I wasn’t happy at first. With the powers, I mean. Like, everyone gets stuff like fire and lightning, and I’m here with…thread. Manipulating thread.
But then there was that girl. Came into our shop looking for a dress, had some real tight specs for it…and she smiled at me, gave me the look. Hard to tell sometimes – not like everyone wears ‘I’m gay’ on their sleeves – but I could just feel it, you know?
So when I wound the thread that night, forging a love letter of string, I realised…
There’s no power I’d rather have but this.
