    Bookmark Notes:

    From her land of shadows and spires come her dreams, following her into the day. The chatter of frog croaks and insects' wings speak clearly to her, come, come, but Mercedes doesn't go. She is transfixed by the echoes of a world beyond her own, shadows that dance away from their casters, trees that creak and turn to stare as she walks past. In the curls of her hair she feels ghostly horns rising and twisting; her fingers lengthen and sharpen, her rings slipping loose and clattering to the floor.

    She sees Ofelia in the mirror, standing behind her and watching Mercedes wash her face. Her expression is troubled, her gaze ancient, the set of her mouth and shoulders youthful and sweet. Strange, her Ofelia, a mess of contradictions clad in a white gossamer gown. She has muddy feet, Mercedes sees, and her hair is wilder than a proper young girl would wear it. That, at least, is familiar.
