It was funny how little I knew about Dean.
In the chaos of what had happened to us—discovering empaths and our
powers and almost getting killed—I had grown to feel so much for him, but
I didn’t even know his last name until I saw it on his hospital chart. Dean
Lasslow. And he was apparently eighteen, a year older than me. When
Mom and Dad agreed to let him stay out our place for a while, they started
making arrangements and it turned out he’d dropped out of school halfway
through his final year to work. As soon as Mom learned that, she got
straight to action and enrolled Dean at my school so he could graduate with
me. Apparently, there was no way I was using any of the recent events as an
excuse to skip my normal education.
Dean left hospital with strict orders not to lift anything heavy or perform
strenuous exercise. He was given a huge list of post-hospital-care
instructions about how to change the dressings on his wounds, plus a large
paper bag full of medication, and that was pretty much it. He had almost

Mom and Dad had offered to pick up some of Dean’s things for him, but he

She always preferred to focus on the positive. But from the way Dad moved
so quickly to reassure her now, and the dark blue chill of sadness that
surrounded her, I wondered how many of her childhood memories were
being relived. I wanted to hug her for any pain she was feeling, and for who
she turned out to be despite it all.
“Wait here. I’ll be right back,” Dean said. He stepped gingerly out of the
car, the still-healing bullet wound making such movement difficult. I
wanted to hug him too.
Dean didn’t even make it to the front door before it flew open, metal screen
clattering against the side of the trailer home. His dad burst out, like he’d
been standing there waiting the entire time Dean had been in hospital.
Standing there waiting, and drinking.
Dean had left his car door open, and we could hear every slurry word.
“Gone f’weeks, and look at you—nothing wrong with you. Think you’re
just waltzing back in after the trouble you caused? Sending cops banging
