Enid Waters is brought to St Francis´ School in the middle of a bad winter storm by en elderly couple who have taken her in after finding her alone after a bombing in London during WWII.  Due to the severity of the storm, the headmaster insist the couple spend the night.  Enid instantly enjoys the school and while she should be sleeping she gets up to explore her new surroundings.

Thus begins this Gothic feeling tale. She comes across an old woman who asks her is she is “the one”. Not quite sure what to do, she runs away and prepares to go to bed, leaving a mess behind in the library. Enid soon discovers she has paper stuck to her foot and that she has the ability to write things down on the paper  that those things come true.

This is a short story that has an eerie Gothic feels to it. There is a lot of atmosphere and the school has a chilly creepy feel to it which I really enjoyed. The School felt like it could be a haunted house. I especially enjoyed Enid and the Headmaster, Mr. Dedalus. I was left wanting to know more..such as what did the elderly couple find odd about Enid? What will be her future? What other secrets does this school hold?
