|While hunting around on Pinterest for a pic for this post, |
I came across this one and happened to click through

Can I just say they are THE cutest pics I've ever seen?

Chapter 2: Ari
“It was my choice to join the Sary. I died and was left with two options: join the Sary or never obtain a body of flesh and blood. Never know taste, touch, sound, smell. It wasn't a difficult choice, but I sometimes believe I may have been too hasty in my decision.”
He can’t honestly know the truth. It was impossible. Leaving him behind in the classroom, it was too easy to convince myself.
Without thinking, my fingers reached for the index-cards crumpled in my front pocket. They outlined my job here—not the kind of job I got paid for, unless you counted that I was allowed to stay on earth to complete it. I didn’t.
“Assignment: Thomas (Tom) Henniker, age 18. Freshman at the University of Montana, majoring in genetics. Concerns: has recently found possible source of information regarding the Sary. You are to investigate what he knows. If he knows the truth, you are to ensure he has no means to prove this to anyone. If assignment is unwilling to be dissuaded from the truth, and is a possible leak of information, then you are to report back immediately so fate can take its course.”
Translation: figure out if he knew anything about the Sary.
