They were always drifting off into the night and landing at random places, calling a hovercar to pick them up from some distant suburb or even past the city limits. Staring out over the river toward the darkness of Uglyville made Tally’s brain much less spinning. It was strange. Her time in the wild was so fuzzy, but Tally could perfectly remember being a young ugly watching the lights of New Pretty Town from her dorm window and dying to turn sixteen.
Zane’s voice was breathy in her ear, his usual cool overwhelmed. “Nice dive, though. ” Tally smiled. ” There’d been a news-ping among Tally’s messages, but she hadn’t felt up to reading. ” “Someone hacked the mail yesterday and sent out that new invitation, the one that changed the dress code to costumes. Everyone on the Valentino Bash Committee thought it was someone else who’d done it, so they all just went along. But nobody knows who actually wrote it. ” Tally blinked, the room suddenly out of focus.

They certainly hadn’t gotten as far as the Smoke, where everyone had to work all day making stuff, and growing (or even killing) their own food, and everyone stayed ugly after their sixteenth birthday. Ugly until they died, even. Of course, the Smoke didn’t exist anymore, thanks to Tally and Special Circumstances.
