Chapter 87 Answers
- As I forced one foot in front of the other the cold night air kissed at my own wounds. It tickled and a shiver went down my spine. I couldn’t feel anything and that probably wasn’t good, but I couldn’t find it in me to care. The material of my shirt clung to the skin on my back. The more steps I took the colder my heart grew.

I grimaced as her hands dug into the back of my neck.
