Alex stood on the roof of Griffin Hall for what would be the last time and looked out over the grounds of Wood Point. From here, all of the buildings were visible—and bustling with activity, even this early. Parents loading their cars with their student’s baggage. Kids horsing around or exchanging numbers. One last kiss with their latest beau. He had done none of that. The few people he knew well enough to say goodbye to were going with him as part of Kane’s hunting party. Except for her. But he’d already said his goodbyes and he wasn’t up for doing it again. Damn, but it’d been hard to walk away last night. Especially after the way she’d thrown herself into his arms. Her dress bunched up around her thighs and tears streaking down her cheeks … he couldn’t get the image out of his head. He wouldn’t for a long time, he was sure. In some ways, he hated the way she affected him. She was nothing like what he should want. But it’s not like he’d been able to control it. Just then, the door to Lexington Hall opened and she walked out into the filtered sunlight of the courtyard. Cambria was beside her. He’d heard they were spending the summer together. His chest pinged with jealousy. Part of him wished it were him she would be spending time with this summer—but at least she had a friend. She deserved some fun, some down time after everything that’d happened the past few weeks. From his perch on the roof, he watched them cross the courtyard, smiling and talking, as they headed for closing assembly. He knew the bus would be waiting on him by now but he couldn’t take his eyes off her. The cheap, black gown she wore did nothing to diminish her beauty. Her tanned skin gleamed smooth and fresh and her hair glistened in the sunlight. She looked untouchable. Or at least, that’s how it felt as she passed through the doorway leading to the auditorium and disappeared from view. It felt final. He hated the ache it left in his ribs. From the other side of Griffin Hall, a horn sounded. He sighed and finally turned for the stairs.
