She looks up at me, speaking softly. We’re a lot alike, you and I.
I threw my hands up. Oh, really? Funny, I’ve never heard that before.Once again, thoughts flickered over his face, secrets shadowing his eyes.
If that’s true, tell me. What’s going on?He looked away. I can’t answer that.I laughed morbidly. No, of course, you can’t.
My temper frayed, entirely unleashed. That’s not fair? I poked him in the chest. What’s fair about me being subjected to more Hawk insanity? What’s fair about having the love of my life shot in front of me? What’s fair about waiting to die?!You know what; I’m done. Shaking my head, I brushed past him into the corridor. Just take me to them like a good minion and get out of my sight.

Every time I looked at the old bat, I got the feeling she was the meddler in all of this. She was the reason Cut was the way he was. She was the reason why Jasmine was disabled and Jethro and Kes were dead. I guessed she was also the reason why Jethro never mentioned his mother.Hey, Ava. Good to see you again. He smiles at me. How’s the patient? He jerks his head at Gabe.
Frustrating. Annoying. Bitchy. Aside from that, he’s fine. I give a light, teasing smile even though, inside, I feel anything but light. I feel like I’m about to climb out of my skin.Funny. Speedy’s a comedian nowadays, Gabe says dryly.
Are you joining us for breakfast? Tate asks me, holding up a brown bag with the name of some deli on it. I brought pastries and muffins.Sounds delicious. Sure, I’ll join you, if you don’t mind?
