Somehow, during this year舒this year I couldn舗t remember舒I had become a wanted man. I舗d been put on trial and convicted of murdering Alex Hauser, my former best friend. So now, not only were the Homelanders trying to kill me, but the police, led by this very angry detective named Rose, were trying to catch me and throw me into prison. There was no one I could turn to. My parents had moved away and I didn舗t know where to find them. Nobody believed me about the Homelanders舒or if they did, they thought I was one of them.

I wasn舗t sure I could. But I knew I had to try. I brought my body low to the throbbing, stuttering bike. 舡 I squinted through the onrushing wind at the intersection where the light and shadow met. I held my breath as the intersection came racing toward me. And all of a sudden, without any warning at all, another siren started. Another set of flashing lights exploded red and blue. Another cruiser was charging toward me舒this one coming toward the intersection from the side street to my right. It was moving to cut me off at the corner, to block my escape from the cops behind me and force me to stop.

His eyes were laughing. 舡 CHAPTER NINE Collision Who do you think the good guys are? That was the question. And it haunted me. It bothered me all the time. Because the policemen are the good guys, right? They舗re trying to protect people and arrest bad guys. And here they were, trying to arrest me! They thought I舗d committed murder. They thought I舗d killed my friend Alex. A jury had even convicted me. And I couldn舗t remember any of it. I couldn舗t even remember Alex getting killed. So how did I know I was innocent?
