From the moment I met Christina Georgia, I knew why Mr. Bradshaw had chosen her. She was incredibly smart and thoughtful, and her emerald green eyes were huge and wise. Her wispy blond hair was beautiful and shoulder-length, and her bubblegum pink lips stood out on her pale face. She was awesome, and we were friends after about two minutes of talking.

I was going to die. I was going to die, right now, right here, before I even had a chance to thoroughly apologize to anyone for what I'd done... before I had a chance to forgive myself. I wasn't even going to leave with a bang, one final act of dignity or at least the thought that I still belonged somewhere; I would die without even the simple acceptance that I'd done everything I could. Tears welled in my eyes, but I didn't let them fall. I didn't want to die crying.
I love you, Tess, ' he told me, tightening his arms around me as if he would never let go. He'd better not. We'd never let go of each other - not Jayden and me, and not the rest of us. We would always be together; we would always be a team. No matter what happened. No matter what we went through. No matter where our lives took us. We would always be a family.
For once in my life, I wished Mr. Bradshaw had slipped a tracker into my shoe or my coat pocket. I wished that he was still keeping tabs on me, even when I told him that I didn't need him to, or that I could take care of myself. Because the truth was that I knew I'd always need help along the way. I needed help now, and at some point in my life I'd need help again.
Taylor, listen to me. I could tell you that it's okay. That she wasn't a wonderful person, or I didn't love her. I could tell you that she's happier now, and her life would've been sad and filled with pain and longing to see her love again. I could say that I'm not struggling with her death, as well as the death of the hope that she could once again be part of my life. But instead I'll just say that I'm sad, too, sweetheart. That way I can spare you the struggle of detecting the lie in my words.

That's not necessary, ' Mr. Bradshaw said, 'although you are all perfectly welcome in the guest rooms upstairs, I won't ask you to lie to your-' 'Mr. Bradshaw.' Nathan grinned. 'You've been asking us to lie to our parents from the moment we each set foot in this house. We're spies; we'll all find excuses to stay here. No one wants to leave the only place in the city where the Pentagon won't dare enter. Not tonight. Not after what happened.

Why would you tell us the truth? If Christina really wasn't here, you'd tell us she was, to stall us from finding her. If James taught us one thing, it's how to detect a lie. You just want us to leave so you can get her to talk. By the way, good luck with that - Ida can't even get her to admit that she stole her cousin's candy at Halloween last year. And that was pretty obvious.
