Seventeen – “Boo”
The next day at school started out as pretty much the same old story. Amanda dressed in a sweater and jeans, brushed her hair, and got help from her mom with a little bit of makeup; couldn’t do much since she was unable to touch it up during the day.

Fourteen – Like a Walk in the Park
Tuesday was no different than Monday. Sweatshirt, jeans, guide, classes, no one to talk to, no friends, no enemies, no expectations, no fun -- just a boring, uneventful day ending with the “wonderful” after-school reading program.

Thirteen - There’s Enough Blame for Everyone

Ten - Game Day
To get the whole weekend off, Ken had to work every night that week, so he didn’t have time for much beyond school, community service, homework, and his job.

Seven – The Shock
...Even more strange, she’d just spent at least half an hour in the presence of other people without shouting at anyone, without cursing, without really thinking at all about not being able to see. Just what was she really feeling?

Let's shift gears a little and look at events from Amanda's point of view. Let me know if you like the shift in focus.

Sometimes something you do on impulse, without stopping to think about it, has a huge impact on your life. Sometimes that impact is even positive.

This chapter has a scene with a mild sexual situation. If that disturbs you I'm sorry but I felt it was important to the plot. Remember how things can change in the course of a weekend when you are a teenager?

Amanda's Eyes - Chapter Three – Plans
The Wednesday and Thursday sessions were the same with Amanda although, knowing Ken wouldn’t fall for it, she didn’t try the book-dropping trick again.

He needs community service credit to graduate from High School. She recently lost her sight and is having trouble dealing with her disability. His description of her, "She's about as friendly as a razor wire fence." Her description of him, "I can tell by the smell that it's the same pile of crap again today." Sounds like a perfect match doesn't it?

Have you ever noticed how little things -- a smell -- a texture -- a song, can bring back a memory so vivid you’d swear you were there, in that moment, once again?
