The Town XIISo far, the plan had been working. They had been doing it for five months. Five months, and they still hadn't been caught. The night before, Azriel had come over for their book meeting. Jen had all the books packed away in her purse. She sat at the cheaply made table, and tried to eat her breakfast. Her father had just left a minute before. Jen remembered there being something about him being reassigned to some new job, but she didn't really pay attention. She never paid attention to anyone any more, except Azriel. There was no point, she would be caught, and most definitely banished. That was the only punishment. They had stop full-blown exe
The Town IX"A...a library?"The Town IX2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Yes. Do you know what a library is? Or, should I say, was?"
"Well, yes. It's a place where the ancients would store books and let others borrow them."
"Wow. Not very many people know that. Well, come on. You know how I told you about how I used to have to cut through someone's backyard to get here?"
"Um, well, they don't really care for me that much, so let's get inside before the wife comes out." Azriel began walking to the door.
Jen begsn coughing the second she entered the building. "Oh, sorry," Azriel said as he began wiping dust off some windows in the back wall with his hand, "It's a little dusty."

"I've been out of school for three months. You?"
"It's only been a few days."
"Wow, you're lucky. At least you found someone to be with. You know how I found this place? I decided to start taking a look around uptown. Actually, I had never been around this area before in my life."(He sure is talkative) That wasn't hard to believe. Most jobs and schools were downtown. Most of the clubs and restraunts (only for teenagers) were there. And the rule was, if you didn't have to be there, you shouldn't be there.
"So, what exactly is uptown that's so interesting? It's just a residential area,
The Town XShe had waited for an hour. Jen looked down at her watch for the 20th time. 12:25. Late, he was just late. He was not bringing the cops. Jen had this little thing where two voices in her head argued over what to do. She knew one was her conscious and the other was "her" voice. So far, all she had found out was that she had a mean conscious.The Town X2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I thought this was a bad idea...
Oh, not you again.
What? I'm sorry, but I just think that was extremely stupid! You didn't even know him for more than three days! How could you just invite him over like that? Stupid, stupid...
I don't think he'll turn me in.
Hmm, let's say he does. First, you told h
The Town XIVJen stood outside in the cold. The sky was overcast, and the wind was strong. She was in a line that reached down the block. There was a tall girl in front of her, a pretty, smiling blonde. It was rare to find blondes in the town, Jen couldn't help thinking. The girl was chatting excitedly with some of her friends in front of her. Yeah, right. , Jen thought, Let me guess, this girl honestly thinks she is going to get assigned the man she chooses? Please! . Jen hadn't been in a good mood all week.The Town XIV2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She kept thinking about how once she got married, she would never get to be with Azriel as much again. They had decided to meet at least once a w

"Let me repeat myself. You where in my room the other night. Why?" She liked him and all, but if he stared at her when she slept, well, that was a deal-breaker. She didn't associate with creeps.
"If you saw me, why didn't you say anything?"
"Aha! So you admit it! Well, last night, my father mentioned he saw a light on in my room. I never turn on my lights. So, again, what where you doing there. I know it was you."
"Listen, it's not what you think..."
"Really?" Jen's voice had a sarcastic twinge to it.
"Yeah. You see, they're upping patrols at night for some reason."
"Wait...are you saying...?"
"The other night, I almost got
