    Summary

    She stops at a flower stall by the metro entrance on her way from work. She doesn’t get herself roses, and particularly not white ones. Instead, she picks a few pale hydrangeas, punctuated by Salix branches and rosehip, a washed out bouquet that reminds her of reaching over the window sill at home, watching her mother scratch a rake through the grass in their backyard, fallen yellow and orange leaves gathering in small piles across the frozen ground.

    She cuts all the stalks at a slant, and fills the vase with lukewarm water. She puts it in the center of the kitchen island, all the while pretending that she doesn’t think about putting it instead to rest in her window, and all of the implications that doing so — and thinking of doing so — entails.

    Summary

    He leans into her hand, and murmurs, “So you found me. Thought you would.”

    Phyrne’s throat is too tight for her to speak at first, but she eventually manages to smile. “Yes. Of course I did.”
