They were as insecure as the rest of us, Sierra thought. Not that it excuses their behavior.
It really doesn’t.
“Hand or knee?” Skitter asked.
Going for karmic retribution.
I like it!
“Fuck you!” Yan shouted.
Then she convulsed. She thrashed, dragging her hands against the pointed forelimbs with such violence that she opened ragged cuts in her palms.
Oh wow. What just bit her?
She stopped as quickly as she’d started, her eyes going wide.
She’d been bitten, more than once.
Was it the brown recluses?
Also, did Taylor go for “both” when Yan refused to choose?
“Shaggy-hair, hand or knee?”
Looks like that’s what happened, yeah.
Your turn, Jay.
Jay’s eyes went wide, but he very calmly stated, “Hand.”
Not bad, managing to stay calm after seeing what just happened to Yan. Does he think Skitter is bluffing, that the convulsions were just for show?
His eyes went wide as a spider crawled down the length of his arm to the back of his hand. He jumped like he’d been electrocuted.
Yeah, looks like he didn’t expect that to actually happen.
Y’know, I kinda hope Taylor takes the time at some point to mention that she did this to Lung’s dick, but even if she doesn’t, I like the parallels. The progression from that revelation horrifying her, to her doing this casually to three people who didn’t get anywhere near Lung’s supposed level of shittiness.
I say “supposed” because the only things we’ve really been shown of it are that his operation dealt in drugs and that he was willing to kill powered kids.
