They know. I don't know how - I haven't told anyone yet, not even Buffy, but they all know. It's that little smile when I walk by, the knowing glint in their eyes. The way they turn to each other, whispering amongst themselves.
I know what they're saying. I can't hear them but I still know. `See her, she's a witch.' `I heard she was a lesbian.' `A lesbian witch.' `Lesbian witch' `Lesbian witch'
I try to block it out but... but it's there all the time. I walk with my head down, not looking at anyone. But they still see me. It's almost as if there's an arrow pointing to my head saying `lesbian witch here, tell everyone you know.'
Then I look up and she's walking towards me. Tara. And she's smiling.
And suddenly, nothing else matters.
