In short, I almost screamed. Avery cupped his hand over my mouth, and I nearly toppled over. He caught my back, and I scooched back to the wider part of the roof, where I could lay down as I grew paler. 

"Avery, you IDIOT!!" I boomed. "There must have been another -" 

"There wasn't, Peri. I tried! Hey, at least I know how to mark with limited pain - and with more sanity." Avery huffed and joined me. "Listen, when I find a way to take it off, I'll tell you, and -" Avery stopped talking as I sat up and held my head. "Are you okay?"

The door swang into my face as Grace and Zav were led out, a hood falling over my head. It was oversize, probably of Avery's. I tugged the hood just behind my hair line as Grace looked back. I waved to her...with my left hand. She went pale, and I gasped. 

No, no no no, I didn't mean that. I swore and walked back, tossing the hood to my back.
