Chapter List

4.a (Cluster; Snag’s night) is the fourth chapter and first interlude of Shade. Rain lives up to his name and has a dreary day.

Plot[]

A memory of Snag's is shown possibly relating to his trigger event. After coming out of it, Rain, the viewpoint character, finds himself in a dream realm where he sees the other members of his cluster. They discuss business and Rain is silent as ever.

Rain wakes up and goes about his day at the compound. Meets with Erin and her little brother, Bryce, who needs to go to a sermon because he was bad. The two older teenagers chat about their social responsibilities, family expectations and history. Rain's interest in Erin is painfully obvious.

Going to the Sermon, the man Elijah preaches the group's creed and proves to be everything Rain has come to hate. Talking to Erin they decide to leave early, leaving Bryce there, and reveals that they are fed up with the Fallen.

Later Rain and his friends listen in on Snag and Love Lost talking to an experienced assassin planning Rain's prolonged death. Rain panics and runs, coming to a stop a far distance away only for Tristan to show up, having followed him. Tristan tries to convince his friend to open up to the group about his past but Rain is still reticent. Tristan's timer goes off and he switches out with Byron who allows Rain to leave. Byron agrees with Tristan that Rain needs to admit the scale of the situation.
