As we began to struggle to our feet once more (I think I was starting to get better at this, as it seemed to be easier this time around), I suddenly heard Suzie's voice in my head.
"Do you hear that?" I asked.
Brav looked at me with a confused look. "Hear what?"
"David?" Suzie's voice asked. "Where are you? I'm still waiting for you in Epic City. What's taking you so long?"
"How are you talking to me?" I asked.
"What are you talking about?" Brav asked.
"I'm not talking to you," I told Brav. "I'm talking to Suzie."
"I used a spell to communicate to you," the voice answered.
"Oh. Wait a minute. Did you say that you're in Epic City?"
"Then ..." I trailed off, turning towards the little girl in the meadow. She was still giggling at us. If Suzie was in Epic City, then ... who was this little girl?
