"I will never hurt you again", he says. He gently brushes my hair away from my face and smoothes my eyebrow with his thumb, a gesture I'll remember and crave long after he's gone.

I sink into him, hoping to find safety where I know it doesn't exist. Time heals all wounds, I think. We can heal together. I'm Wendy, I can pull together the Lost Boy.

Months later, the secrets and lies have piled up. I can no longer step over them or brush them under the bed. It's October. By the end of the month, I'll be gone.

Even Wendy left Neverland when she got tired of the games.

Intriguing. Will there be an episode 2?
