“You're staring at me."

"I am not. I'm just... thinking. Without blinking.”
Summer Lane, State of Emergency

“What’s your name?” I ask again.
“Chris,” he says. “Chris Young.”
I exhale dramatically, blowing my bangs out of my eyes.
“I can take you,” I reply. “But if you try anything, I’ll shoot you right between the eyes. Seriously.”
He almost smiles.
“Yes, ma’am.”
Summer Lane, State of Emergency

“I’ve never been on a bike,” I say. “I mean, I’ve been on a bike but not a motorcycle.”
“And why is that?” he asks.
“Bugs. They get in your mouth, right? That’s just gross.”
Chris makes a face.
“If you ride around with your mouth hanging open, I assume that could be a possibility.”
Summer Lane, State of Emergency
