As the city prepares the revolution, Gerard is torn between choosing to fight alongside his best friend or leave with the girl he just met.


23. Last Chance: Lily

The barricade was built. The rebels were gathering and I was going by the name Jason. There was only one problem now. I was on the wrong side of the barricade because of two Central guards in disguise found me and took me back there. But I never got back there vmbecause I escaped them. They saw me when I was talking to Gerard. Stupid parents! I don't want to go back I want to fight for my freedom alongside Gerard. Even if Lauren had backed out on me.
There was no way round or under the barricade so I guess I was going to climb it.
Each push up the side was a struggle but when I finally reached the top I hear a cry.
"There is a man climbing the barricade!"
There was a rush as I was hit by the speeding bullet and fell to the ground near the rebels. Then I blacked out.
"Move! Move!" the sound of Gerard's voice made me open my eyes. I was weak and I knew time was running out.
Gerard held me in his arms. I used to dream of him holding me but it was never like this. The rebels left and took their positions. I could hear Ramin yelling something at them but I couldn't make out what he was saying.
"Lily, what were you doing? Were you trying to fight? Oh Lily." Gerard's words were soft and he was crying.
"It's okay. Your hear that's all I need. Gerard I...," I couldn't talk. I couldn't do anything. My time was running out.
