"I just like to set things on fire," Diara answered, still kicking her leg. "Sometimes I get... distracted. I have ADHD. It makes it kind of hard to focus sometimes. Hard to focus on what I'm supposed to be focusing on, anyway. My sister tried meds for me for a while when I was younger but I can't take them any more. The fire just burns them right out. She says that probably means I'm immune to systemics and diseases and stuff, but sometimes I'd rather just be able to do what I'm supposed to."
She shrugged a shoulder. "Anyway. If you're talking to someone and you keep talking about different subjects, they just think you're kind of strange, but if you're setting things on fire and you get distracted, it can get kinda toasty, and I guess not everyone likes that. You're very easy to focus on, you know that? More so than other people."
It was actually pretty remarkable how well Kaija was holding Diara's attention. Usually she would have been on to a different subject or setting something on fire by now. Admittedly, she really wanted to set Kaija on fire, except she had promised her sister she wouldn't, and besides, she didn't really want to set Kaija on fire anyway. I would like one revenge, please. Diara wasn't even sure what she'd meant by that. Sometimes the fire was strange like that. It seemed to be very focused on Kaija.
It was kind of nice.
