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. Peris had gone with other girls, and Tally had dealt with it and tried to do the same, but their friendship had always been the main thing in both their lives. Not anymore, apparently. “If he’d been my boyfriend, I don’t think I could have done it, you know? I wouldn’t have wanted him to see my face. But because we’re friends, I thought maybe .

I should tell you something. That night, when you met me, I kind of promised my friend Peris I wouldn’t take any big risks. ” “Who cares if they get mad? ” Shay stopped bouncing. ” “I guess I haven’t either. 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. But we’re not going to get caught. ” She laughed.
