I shivered, but I wasn’t cold.
Just take some pain medication if it hurts that much.And I’m five years old again. Why exactly do I act like a child around this chick? I’m three seconds away from pulling her hair and pushing her to the floor.
But, even still, I like arguing with her. It’s fun. And kind of hot.Will you argue with me? It’s what’s been distracting me from the pain this whole time.So, you’d rather argue with me than take pain pills?
I already figured that. I’ll make you a deal. You tell me why you won’t take pain pills, and I’ll argue with you to your heart’s content.No way am I telling her that. I don’t tell anyone anything about myself because, if I did, I’d be reading about it on Radar Online an hour later.

Vaughn picked up where she trailed off. The docs’ faces, Threads. You could tell they didn’t have much hope.The joy of knowing Jethro and Kestrel were rescued punctured, deflating like a hot air balloon, crashing faster toward Earth. So…they might still… I couldn’t finish.
Jaz smiled tightly, her eyes glittering with unshed tears. Let’s focus on the positive. They’re away from Hawksridge with people who know what they’re doing. That’s all we have.Terrible silence fell, like a curtain already stealing Jethro and Kes from us.
