Additional info for Hunting Lila
Alex was holding me by the top of my arms where he’d caught me. I’d crashed right into his chest. My hands were splayed against him. He rocked back on his heels, not letting go of me. I was thinking I had to move my hands but, much like my legs earlier, they wouldn’t obey. Here he was, literally at my fingertips; I had dreamed about that – though there had been fewer clothes in my dream – for a long time now. I could feel the muscles of his chest and, yep, they lived up to the fantasy. My head barely came up to the height of his shoulders.
But instead of waking up as I always did, my viewpoint switched so I wasn’t in front of her anymore, I was above her, watching her die from a distance. But then I’d seen myself, in school uniform, with ripped tights and a pale, wide-eyed face, holding the same knife I’d nearly taken the mugger’s eye out with. The blood was trickling down its serrated edge and I felt it dripping warm and sticky over my hand. Then I woke up. I ran my fingers through my hair, pulling out the hairband that had come loose.
Is it big? ’ ‘Two hundred square miles. ’ I thought about that for a bit. ’ ‘No, our unit doesn’t. ’ The border? With Mexico, I assumed, not Orange County. I wondered why that was important. The only thing I could think of was drugs, or maybe illegal immigrants, but I didn’t ask as I knew Jack wouldn’t give me a straight answer. He always changed the subject when I asked what his unit actually did. I knew they hadn’t been deployed overseas, thank God, but it seemed a little weird that they’d gone through all that training just to sit around in sunny California, kicking back in civilian clothes and driving fast cars.
