    Summary

    Natalia is stacking blocks very carefully when the adults come into the room. None of them look at her, because they're all looking at her father. He's wearing combat gear, and the hair on the left side of his head is slicked back with blood. He smells like smoke and something unnameable, sweet and dark and a little sickly in her nose.

    Father is saying, “Don't be ridiculous. The only thing children are good at is disobeying.”

    Bookmark Notes:

    One afternoon in December, when Natalia is frowning at her grammar homework and Father is frowning at his computer screen, both of them in their pyjamas, she sits up and realizes:

    Somehow, when they weren't looking, they stopped being assets and started being people.

    What was the exact moment, she wonders? Was it in Brooklyn, sleeping on a mattress of her very own, or in France, when she left behind the things they put under her skin, or in Russia, when she followed Father onto a train, shedding crocodile tears? Or was it more like a jigsaw puzzle without a picture, the both of them assembling pieces until: click! and there she was?

    Or maybe, she thinks, it's one of the grand mysteries, like the start of everything. Her science textbook tells her she's made of stardust. Maybe people, like particles, like universes, are just inherently incomprehensible.

    Thoughts like those make even grammar tolerable.

    For a little while, anyway.
