The third task was just about to begin and Adonia was ready to cheer on Elias with her classmates. She didn't really care who won, but she was proud of her school! Plus, Elias was in third place so there really wasn't any coming back from that. She was just happy to be there.
The crowds were filing into the stands, Adonia wild and loud amongst them. She laughed loudly, as usual, and paused to hold her stomach against the laughter when her friends got ahead of her. She waved them off, straightening up. She'd catch up, of cour- she stopped thinking. Her mind went blank. All she saw was that girl.
She straightened up, ignoring the crowds pushing around her. But her eyes were fixed on that person, and her feet slowly moved in that direction. She felt like she was looking into a slightly warped mirror. Different clothes, sure, some different features but... She knew this girl looked like her. In fact... Some of her features looked aggressively like what she vaguely remembered of her mother.
She reached her, but didn't say anything. For the first time in her life, Adonia was literally speechless.
