“You think you cast a spell on me? Like, saved me with your magic wand?” Lily crossed her arms. “You don’t seriously expect me to believe that?”

“Yes, I do.” The dark stars inked on Joshua’s temple glowed silver in the moonlight as he grinned. “Except the last bit. Wands are for amateurs.” Then he swiped his hand through the air as if tracing a complex image, and tingling warmth cascaded through Lily. The heat coalesced to a tangible weight, like hands at her waist. Lily gasped. She felt his touch, but his hands were nowhere near her!

“H-how are you…”

Joshua’s brown eyes twinkled and he murmured in what sounded like another language. Instantly, the hypnotic sensation traveled up her arms in a swirling pattern, igniting her skin.

“Please.” Lily breathed, not sure what she meant. Please stop? Or please don’t stop? Joshua’s fingers curled at his side and the sensation evaporated.

Lily willed her voice not to tremble. “Okay, obviously you’ve got some weird street magician thing going. I don’t know how you’re doing those tricks—”

“Spells.” Joshua interrupted.

“—spells,” Lily continued, “But what’s inside of me is dangerous. I know it’s hard to understand, but I’m not normal. Something inside me is…damaged. It’s like I’m—”

“Cursed,” he finished with the exact word she intended to use.

Lily nodded.

Joshua’s tattoos glimmered in the darkness.

“Your curse is why I’m here.”
