The next morning Ariel awoke feeling better. For some reason her mind was at rest, but she was still terribly tired. She forced herself to get up & get dressed quickly, then ran to Ki's room. Ki was still asleep but Ariel nudged her gently. "Ki? Ki, it's Ariel!" She said with excitement. Ki opened her eyes with a start. She looked Ariel over & saw the faint spark that used to be in her eyes. "Ki, can I call Jeremiah? Can we go hang out!?" She asked almost begging.
