The War of Wind and Moon
Seventeen-year-old Mia trusts no-one. She wants to – she’d give almost anything to be able to – but when your survival depends on the acute awareness of every whim and mood swing of your narcissistic, rage-filled mother, anxiety becomes a default state. You become expert at reading body language, facial expressions, vocal fluctuations – permanently prepared to fight or flee at the slightest hint of anger, aggression or even just disapproval. Mia’s learned it’s easier to be alone.
But Mia’s not alone. When the people you’re supposed to be safest with abuse you, it’s common to develop this hyper-aware state. Doctors have a name for it: hyper-vigilance.
The recruitment scouts at Kazemoto Security (Supernatural Division) have a word for it, too: potential.
