Shay was giving Tally a look like she was saying something bogus again. “We couldn’t just wear bungee jackets,” Fausto said. ” “Yeah,” Peris said, but Tally could tell he saw what she meant, and was sad now. She wished she hadn’t mentioned it. Stupid Tally. The costumes really were bubbly. They put the sparklers out to save them for the party, and Shay told the hole in the wall to make two more jackets. ” Fausto complained, but it turned out not to matter. The hole wouldn’t do costume bungee jackets, in case someone forgot and jumped off something and splatted.
Shay kept asking, but the stone walls didn’t answer. “This is so missing. ” “I think they carry handphones all the time,” Fausto said. ” The problem was that in Valentino Mansion you couldn’t just call people by asking-the rooms were old and dumb, so it was like being outside. Tally placed one palm against the wall as they walked, liking how cool the ancient stones felt. For a moment, they reminded her of things out in the wild, rough and silent and unchanging. She wasn’t really dying to find the other Crims; they’d all be looking at her and wondering how to vote.
But the hole in the wall wouldn’t give them cigarettes or cars. It was fun, though, hanging out with Shay and trying things on, then snorting and giggling and tossing the costumes back into the recycler. Tally loved seeing how she looked in new clothes, even silly ones. Part of her could still remember back before, when looking in the mirror had been painful, her eyes too close together and nose too small, hair frizzy all the time. Now it was like someone gorgeous stood across from Tally, following her every move-someone whose face was in perfect balance, whose skin glowed even with a total hangover, whose body was beautifully proportioned and muscled.
