Zane always listened raptly to her Smoke stories. He’d heard them all by now, but maybe there was something more he wanted to know. “I left the night before my sixteenth birthday,” she said. ” Zane released her from his gaze and looked out across the river. ” “I was following Shay. ” “To rescue her,” he said, then trained his golden eyes on her again. ” Tally nodded carefully, last night’s champagne spinning her head. Or maybe tonight’s. She looked at the empty glass in her hand and wondered how many she’d had.
Tally didn’t want anyone lurking her, panicking her at parties, tangling her memories when she needed to be bubbly. She had to catch Croy and tell him never to follow her again. This wasn’t Uglyville or the Smoke-he had no right to be here. He had no business stepping out of her ugly past. And there was another reason she was running: the Specials. It had only taken a glimpse of them to put every cell in her body on high alert. Their inhuman speed repelled her, like watching a cockroach skitter across a plate.
But nobody knows who actually wrote it. ” Tally blinked, the room suddenly out of focus. Dizzying was right. The world seemed to turn around her, as if she were inside the stomach of something big and out of control. Only uglies did stuff like hack mail. And she could only think of one person who would want the Valentino party turned into a costume bash: Croy with his cruel-pretty mask and weird offers. Which meant it all had to do with Tally Youngblood. ” “Totally. ” She nodded, feeling her head begin to throb again.
