    Aurora Larios
    Aurora was always a strange little girl. She spoke her first words when she was five years old, when everyone thought that she would be mute for life. Pale as marble and beautiful as an angel, she spent most of her days contemplating the flowers and birds in the back yard. She didn’t much care for the presence of other people. She knew how to read other’s hearts well and she did not see good things most of the time. Only with Emiliano, her dear brother, did she feel completely at ease. As soon as she woke up she would ask him to sing verses with his guitar so she could spend the rest of the day carefree about what could happen out in the world. When she turned nine she began having dreams of things before they happened and the rumor quickly spread through town that Aurora had special powers, and it was even said that she had been seen sleepwalking, running errands for the dead.
