Home sweet hideout. That’s how I feel about being back in LA. It’s frustrating. And funny. Maybe more funny. We traveled so far, worked through so many pieces of this super long puzzle, only to find ourselves right where we started.
Who knows, maybe that’s not necessarily true. We know more now than when we started. We know about Lifesblood Labs and their affiliation with the Order. We know the mythology of the Trait-Positive gene more clearly. And we know that someone has the means to abolish it. All of this just proves the Cure really may be out there; something to be found; something desired not just by us, but our enemies. The closer we get to it, the more intensely they seem to pursue us.
I don’t know who left the note for me in that ladies room. I saw some theories on the board here. Beaumont perhaps. But I don’t buy it. I think if he was still on the scene, he’d have tried to contact Maggie by now (given how obviously he drools over her in that security cam footage). And both Jonas and I have been around Maggie enough to know whether she’s in contact with someone... I hope.
There’s something about her I still can’t trust. Something I can’t put my finger on. Maybe it’s the all too convenient amnesia about her little jailbreak. Or maybe it’s the way she’s twisting Jonas’s head with those dainty, fluttering eyelashes (insert gag here).
I’m not ready to lead this charge. That falls on Jonas’s shoulders. Fortunately, he might be starting to come around to that. He’s arranged a meet for us in the city on Thursday. Says we can figure out a plan once its safe enough to be together again. Reed just e-mailed me the details.
Reed... He’s like a kid in a candy shop out here. Stars in his eyes, disposable camera in hand, mouth CONSTANTLY agape. It’d be cute if it weren’t so juvenile.
Oh who am I kidding? It is cute. And I hate admitting that. Starting to feel a little bad about the slap, but I don’t think it was undeserved. Maybe it just made things even between us and I should let the anger go--
Crap. Jonas e-mail. Just popped up in my inbox. “Your Eyes Only” it seems. Let’s see what this is all about. I’ll catch up with you guys later. Thanks for listening :)
