    Summary

    The unglamorous fact of the matter is that lifeguarding, particularly at a community swimming pool, is much less about the dramatic rescues and slo-mo dives into the water that Baywatch has tricked people into believing, and much more about janitorial work that's either tedious or gross, spiked with the occasional scraped knee or elbowed nose or no-holds-barred ice cream vendor death-match in the parking lot.

    (Or, Karl's in love with his best friend, all the local community pools in the Metropolitan county are at prank-war with each other, and also there are ducks.)

    Summary

    Marcus opened his mouth to say, ‘I’m worried about Burky, no one knows where he is,’ but what came out was: “I think Koschei the Deathless kidnapped Burky,” and the locker room went quiet. Marcus winced and looked down at Kuzy, who appeared shocked and slightly pale. Marcus closed his eyes against the worry and his own rising embarrassment. It sounded crazy, out loud.

    They were in California, not Russia. It was just an exhibit. Thousands of other people had visited without incident, no curses or hexes causing trouble, and there were definitely no kidnappings. Burky sometimes got distracted and climbed into the wrong car. He was probably stranded in San Francisco.

    Marcus scrubbed his hands through his hair. “How do I get him back?”

    Summary

    Zhenya knows that Nick and Marcus’s lease is up in July, after Nick graduates, and he thinks that Sasha is just waiting it out until they can move in together. Zhenya does not suggest that he and Nick just switch apartments, even though it would be pretty logical.

    So some mornings Zhenya shuffles out of bed to head to class and Marcus is asleep on the sofa.

    Summary

    “See, there’s guys out here giving lessons every day,” Dima is saying. Sasha hasn’t been listening to him, not really, because he’s been talking about surfing again. This is the hill Dima has decided to die on on this vacation. Kuzya is asleep on Sasha’s other side, face down on the sand. Sasha has balanced Kuzya’s sunglasses on the back of Kuzya’s head. Serves him right for falling right to sleep.

    Summary

    Nicke takes a deep breath, running his hands through his hair. “You’re an idiot,” he tells himself, because he’s bending over backwards to do a favor for a guy he doesn’t know, just because he’s cute? Then fine, Nicke’s an idiot.
