The words; Marked for Early Death still showed on the inside cover, but as soon as Jonathan ran his finger over it, they disappeared and a menu popped up asking for a guardian passage code before going blank. Jonathan tapped it, and the menu reappeared but when no passage code was given, it went blank again. He glanced over at Markus who had converted his screen to a mini-hologramic display: a young woman of about 20 walking down a path reading a book. She was a pretty girl, but from where he was sitting, Jonathan didn’t think she’d win any beauty contests.
