The head rolled o his shoulders and halted at my feet with a thump.
Goosebumps erupted at the top of my spine and spread down my body.
I should have been familiar with the scene. I should remember something I
had lived and was watching on a screen. But I didn’t. So when silence fell,
plunging the Miami Flames’ facilities into a sudden vacuum, my heart dropped
to my stomach. And when the voice of one of the camera guys was caught by the
mic asking in a whisper, “Dude, are you recording this?” I was pretty sure I
Oh God. What—
The top of Paul’s head popped out of the headless neckline of Sparkles, the
mascot’s costume, and a wave of panic washed over me.
Paul blinked, anger and shock meshing in his expression before spitting a
“What the fuck is wrong with you?”
My lips parted, as if some instinctual part of my brain wanted to answer him.
Now. Even when it wouldn’t make a dierence. “I—”
The image on the screen froze, forcing my gaze up to the face of the man
holding the iPad that had reproduced the thirty seconds that had been missing

my whole life. “It’s not every day we get the head of communications of an MLS
club gunning for the team’s mascot in six-inch heels.” I sensed—heard—that
smile widening, and I felt my face turning to stone. “A shocking turn, surely. But

that.” Those pale blue eyes met mine, sharp and unforgiving. Which wasn’t a
