She wasn't much of a greenthumb. Dad wasn't always enthusiastic on pets, so once or twice, she'd try to raise a houseplant instead, or at least try to keep a vase of flowers alive. They wilted under her touch, like she was poison, curling into withered threads of black and gray. Every time. Cailin ducked her head to avoid the broad leaves that stretched over the aisle like an arcing tunnel, sidling between the flowerbeds, as if the walls of the greenhouse themselves were about to fold in.

Don't touch, or they'll burn.

Don't look too hard either, or they might burn too.

But she had to grab at least a couple. Cailin slid her fingers into a rubber glove, scrunching up her nose in the way it seemed to wrap to her hand like a restraint, and started plucking.

They said that the greenhouse was hardly more than a shack, back in his grandpa's days, but he couldn't remember a time the place didn't feel like a maze. He'd spent way more time getting to know the place than he'd like to admit, but not for any particular love of botany...

A few empty baby jars rattled away in his backpack, muffled with textbook, papers, and an extra sweater stuffed inside. He thought it'd only take 20 minutes tops, in and out like nothing, but that was under the assumption that he'd be alone.

Cailin Andrews, he quickly recognized. There weren't many he could remember growing up with through Liberi, but she'd been one of the rare few. Even still, they never talked much... She'd always had a sort of distant aura to her that he could never quite place...

That and the moment he decided girls no longer had cooties was the same moment his mind went and decided talking to women as a whole was an insurmountable, paralyzing feat all on its own.

'I'll talk to her... eventually..." He swore to himself, not for the first time, and resigned to take a few steps towards the back of the aisle, his bag swinging as he went. Jon had felt his back brush up against some pot, but it hadn't registered what he'd done until it shattered on the floor with an ear-splitting crash.

The purple poofs at the ends of the stems curled inward as the flowers dropped to the floor. She pivoted on her foot, like a crane, almost hopping out of her skin as the ceramic went crashing against the hard concrete. "Oh!" Cailin's hand flashed over her mouth, eyes drawing up toward the boy with the backpack. Jon Wright. Instant recognition lit up in her eyes, although they'd never spoken. The flowers at her feet suddenly burst into flames, without even having to touch them. She pressed her gloved palms together. "Was that—...?"

It was so comforting for him to know that years of hypothetical conversations and talking himself in the mirror had done so well to prepare him for this very moment. His eyes flickered from her, to the broken pot behind him, back to her and her broken, burning plant on the floor; which might have made him freak if it hadn't fizzled up so quickly. Jon froze, gasping for words. It felt like if he took one step further, the entire conservatory would come crashing down around them.

"Ah, yeah, Hi -" He let his backpack slip off one shoulder. "Sorry, I didn't - didn'tmean to..." The back slid off his other shoulder, only to crash straight into the leg of the table again, unleashing a threatening, echoing creek in the building. He winced. "I was just passing through, actually, but -"

Fuck him sideways.

Jon forced himself to stop again, taking in a deep breath and putting on a weak smile. "Do you need help with that?" He gestured toward the poor flower before her.

While he grasped for words and almost gave her a second heart attack, her hands flashed with electric currents, flapping helplessly as she surveyed the damage. It took a moment for his question to plant inside her head, glancing up from the mess spread in front of her. "It's..." It couldn't be really helped now, could it? She shook her head. "It's okay. Don't sweat it." Cailin toed at the little ash heap, brushing it discretely beneath the flower racks, spreading a black stain across the floor where the delicate shrinking violet had fallen just a second before.

She flexed her wrists, light gleaming against her skin, pointed fingers wheeling in short circular motions. Her hair rose up on end, her earrings pointed out like daggers, and on the edge of hearing, you could hear the light scrape of the metal racks and shelves pulling in toward her, microinch by microinch, the humming lights growing surreptitiously brighter. Behind Jon, hard granules of black iron and magnesium rich soil lifted from the shattered terracotta in long tendrils, three feet, four feet off the floor, clumping together in the air and collecting in her cupped palms. There was just a chalky red sawdust left powdered on the floor, easily swept. Cailin unceremoniously dumped the mess in her hands in a spare pot, brushing her dirty palms together. She wasn't cut out for gardening.
