Eleanor blamed it on the Glitch. When she was five years old, she fell off a horse and landed badly on her head. She was in the hospital for a stretch and it took a while to gain back her confidence around horses, but she forgot all about the incident itself. What stuck with her was the Glitch, as she called it.
There were times when Eleanor got brief glimpses of things that weren't there. Moving shadows, streaking colors, sometimes she even saw half-perceived glimpses of people and animals. It manifested as movement in her peripheral vision and as soon as she focused on the Glitch, it would be gone. It wasn't always something that she saw. Sometimes it was a sound or even a smell that couldn’t be explained.
