“Well, well, well. Daisy Guthrie.”
On the back of the broom, a witch pushed back the cloak of her hood to reveal a tangle of hair colored every hue of the rainbow.
Helix Andromeda patted the handle of her broom in invitation. Daisy swallowed hard.
Helix looked… Well, she looked even better than she had when they went to college together, back when Daisy had harbored a massive crush on the girl who sat two seats down from her in Magical Ethics. The hair was different, but not unexpected. Helix had always liked to play with magical body modification. Daisy had seen her hair sea green and caution yellow and—one summer session during Pride month—pink, purple, and blue all together. The Helix grinning at her from the back of a broom, both of her dark brown cheeks dimpled, had charmed her eyes today as well. In the natural near-black of her irises swam a cosmos of stars and comets that glittered and winked.
“You getting on?” Helix asked.
How will Helix react to this reunion? What other secrets lie in Daisy and Helix’s past?
