There’s magic under our feet, not just in our eyes.

Every time I thought I’d worked out what I really enjoyed, I started to second-guess myself. Maybe I just didn’t enjoy anything anymore.

I’m a very sad person, in all senses of the word, but at least I was going to get into university

I had a reputation for being organized, always doing homework, having consistently high grades, and having Cambridge University ambitions. My teachers loved me and my peers envied me.

I saw the audience rise to their feet, just so wonderfully happy to finally see him in person, and it amazed me how many people Aled had made smile just by taking two steps on to a lit stage.

When we were half an hour away, I said, “I feel like we’re in Universe City.”

Raine laughed. “In what way?”

“Radio’s trapped in Universe City. And someone’s finally heard him. Someone is going to rescue him.”

“Art reflects life,” said Carys. “Or … maybe it’s the other way round.”

And yeah, it was all in my head, probably. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t real. So fuck you all.

People move on quicker than I can comprehend. People forget you within days, they take new pictures to put on Facebook and they don’t read your messages. They keep on moving forward and shove you to the side because you make more mistakes than you should. Maybe that was fair. Who was I to judge, really?

On the first of November, I turned eighteen. I expected to feel different but, of course, I didn’t. I don’t think age has much to do with adulthood.

Aled could ever consider me his best friend when he’d already had one for so long, even if he’d been the honest-to-God best and most excellent friend I’d ever had in my whole life and I might have to live my whole life without meeting another person so brilliant as him.

“I think everyone’s a bit bored with boy-girl romances anyway,” he said. “I think the world’s had enough of those, to be honest.”

I wonder sometimes whether you’ve exploded already, like a star, and what I’m seeing is you three million years into the past, and you’re not here any more. How can we be together here, now, when you are so far away? When you are so far ago? I’m shouting so loudly, but you never turn around to see me. Perhaps it is I who have already exploded.

Sometimes I was hit by the weight of all the things I didn’t know, not just about Carys but about anything, everything. What’s it like to have a parent you don’t like, or who doesn’t like you? What’s it like to run away from home? I don’t know, I’ll never know. I’ll always feel awful about not knowing.

How was he eighteen? How could anyone I knew possibly be eighteen years old?

We were sitting in my lounge on the sofa watching Spirited Away.

I love the fact that this book mentions Studio Ghibli movies so frequently. "Spirited Away" is the best thing ever! 🥰✨

After a moment I could hear Aled running too, and I glanced behind me and stretched out my arm to him and cried, “Come along!” and he did; he reached out and took my hand and we ran like that through the countryside in the rain, and then he laughed, and it reminded me of a child’s laugh, and I wished people could always laugh and run like that.

She looked terrifying, in that classic white, middle-class mum sort of way. Dyed cropped hair, slightly round physique, a smile that said ‘Can I get you a cup of tea?’ and eyes that said ‘I will burn everything you love’.

We started to realise that it didn’t even matter what we did together, because we knew that if we were both there, we would have a good time.
