    Summary

    Root remembers being seven-years-old and combing the Goodwill for sundresses and skirts that flared out when she twirled and white knee socks. She’d seen a film at school, she doesn't remember which one, but it had felt like solving the final equation in the high school math textbook when she connected the clothes and the mannerisms of the little girls on screen to the easy way they seemed to glide through life, charmed and happy and safe.

    Summary

    Root sits on an old, rusty bench outside a pub with uneven streaks of green dye in her dark hair and a sombrero on the seat next to her. Her elbow is on the armrest and her cheek is cupped in her palm. She snores gently and continues to drool on her hand. Yet she still manages to look cute.

    *freeze frame*

    *record scratch*

    That’s me. I bet you're wondering how I got there. Yeah. So am I.

    Or: Root tries to find out what happened the night before while simultaneously taking Shaw out on an early Valentine's Day date.
