I’ve been wanting to show you this since we met. ” Tally swallowed, wishing she’d told the whole truth about that night—about how it had all just sort of happened. Shay seemed to think she was the world’s biggest daredevil now. “Well, I mean, that alarm thing was partly an accident. ” “I mean, maybe we should wait. ” “Oh, that’s right,” Shay said. “A couple of months and we’ll be stuck inside the river. ” Tally snorted. ” “Doing what you’re supposed to do is always boring. ” “I can,” Tally said quietly.

I’ve got friends too, over here. I mean, they were friends. ” She looked up. “I was always the youngest, you know? ” Shay nodded. ” “Yeah. ” “Wow, that’s crazy. ” Tally shook her head.

But maybe they wouldn’t tell us if it had. ” “Maybe he made you promise to take it easy so you wouldn’t bother him anymore. ” Tally tried to answer, but her throat was dry. “Listen, if you don’t want to come, that’s fine,” Shay said. “I mean it, Squint.
