“I start to grab it so I can it pass it to him. He reaches for it at the same time. Our fingers touch, and the moment they do the fluorescent lights overhead flicker and then fizzle out.

Everyone moans, even though we can all still see. There's enough light from outside filtering in, just not enough for us to really focus on the finer details.

Nick's fingers stroke mine lightly, so lightly that I'm almost not sure the touch is real. My insides flicker like the art room lights. They do not, however, fizzle. I turn my head to look him in the eye.

He leans over and whispers, "It will be hard to be just your friend.”
Carrie Jones, Need

Carrie Jones
“He has an armload of irises and daisies and tulips and he presents them to me. "I didn't know what kind of flowers you like."

"I like them all."

"Yeah?"

"Yeah."

He tries to hand them to me, but then remembers the cast. "I'll put them in water."

Betty swoops in the room ridiculously fast and she grabs the flowers out of Nick's hands. "I'll take care of them. You lovebirds just sit on the couch and think swooning things at each other.”
Carrie Jones, Need

Carrie Jones, Need

Carrie Jones
“Where'd the dog go?" I ask, sounding panicky.
"That wasn't a dog, Zara," he says, words whisper strong.
I jerk my head up. "What was it then? A cat? A gerbil? A geriatric hamster?”
Carrie Jones, Need

Carrie Jones
“Pixies have to be invited in, like vampires. I read it on the Internet.
Well, there you go, I mutter. Then it must be true.”

“I stare up at Nick. "You're late."
.... "I had things to take care of," he says, all growly, looking away from me and staring Ian down. They do the whole I'm alpha - No, I'm alpha thing, with the staring and pulling the shoulders back and posturing.
Devyn whispers to Issie, loud enough for us to hear. "They're so sad sometimes."
She whispers back, "I know.”

“Do you like me? You know, like me like me?"
I cringe the moment I ask and cover my face with my hands. The smell of blood and trail dirt wafts into my nose. Something sinks inside me. What is it? Oh, I know, any dignity I could possibly have left.”
Carrie Jones, Need

Carrie Jones
“Issie asks, "Why iron?"
Devyn goes into full geek mode and answers before I can, "Iron is one of the last elements that is created by stellar nucleosynthesis."
I have no idea what he just said.
Neither does anone else.”
Carrie Jones, Need

Carrie Jones

“the PE teachers are into strudel," Issie says. '"I'm not sure why. It's so gooey."
Gooey is good," Nick says.
"Seriously?" I ask him. "You like strudel."
"I like a lot of things that aren't good for me." He smiles slowly at me. My mouth must be hanging open because he starts laughing.
"You made her blush!" Issie says. "Don't blush, Zara. He's just teasing.”
Carrie Jones, Need
