Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 Summary
In Chapter 5, Kale and Dez make it to the hotel, and are put into a room to wait for Misha Vaughn. As the two talk, Dez brushes his cheek with a kiss, and Kale clearly enjoys it. When they lean in to kiss on the lips, however, they are interrupted by Misha. She explains that Denazen is a government sanctioned institution that uses sixes for their own benefit, brainwashing and coercing and hurting the sixes until they comply, or until they are eliminated. Misha mentions the Reaper, but notes she doesn't know where he might be, although she gives them an address of Cole Oyster, who may know. Once she leaves, Kale and Dez kiss again, this time on the lips, as Dez tries to explain why Kale's pulse is racing. After kissing for quite some time, they go to sleep, content.
