One evening Girl wished aloud that her brother was invisible, and her wish came true.
“Oh, I wish you were invisible,” she had cried, and cringed when her voice bounced off the bare walls of their new home like a ball. When she looked again, her brother was nowhere to be found. The top of Girl’s head went cold with fright.
Girl’s mother came into the room and asked, “Girl? Where is your brother?”
Girl opened her mouth, and she closed it again. And she could not say a word.
Girl’s mother walked through the house, and then she ran through the house. And then Girl’s mother ran into the street. Girl sat still where she was and did not move. And then Girl jumped up and ran through the house too, but her brother could not be found.
