Hallie gave birth to Jeanne who was a clone. Jeanne’s father died in a starship disaster two hundred and eighty years ago. Jeanne’s mother died four hundred years ago back on Earth. Jeanne was born with a constant psychic connection with two boys she does not know. Jeanne could not stand to be touched by anyone but Hallie.

Jeanne ran away from Meld School until she was 7 years old (11 in Earth years). She ran away to be alone in the dark and warmth at the back of her mind. After she learned the names of the two boys in her head, Jeanne could get into the mind of anybody she thought about, including Hallie. And Jeanne could see through their eyes and hear through their ears and they never knew she was there.

What would you do if you could do that?
