The Host Chapter 38 Summary

How It All Goes Down

Touched

  • Alone together, Ian and Wanda start touching and smooching. Things get complicated considering that Wanda's body isn't even her own (so the fact that Ian is attracted to her physically is weird) and Melanie doesn't want her body smooching Ian at all.
  • After make-out fest is over, Jamie pops up and tells Wanda that Jared wants her to move in with them. Of course he does!
  • Since that's what Melanie wants, Wanda agrees to it, further complicating this complex love trapezoid.
