I peered in Maisy's direction. She and grandfather we're in a conversation so deep He barely recognized my presence. It was the perfect time to slide away. No one would notice the disappearance of a pardoned slave. I headed to the empty balcony to do something I actually cared about, To speak to someone I actually had a bond with.

"About time." My father's disheartening voice broke the silence.
I faced the fading figure. A streak of grey smoke that still kept his apparition.
