Hi, this is Josefina. As you (hopefully) recall from my previous post, Fiona said she was going to teach me how to float a pencil like she can. We didn't have anything planned for the evening, so we sat across the kitchen table and I tried to learn.
Fiona set the pencil down between us. She looked at it for a minute, and then it rose a couple of inches off the table. I looked around to see if there were hidden wires or clear cords or something holding it up, but I didn't see anything. She lifted it higher and lower, and then made it spin. Then she set it down, and told me to concentrate.
I tried. Nothing happened.
Fiona said I should focus more.
I tried some more. I started to think it wasn't going to work. I never did manage to lift it in the air... but there was a little burst of flame, and the pencil looked scorched! It was the weirdest thing!
Fiona said that had never happened to her before. She can make things move - like the pencil, or the spoons she talked in her interview about balancing on her hand. Nothing ever caught on fire, though.
I am sooooo freaked out! What's going on?!
