She turns her head, staring at the gun thats pointed at her head.
Yes, I do, Harper said, and part of her actually hoped he would.She weaved her way through the picnic, and it didnt take her long to find Marcy. She was sitting at a picnic table with Gemma and Alex, which wouldve been nice if Alexs friend Luke Benfield hadnt joined them.
Harper actually slowed down when she saw Luke. And not just because things were weird between them. Whenever Luke and Alex got together, they tended to go into computer-geek mode, talking only in tech terms that Harper didnt understand.So when are you gonna make an honest woman out of Gemma here and win her a prize? Marcy was asking Alex when Harper reached the table.Um… Alexs cheeks darkened a little at the question, and he rubbed his hands together nervously.
I told him not to win me a prize, Gemma cut in, rescuing him from embarrassment. Im a modern girl. I can win my own prizes.You probably stand a better chance since youre the athlete, Marcy said, popping a cheese curd in her mouth. Alex looks like he throws like a girl.
Luke chuckled at that, as if he stood any chance of throwing better than Alex. He twisted the huge Green Lantern ring he wore on his finger and laughed so hard he snorted a little.
Like you can talk, Marcy, Harper said and sat down on the bench next to her, across from Luke. I saw the way you tossed a beanbag. Alex could probably kick your butt.Shell kill you if you stay, Gemma warned him. You need to leave with us, right now. Were going to find my sister, and well find a way to break free from the sirens. But you have to come with us.
Gemma held out her hand to his, meaning to grab it so she could drag him along with her. She didnt really have time to stand here and argue with him anymore, but she wanted to help him. Taking him with her would really piss off Penn, but he knew Penn better than Gemma. He might know some of her weaknesses and could help fight against her.Sawyer reached out and just about took her hand, when Lexi surfaced in the water nearby. Her golden hair shimmered under the sparkling lights of the fireworks above them, and she pulled herself out of the water in one graceful move.
That cant be good, Alex said.Her sundress clung to her body as she walked up behind Sawyer, and he dropped his outstretched arm back to his side.
