"That's lucky," I laugh weakly, looking over at him as I nod. "It'll draw less attention tomorrow when I'm puking on the side of the road."

"It really will," I say with a laugh as I glance at her sympathetically. "Honestly, it won't be at all out of place... one of the few bunk mates I had growing up was this nine year old girl who looked like death. I learned later that she'd been taking opiates since she was seven to try to stop the voices in her head. It took a Guardian finding her to finally stop them, and bring her in from the streets.

"It wasn't unusual to see people like her after that," I say lightly. "Something about witches and addiction go hand in hand."

"I had a drinking problem for a long time," I admit quietly, my gloved fingers drumming absently on the steering wheel. "And an anger problem... the drinking really didn't help the anger issues..."
