Girl Who Chased the Moon



  When Sawyer's stomach growled, he laughed. "I haven't had anything to eat since the cake I had for lunch," he said sheepishly.
  "You had cake for lunch?"
  "I'd have cake all the time if I could. You're going to laugh at this, but I'll tell you anyway. You know how some people have a sweet tooth? Well, I have a sweet sense. When I was a little boy, I could be playing across town and know exactly when my mother took a cake out of the oven. I could see the scent, how it floated through the air. All I had to do was follow it home. I will fiercely deny that if you ever say anything.
