            The first time a demon lazily sailed over a baby Rin as though he wasn’t there, Shiro was overjoyed.  The seal worked!  Then, he hurried to banish the demon and comfort a crying Yukio.

            The second time demons ignored Rin, Shiro was confused.  Rin’s rampage in the kindergarten classroom should have attracted something.  Especially since Yukio’s neighboring classroom had had a flood of coaltar the same morning.

            The third time, Shiro was enraged.  Watching a hobgoblin charge past an oblivious Rin to lunge at Yukio, he finally realized the truth.

           Rin hadn’t been made invisible; Yukio had become a beacon.
