Page 56

A small trickle of blood begins to leak from Lacey's nose, trailing red down over her lips before dripping onto her lap. I call her name and she reaches to touch the blood with her fingers. Her eyes begin to stream tears when she sees the crimson streaked across her hand. "Fuck," she says, blood sputtering from between her lips.

Chapter One

James stared straight ahead, with no immediate reaction to what I've just told him. I think he's in shock. I follow his gaze out of the windshield to the empty parking lot of the convenience store off the highway. The building is abandoned, plywood covering the windows, black graffiti tagged on the white siding. In a way, James and I have been abandoned too, our former selves boarded up and locked away while the world moves on around us. We were supposed to accept that change, follow the rules. Instead we broke all of them.
