"I think so. That makes the most sense, at least." Cole shrugged and nodded, carefully avoiding looking at Clemence.

spooky scary skeletons
speak with such a screech
you'll shake and shudder in surprise

Ferris involuntarily let his gaze slide over to Clemence, who was busy inspecting something on the ground to avoid looking at them.
"We just need to get Chris to trust us again," Ferris said. "Sunny, I think your powers will probably come in handy."

She raised an eyebrow at Ferris at that comment. "I told you about our argument this morning. If I try using my powers, it'll only piss him off even more."

"I know, but you could show him your memories and it'd maybe help," Ferris explained, biting his lip.

"You - you really think that could work?" Sunny bit her lip. Not that she hadn't showed him her memories before, but that was before he became so freaked out by them.

Ferris nodded. "I think it might. Or at least convince him that we never tried hurting him. You also might be able to figure out what the witches made him think we did."

She took a deep breath and nodded. “All right. Yeah, I guess I’ll try it.”

“Cool. Now we just have to find him,” Andrew said. He closed his eyes and focused again on tracking Chris.

Clemence watched Andrew for a moment, then turned to Cole. "Are you okay?" she asked softly, figuring she would need to help track down Chris.

Clemence nodded, glancing over his face quickly before she turned to help Andrew.

Andrew had opened his eyes and smiled at Clemence again. "Ready?" he asked.

"Yeah," Clemence nodded and offered a small smile of her own. She then turned away and tried to focus on what her instincts were telling her.

"What do you feel?" Andrew asked after a moment. His feet had automatically angled themselves in the right direction, but he had yet to notice that.

Her eyebrows furrowed together, but then she opened her eyes and pointed. "We should head that way," she said.
