Storyboard Text

  • So, Jamie tells me you moved here at the start of the summer. The change of subject surprises me. "Yeah." "He didn't tell me you were so pretty." He is leaning closer and closer. I close my eyes and feel his lips brush mine.
  • Who is Spence and why is he here and how am I supposed to face my brother after his friend's hands have been in my hair and his lips on mine and...
  • I want my bed and my mothers room. I want to go back to the demons I already know how to handle, so I spin and start across the clearing, back toward the trees and the beach and the party. "Grace, wait up," he says "I'm sorry I didn't mean-"
  • Even when the figure yells, "Leave her alone," I don't let myself believe he's really here. It's not until Spence turns, too, and looks at the shadow, that I allow myself to say, "Alexei?"
  • "She's not your responsibility ." "Don't tell me what she is," Alexei says, spinning on him. "I know Gracie better then you ever will." "Well you've never kissed me," I mutter half under my breath. "But evidently you didn't see that part," I say as Alexei turns to ice. "He kissed you?" "Let's go find Jamie!" I say too cheerfully, bolting  for the beach. "Grace!" Spence yells, chasing after me, but I'm moving fast over the uneven ground
  • I need a distraction. But the pause is all it takes for Alexei to reach me. "He kissed you?" "I'm fine!" I shout, but it's too late. Spence had caught up with us and Alexei isn"t looking for an explanation. He turns and pulls back his arm in one smooth motion, dropping Spence to the ground with a single blow.
