- I snuck a glance past Master Evan's shoulder to see Master Damien standing several feet away looking annoyed. Everyone else also looked a little put out. I walked toward them with my head down and thought about what to do. They didn't like it when I acted scared, so I had to act apologetic without being wimpy.
- I remembered what Master Damien had told me. They wanted me to touch them without fear. It was decided, I would do what they wanted.
- I looked up into Master Damien's eyes as I approached him and put my arms lightly around his waist.
