Red on Yellow, Kill a Fellow

Amy loves her daemon. Cecil curls around her like a necklace of rubies, citrine, and onyx.

Her daemon settled at sixteen. She's kissing Jackie Taylor in the long grass under bleachers and then more.

And then more.

The cheerleaders hiss at her for the rest of the term. The priests and the nuns frown, and cross themselves as she passes. She relates to Hester Prynn.

She tells Josh one night. A moment of weakness on her part.

Sleepily, he remarks, "You shed your skin."

Red on black, friend of Jack
