Chapter 38

JIMMI

  • Jimmi and Mik head to the streets to try to find Fatima. They figure they'll go over to the VA hospital and hopefully find her there teaching.
  • They can't ask the cops since they're mandatory reporters now for illegal immigrants.
  • Mik tells Jimmi they were going to create the most beautiful thing in the world together, but Jimmi thinks they already did—the Statue of Liberty mural was amazing.
  • Suddenly people start swarming to two of them.
  • They grab Jimmi, rope up his ankles and string him up.
  • The mob hates him and takes their anger out on him, even though they don't know him.
  • Jimmi thinks that he would like to live.
