Her delicate hand wipes away the tears, and she carefully takes a step forward. “I

was going to tell you.”

“Why?”

She bites her lip. “Please yell at me later. Leave me later—”

“Ems—”

“I’m in trouble.”

My skin prickles. “What?”

She looks above my head, around the room. “I tried to leave.”

“You’re forced here?”

“No.”

“No? Christ. Emma, why?”

“I saw—” She cuts herself off and steps closer. “Why are you here?”

“Work.”

She pinches her eyes closed. “Don’t leave me. No matter how mad you are, please,

please don’t leave me here alone.”

“What the hell is going on?”

Again, her eyes dart above me. She’s guarding herself, watching her words.

Knock, knock, knock.

Emma pivots to the door, trembling enough that I can see it despite her clothes.

I push through the anger, the guilt, and all of the questions about her past and

concentrate on the scared girl in front of me. “What’s going on?”

“Just act normal.”
