Bess could be right, I thought. But when I saw a stream of bright red blood beneath George’s ankle, I changed my mind.

“That’s no sting,” I decided.

“Well, it was either that soda can ring, broken glass,” George said, her face turning ghost white, “or…or…”

“Or what?” I asked.

“Or that hypodermic needle?” George gulped.

Leaning forward, I clinked glasses with my BFFs, Bess Marvin and George Fayne. The three of us were lounging on a deck overlooking the most awesome moonlit beach we had ever seen in our lives.”
