I put one foot in front of the other. The halls have cleared out. I must be walking slowly, but Carly will wait for me in the parking lot. I just want to go home and crawl into my sweats with a cup of hot cocoa.
I step around the corner and jerk back to press against the wall. Taylin is talking to Luke at his locker. I can hear them easily.
“It’s her, isn’t it?” she hisses like a viper.
“I don’t know,” he answers evenly. “Something’s there. I feel…different.” He hesitates. “Happy.”
“Crazy,” Taylin says and I hear her flop back against the metal doors.
Who are they talking about? I remain still, my eyes scanning the now-empty hallway. I stare at my notebook to eavesdrop without looking quite so obvious.
“Shit, Lucas…Mathias and I just found you again. We don’t want to lose you.”
“You’re not going to lose me.”
“How do you know that? If you kill–”
“I’m not going to kill anyone,” he whispers.
Kill? I can’t swallow. My mouth is the Sahara. I lean back against the cool locker doors and hope they haven’t seen me. Who could Taylin think he’s tempted to kill? The harsh brutality in his dark eyes yesterday flashes in the back of my closed eyelids.
