“Shh.” He put his fingers on my lips. “When I found out the plane got fixed, I kept wanting to tell you, but it made me too sad. I don't like sad. I’ve been wracking my brain ever since I met you how I can rescue you from this crazy island. ”
Dylan nodded. “Wasn’t it obvious? It’s not that easy for me to sneak out every night. I could get in major trouble from my dad. But especially after everything you told me about your bounding—”
“Yeah, whatever. Absolutely, babe, let’s do it! I love it. I… love you. You’ll love Hawaii, I mean, the Outlands, trust me.”
“What about your dad?”
Dylan puffed air between his lips. “I’m almost eighteen. I’ve been wanting to move out. I have big-time plans for making cash. I’ll make it work.”
We kissed more, but we were both getting chilly so we moved back to the shore. The stars looked like tiny shards of diamonds, so bright they pricked my eyes.
