Virginia Thorton is Key 2: The Seer




I've had the Gift since I was a small child, Mr. Riley. I've always been able to see and feel the presence of living people in ways that others cannot. My mother told me once that she could never get me to play the peek-a-boo game that other babies play, when I was small. She could show me how to cover my eyes and say the words, but I never seemed to get the joke — I was never surprised to find that she was still there when I opened my eyes. I knew she was there, even when they were closed.

I could feel the shape of her, sense the light of her life. I knew when she was sitting in front of me — I knew when she was in another room, for that matter. When I got older, I could feel her several blocks away, and then half way across town. My range and strength increased with every passing year. By the time I was eighteen, the sheriff would arrive at my door with his hat in his hand, when a child went missing. He knew that he didn't need to wait for the paperwork to go looking.

Since this Trouble has come, my senses have become even sharper. Even the faintest light stands out against such an overpowering darkness. When the world was well and whole, it was harder to sense specific people, especially if I hadn't met them personally. But now when I close my eyes, I see this town as a tapestry of tiny sparks, shivering and darting against a curtain of cold black. They're frightened, Mr. Riley — so frightened. And every day, more of those sparks disappear.
