show. They were too big to play Crossroads. Even if they
did come here, how could Lilith afford a ticket when her
family barely had enough money for food?

She didn’t notice when she tumbled into a song. It
wasn’t fully formed yet— just her sorrow melding with her
guitar— but a few minutes later, when she stopped sing-
ing, someone behind her started clapping.

“Whoa.” Lilith spun around to face a black- haired boy
leaning against a nearby tree. He wore a leather jacket,
and his black jeans disappeared into scuffed combat boots.

“Hey,” he said as if he knew her.
Lilith didn’t answer. They didn’t know each other.

Why was he talking to her?
He studied her intensely, his gaze penetrating. “You’re

still beautiful,” he said softly.
“You’re . . . really creepy,” Lilith replied.
“You don’t recognize me?” He sounded disappointed.
Lilith shrugged. “I don’t watch America’s Most

Wanted.”
The boy looked down, laughed, then nodded at her

guitar. “Aren’t you afraid of making that worse?”
She flinched, confused. “My song?”
“Your song was a revelation,” he said, pushing off the

tree and walking toward her. “I mean that crack in your
guitar.”

Lilith watched the easy way he moved— coolly, slowly,
as if no one had ever made him feel insecure about

anything in his life. He stopped right in front of her and
slid a canvas bag from his shoulder. The strap landed on
Lilith’s boot and she stared at it, as if the boy had put it
there, touching her, intentionally. She kicked it off.

“I’m careful.” She cradled her guitar. “Right now, the
ratio of guitar to crack is just right. If it ever became more
crack than guitar, then it would be worse.”

“Sounds like you have it all figured out.” The boy
stared at her long enough for Lilith to grow uncomfort-
able. His eyes were a spellbinding green. He clearly wasn’t
from around here. Lilith didn’t know if she’d ever met
anyone who wasn’t from Crossroads.

He was gorgeous and intriguing, and therefore too
good to be true. She hated him immediately. “This is my
spot. Find your own,” she said.

But instead of going away, he sat down. Next to her.
Close. Like they were friends. Or more than friends. “Do
you ever play with anyone else?” the boy asked.

He tilted his head, and Lilith caught a glimpse of a
starburst tattoo on his neck. She realized she was holding
her breath.

“What, music? Like a band?” She shook her head.
“No. Not that it’s any of your business.” This guy was
invading her turf, interrupting the only real time she had
to herself. She wanted him gone.

“What do you think of The Devil’s Business?” he
asked.
