My mind was set. There was no backing out now, not when lives hung in the balance, and so many had already been lost.
I knew the risks. They might hate me. They might shun me, run from me. But I was behind all that now. It was for Ally's sake that I would do this, and Laura's, Ellie's, Jerry's, Jade's, Nick's, and Julianna's. Not mine.
I scrolled through my cell phone contacts until I found Jerry's number. I sent him a text that read, Need 2 tell u something. Get Ellie, Nick, Juli, meet me @ subway station. Ethan.
I had to tell them my side of the story.
I slipped my phone into my pocket and left for the subway station.
