Tally piled up a heated plate with eggs and cheese and slices of avocado, and shoved half a muffin into her mouth. Looking up at Zane, she saw that he held nothing but a cup of coffee, and she wondered if eating like a greedy pig was a bogus move. But what did it matter? She was a Crim now, she reminded herself, all voted on and full-fledged. And Zane had asked her here, after all, wanting to hang out. It was time to stop worrying about being accepted and start enjoying herself. There were worse things than sitting in a perfect park, being closely watched by a beautiful boy.

Tally wondered if any of them were Specials. Peris was nowhere to be seen. She remembered bungee jumping as an ugly, how a jacket would carry you down a slope. He must have bounced down toward the river after Croy. Croy. She wanted to say something to him… Tally struggled to her feet and faced the river. Her head throbbed, but the clarity that had come over her as she’d thrown herself off the balcony hadn’t faded. Her heart pounded as a burst of fireworks lit the sky, casting pink light and sudden shadows through the trees, every blade of grass in sharp relief.

No more bruises ever. Because it was a head wound, they gave Tally a neural exam, waving a glowing red pointer back and forth while they tracked her eyemouse. The test seemed pretty retarded, but the wardens said it proved she didn’t have a concussion or brain damage. Peris told a story about when he’d walked into a glass door at Lillian Russell Mansion and had to stay awake or die, and they all laughed. Then the wardens asked a few questions about the tricking uglies who’d come across the river that night and caused all the trouble.
