"What's wrong?" Amanda asked.
"Well...Don't turn around, but--Amanda, I said don't turn around!"
"Oh, Emily, it's a reflex, don't you know? If you say to someone 'Don't think about elephants,' what do they think about immediately?"
Emily laughed. "Okay, but I didn't want him to know we saw him."
"This boy. Please, Amanda, don't look at him, okay?"
"It's a real grungy-looking boy, and he's watching us. He's kind of leaning against the doorway, you know, where you can go sit inside if you want."
"How do you know he's watching us?" Amanda asked.
"I can tell, believe me. He hasn't taken his eyes off us this whole time."
Amanda held up her hand, and Jack was instantly at her side.
"Emily believes there is someone staring at us, Jack," Amanda whispered.
Emily turned to show Jack. "He's--Hey!"
"He's gone. He isn't there anymore."
