It had not been what Veronica would ever have considered a good day.

Not only had she missed her connecting flight to Ithaca, the airline had "misdirected" her single piece of luggage to Virginia. When she'd been waiting on a shuttle to her hotel, she'd been splashed from head to toe with slush by a passing cab. And now that she was dining the a dimly lit hotel bar, the last thing she wanted to deal with was a friendly travelling salesman named Barney - recently divorced, wouldn't you know? - chatting her up from his place at the bar.

About two-thirds of the way through her meal (hurried because of the unwelcome company), another gentleman entered and sat at the bar. As soon as it was apparent Barney was going to invite himself to her table, Veronica took her only opportunity to escape without outright telling the man to piss off. She gathered up her purse with a hurried "excuse me" hurled at Barney.

Veronica crossed the bar to where the man had just ordered. "Where have you been, bonehead? I was starting to worry!" She threw her arms around the stranger and embraced him warmly (hoping against hope he wasn't a worse kind of creep). Veronica whispered roughly into his ear, "Pretend to be my brother, okay? Please."

What are you afraid of?

Those were the words that rang in Veronica’s ears as her body was pressed lightly back into the stiff airline seat. Logan had asked her a few days before (though from Logan, it had come out sounding a lot more like an accusation), and then, eerily, her father had unintentionally echoed him on their trip to the airport. Keith Mars dad had been kinder about the question, smiling merrily at her from the driver’s seat. He thought he knew; he didn’t think Veronica was afraid of anything.

But there was something in the pit of her stomach, something not quite as unfamiliar as she would have liked. )
