Chapter 35: Sunday
Early morning, alone, I hear a noise. I go to the door and there's a cardboard box outside with a note attached. I leave the shed and Rosie is there and we inspect the box.
The note says "As requested."
When Rosie opens the box I see a microchip.
"This is what you wanted isn't it?"
I nod. Words are difficult.
"Should I-?" she gestures inserting the chip.
She inserts the chip and at first nothing happens. Then I feel a warm tingly feeling and I rise up off of the ground and spin. I keep spinning around then I drop to the group. I now have high heels. I have glittery legs and arms. I have a red corset dress. I have a loveheart shaped head and loveheart shaped eyes. I still feel the fire inside me but it is not visible. I feel it in my chest. I use my glittery arms to press a button on my dress. It releases fire. I press the second button and it releases water. I press the third button and I feel my send stretch to squeeze but I say "STOP," and they go back to this new version of normal for me.
"How do you feel?"
"Like myself. 100%. Thank you."
"What should I call you?"
"The Heart Queen."
"I prefer that to Fire King."
"So do I."
Rochelle and Sandra join us. They say they couldn't watch it in case it turned out to fail but now they are so happy.
We are a family.
