It's late. Late enough that she really shouldn't be out. But her parents wouldn't really care, and she'd needed to get out, needed to not be in the house. She would've brough Ant, but getting them both out wasn't easy.
She would've gone to Eric's, but she didn't want to wake him up - he needed all the sleep he could get.
So, she's ended up in the park. Where a group of teenagers had decided that they were going to hassle the child.
She looks up at them with wide, intent eyes. "Did you know that you can kill someone with a spoon?" she asks innocently. "If you use enough force. Or at the very least you can take their eyes out. They scream a lot."
The teenagers are starting to get the impression that they've chosen the wrong child to hassle.
