Tally nodded, hearing the others’ slow, calm breaths through the skintenna link. It was just like Shay had promised: The Cutters were connected, an unbreakable clique. She would never be alone again, even when it felt like something was missing inside her. Even when she felt the lack of Zane like head-spinning panic. She plunged through the branches, following Shay into the flashing lights. Tally’s memories were perfect now, not like when she’d been a bubblehead, confused and muddled all the time.

Something whistled past, close enough to ruffle her hair. Twenty meters away, one of the arrows connected, and an electric buzz shot through her hearing like a network overload, choking off a grunt from Tachs. Then an arrow struck Fausto, and Tally heard him gasp before his feed went silent. She scrambled for cover behind the nearest tree, hearing two bodies thudding against the hard ground.

Uneven dental caps blunted her razor-sharp teeth, and even her tattooed hands were sprayed with fake skin. A glance in the mirror had shown Tally how she looked: just like an ugly.
