I suppose at Ira's age I was starting to get kind of moody. I'd just started high school and I didn't get on with many of the people there. They thought I was weird and snobbish, and I didn't think they were particularly interesting. All the girls were gossipy and the boys were like little kids. But I didn't get all mopey like Ira did when he realised people didn't like him - I got annoyed. It wasn't so bad at home, but I hated going to school. I used to get in trouble all the time for arguing and for not listening to anyone.
When I was Fox's age, I was a bit similar to her. I just thought everything was an adventure. I didn't believe in magic and all that stuff, though, like she does. But I used to pretend I was an explorer or a knight or whatever. I wasn't very girly. Maybe I wasn't that similar to her, after all, actually.
