"David, what if your mother had found the cure? Would Zane and I be in this mess?" Tally asked David.

"Tally, if the cure wasn't found there would have been no reason for you to go to Prettytown." he replied.

He's right. I wouldn't have a reason. Then I wouldn't had met Zane.

"Tally, there's something I have to tell you." David told her.

"What? Is Zane alright? I just checked on him a couple of hours ago."

"He's fine. But what I want to tell you has something to do with you."

Me? What on earth could it be?

"What is it, David?" she was scared.

"I think.. well, um..."

"Just say it. If it has to include you and me. I have to know."

"I think I'm in love with you." he blurted.

She closed her eyes. This was shocking.

How could David love me? It's my fault that his father is dead. The fact that him and his mother are always on the run. How could he?

"David, how can you love me? It's my fault your father's dead. You should hate me. I betrayed you and Shay. How could you love me?"

"I just do, Tally Youngblood. I forgive you and I love you."

The only problem is.. I love Zane.
