Chapter 22

  • Shannon and Virginia go out to explore Seattle.
  • Virginia's brought along a picture of Froggy, who she's pining over big time.
  • She and Shannon want to do something special to commemorate the trip and their friendship; they discuss what they could do.
  • Friendship rings? Too overdone. Toe rings? Virginia has sensitive toes.
  • They see a guy walk by with lots of piercings, and in a burst of courage, Virginia asks him where he got them done.
  • He asks how old they are. She lies and says they're seventeen.
  • They're still too young, he tells them, but if they go to a place on Capitol Hill called Holy Moly and tell a piercer named Sage that X sent them, he'll hook them up.
  • The girls go and, as promised, Sage hooks them up. Virginia gets her eyebrow pierced, and Shannon gets her tongue pierced.
  • That night at dinner, Liam and Nina are cool and approve of the piercings, though they want Dr. Shreves to know they had nothing to do with it.
  • That night in the shower, Virginia masturbates for the first time since she found out about Byron.
  • She's finally feeling something other than numb.
