Baba pointed to the sky, and Amar looked, past the stars and past the lighter patch of the Milky Way, past the moon, and maybe God was there and maybe God wasn't, but when Baba said to him, "I don't think He created us just to leave some of us behind," Amar believed him.

My name is Weylyn Grey, and I'm near-sighted, allergic to ragweed, and my feet are flat.
