For Fay

I am giving you my mystical skate key, used for the roller skates I keep in the depths of my mind’s closet. With this key, you will be able to adjust your skates to roll sweetly and swiftly around obstacles, to outrace anyone without the key, and to return unharmed to those who truly love you.

No one else can see this key — I’ve filtered it to keep it safe. I reckoned you could use the help, and this was all I had to give you for your trip.
