Those first years living in her new home were hard, adjusting to the reality that she was somehow able to straddle two different dimensions, yet not trusting anyone enough to tell about it. Tessa kept quiet about her gift, as much as she could, until the day Ava Arden figured it out after receiving a digital camera for her 9th birthday.
Tessa knew she shouldn’t have picked it up, that camera. She knew she should have made an excuse to leave instead. Why? Put a camera in her hands and all sorts of unexplained figures, shapes, and other-worldly “beings” start showing up in the photos. It doesn’t matter if the camera is hers or yours, fancy or plain, or if it takes 35mm film or digital pictures. So long as Tessa is present, so are the supernatural beings who walk with her though this life.
