to me."

"Oh god," Jon said, covering his face with his hands. "You know she hates you too. I mean, she hates everyone, but you with a passion."

"She does, huh?" Sarah said sadly. She had tried to reject Karyn's confession gently, but apparently there was just no way to do it without the end effect being to tear her little heart out.

"Well anyway, it seems to me," Jon said, "that if you want to set things right and mend bridges, that you shouldn't use me as a go-between, you should do it yourself directly. I don't think there's any point though. Some people just don't deserve it. You're the nicest and most wonderful person I've ever met, Sarah, and if you weren't my cousin, I'd be competing with all the other guys to get you too. I know you must have tried to be kind to her. But she thinks you're the queen of the bitches or something. There's just no helping it, if she can't even see that much objectively, I think she's irredeemable. By the way, here's your magic rock back. Nice note from grandpa by the way."

"It's rightfully just as much your magic rock, he was your grandfather too," Sarah said back. "Or it should be. He just gave it to me, for, I don't know why. The note is actually almost the same thing as the one he sent me, I just changed a few words and names to make it be about you. Besides, this thing, is just too much for me, all alone. I needed it to share with you of all people. By the way, I had a crush on you when we were little kids."

"I know. And you know I felt the same way. But it wasn't meant to be," Jon lamented.

"Come on Jon, give me a little kiss..." Sarah teased.

Jon laugh-snorted out his nose and affectionately ruffled her soft, silky amber hair with his hand as he began walking away. "See you Sarah. Don't tempt me, one of these days I might just say yes."

As Jon left the classroom, Karyn hid behind 2 people that were talking. She had been just outside the classroom, barely able to listen in on the conversation over the ambient noise, not entirely sure of what she just heard. It was enough to confirm things. The problem was, she remembered everything. She didn't know the exact wording of what Sarah had wished for, but Karyn was horrified at her knowledge of both versions of reality. Karyn remembered it all.
