How do you not have a right to feel bad? Youre entitled to feel however you feel.
Then Gemma realized she didnt see Alex, either. Hed been right behind her a few seconds ago, but when she darted through the crowd, she mustve lost him.Dammit. Gemma rubbed her forehead and regretted bringing him. Getting Alex killed in an attempt to protect her sister wasnt exactly a winning situation.
She turned back around toward the docks, trying to figure out where to look, and Sawyer was standing right behind her. So close, she nearly bumped into him when she turned around.Sawyer! Gemma gasped. You scared me.Good. He smiled, and before she could react, he grabbed her, clamping one hand over her mouth to keep her from calling out for help or singing.
Theyre here, Harper said, doing her best to keep the panic from her voice, as she locked eyes with Penn.What? Daniel leaned down to hear her better.
Theyre here! Harper repeated, shouting this time.
Daniel looked up, and then he saw Penn, too. Oh, shit.Penn. Gemma was sure of it, just by the way Penn moved away from the two girls. Her long black hair hung down behind her, and the wind blew it back. She walked with startling grace and purpose, her eyes straight ahead.
From this distance in the dark, Penn shouldnt have noticed her, but Gemma could feel her eyes boring straight through her, sending chills down her spine.Alex, Gemma said in a voice that barely sounded like her own. I think we should go.
What? Alex replied dazedly, and that was when Gemma realized how far hed swum away from her.Alex, come on. I think were bothering them. We should go.
