Quote of the day:
Chapter 11: Run
“Can I fly now?” he asked. His expression was a mixture of excitement and terror. I didn’t blame him – it was a lot to take in.
I pointed toward the sky. There was a helicopter flying overhead. “Probably not a good idea.”
He watched the chopper as it disappeared over the trees. “Is that some kind of bird?”
Passage of the day:
Chapter 13: Library
Our footsteps echoed in the silence. There was a far-off hoot of an owl. That wasn’t creepy, I thought sardonically. Shadowy figures seemed to loom in and out of view as we continued down the sidewalk, though Andrew seemed oblivious. Maybe it was all in my head. Despite the strange feeling I had about the night, for some reason I really couldn’t feel completely afraid with Andrew by my side. He radiated some indefinable sense of power that immediately made me feel safe, guarded.
Still, it was hard to suppress the suspicion.
