promise to go with me."
"No," I say, almost before she's finished her sentence.
I rap my cane once against the ground. "Well, for starters, despite
the fact that there are tortoises that could surpass your sorry excuse for a
jog, I'm in no shape to accompany even the most pathetic of runners."
"What a handy skill you have of overloading a sentence with
insults," she says as she reaches up to adjust her ponytail. "That must be
helpful what with your thriving social life and all."
I thump my cane against the ground again, studying her. "Must be
nice, picking on the cripple."
Olivia rolls her eyes. "Please. Your soul's more crippled than your

anywhere close enough to find out. I've gotten good at shutting people out
by pushing them away . . . being as nasty as possible until they reach their
breaking point. But with her? It's different.
