Hiding is obviously the easiest route when you're labeled a parasite. Even more does it seem when discovered that you're actually the saving grace. While The Council leads a propaganda campaign about a cure, Mela Chasers scour the lands for people of color in hopes of pillaging their melanin. Young Saye has learned that hiding is how one stays alive, and she stands firm in this belief. The unanswered question still exist...if people of color die, how will the melanin survive?
