Indd 52 18/03/2013 13:09 Clear as a bell, right inside my head, the voice of the Mayor, twining around my own voice, like it’s speaking direktly into my Noise, so sudden and real I sit up and nearly fall off my horse. Davy looks surprised, his Noise wondering what I’m reacting to. But the Mayor just rides on down the road, like nothing happened at all. The town gets less shiny the farther east we get from the cathedral and soon we’re riding on gravel. The buildings get plainer, too, long wooden houses set at distances from each other like bricks dropped into clearings of trees.
He turns slowly, so everyone can see what’s about to happen. So that everyone can see the knife. ” from across the square. A single voice, carrying above the silence. It came from the women. My heart jumps for a second– But of course it can’t be her– But at least there’s someone. At least there’s someone. Mayor Prentiss walks calmly to the microphone. “ Your victorious enemy addresses you,” he says, almost politely, as if the person who shouted was simply not understanding. ” He turns to look at Mayor Ledger, kneeling there on the platform.
But my Noise does. ” he says. ” Now that, I think, is a very good asking. Night falls quick and full, Mayor Ledger saying less and less and fidgeting more and more till he finally can’t stand it and starts to pace. All the while, his buzz gets louder till even if we wanted to talk, we’d have to shout to do it. I stand at the front of the tower and watch the stars come out, night covering the valley below. And I’m thinking and I’m trying not to think cuz when I do, my stomach turns and I feel sick, or my throat clenches and I feel sick, or my eyes wet and I feel sick.
