What happens to the girls whose conjured illusions exorcise your demons?

The girls who were once boy, once girl and at once none.

The girls who became the boys that cried wolf.

The girls always left without a chair when the music stops.

The girls whose no will always mean. Yes, maybe, take me and break me, use me become whole.

Who invited the storm?

Who run to the fire not from it?

What happens to the girls?

What happens to the girls whose magic was never enough to escape haunted bodies?
