I know it’s got nothing to do with me—it’s a poetry thing—but in a way, I feel like they’re applauding my decision to leave. Just call me hypersensitive. Or self-absorbed. 22 Outside, it’s mostly dark. Streetlamps light up this part of Main Street, but farther down, they’re either broken or nonexistent. Most of the shops down there are closed. So of course that’s where I go. I need to walk; I can’t stand still. The heat I felt earlier dissipated along with my anger. I’m cold again, almost shivering—but no matter how high I zip my coat up, how far I pull my hat down, I can’t warm up.
My cell died; I couldn’t call. ” I wish I could tell them I saw a woman in danger, and that’s why I risked it—but none of the info is ﬁt to confess. The old woman I tried to save was a shape-shifter, for cry ing out loud. The whole thing was a setup. What was I supposed to tell the police? I’m not hurt, other than the frostburn on my cheek. Nothing was stolen. The safe was ripped out of the ground—which is the one thing that points to a robbery and saves my ass, since no one thinks I was responsible for that.
My exciting days of fake-studying at the library? The awesome group of friends I don’t have? So I force myself to walk away, back down the dark part of Main Street, where I almost hope something hap pens that is my business—a mugging, someone starting a ﬁght—so I can make a difference. Bust in and be someone. Get my blood ﬂowing. Because I’m freezing; my body’s shaking; my breath—I blow it out, fwoosh—is like smoke 28 in the air. I’m storming downhill, hands stuffed in my pockets and balled into ﬁsts.
