Do You Ever Get That Feeling?

“Anna, please don’t cry.” I begged her. “I don’t think I can take it.”
It was selfish of me I know, but if she had burst into tears I’m quite sure I would have followed.
“I’m sorry James.” Anna said,sighing. “It’s just that everyone here thinks that I’m gonna save them, but I don’t know how. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do!”
“Don’t worry about it.” I said surprised at the words coming out of my own mouth. “We will figure it out eventually, and when we do, I guarentee you’ll be able to do what you have to.”
Anna looked at me gratefully. “Thank you, James.”
I kissed her on the cheek. “Sure. Get some rest, I’ll be back later.”
I got up and left the room.
Dailey was standing just outside the door waiting for me. “James…” he hesitated.
I closed Anna’s door. “Yes? What?” I prodded.
“Do you ever get the feeling that you know things that you shouldn’t know and you don’t know how you figured it out?” he asked.
I took a moment to process Dailey’s slightly jumbled sentence. “Sometimes.” I said.
