    Eight Days until the Warcross Closing Ceremony

    Someone is watching me.
    I can feel it-the eerie sensation of being followed, an invisible gaze locked on my back. It prickles my skin, and as I make my way through Tokyo's rain-soaked streets to meet up with the Phoenix Riders, I keep looking over my shoulder. People hurry by in a steady stream of colorful umbrellas and business suits, heels and oversize coats. I can't stop imagining their downcast faces all turned in my direction, no matter which way I go.
    Maybe it's the paranoia that comes with years of being a bounty hunter. You're on a crowded street, I tell myself. No one's following you.
    It's been three days since Hideo's algorithm was triggered. Technically, the world should now be the safest it's ever been. Every single person who has used the new Henka Games contact lenses-even just once-should now be completely under Hideo's control, rendered unable to break the law or harm another person.
    Only the few who still use the beta lenses, like me, are unaffected.
    So, in theory, I shouldn't be worried about someone following me. The algorithm won't let them do anything to hurt me.
    But even as I think this, I slow down to stare at the long line wrapping around a local police station. There must be hundreds of people. They're all turning themselves in to the authorities for anything and everything unlawful they've ever done, from unpaid parking tickets to petty theft-even murder. It's been like this for the past three days.
    My attention shifts to a police barricade at the end of the street. They're directing us to detour down a different block. Ambulance lights flash against the walls, illuminating a covered gurney being lifted into the vehicle. I only need to catch a glimpse of officers pointing up at the roof of a nearby building before I figure out what occurred here. Another criminal must have jumped to their death. Suicides like this have been peppering the news.
    And I helped make all of this happen.
    I swallow my unease and turn away. There's a subtle but significant blankness in everyone's eyes. They don't know an artificial hand is inside their minds, bending their free will.
    Hideo's hand.
    The reminder is enough to make me pause in the middle of the street and close my eyes. My fists clench and unclench, even as my heart lurches at his name. I'm such an idiot.
    How can the thought of him fill me with disgust and desire at the same time? How can I stare in horror at this line of people waiting in the rain outside a police station-but still blush at my dream of being in Hideo's bed, running my hands along his back?
    We're over. Forget him. I open my eyes again and continue on, trying to contain the anger beating in my chest.
    By the time I duck into the heated halls of a Shinjuku shopping center, rain is coming down in wavy sheets, smearing the reflections of neon lights against the slick pavement.
    Not that the storm is stopping preparations for the upcoming Warcross closing ceremony, which will mark the end of this year's games. With my beta lenses on, I can see the roads and sidewalks color-coded in hues of scarlet and gold. Each Tokyo district is highlighted like this right now, the streets shaded the colors of the most popular team in that neighborhood. Overhead, a lavish display of virtual fireworks is going off, piercing the dark sky with bursts of colored light. Shinjuku district's favorite team is the Phoenix Riders, so the fireworks here are currently forming the shape of a rising phoenix, arching its flaming neck in a cry of victory.
    Every day over the next week or so, the top ten players of this year's championships will be announced worldwide after a vote by all Warcross fans. Those ten players will compete in a final, all-star tournament during the closing ceremony, and then spend a year as the biggest celebrities in the world before they play again next spring, in the o
