2 Works in Ana Amari/Mei-Ling Zhou
When she opens her eyes, Ana's smiling, eyes alight, and Mei loses the battle against her giggles. Ana laughs with her, and something loosens in Mei's chest.
"Yes," she says. "That's ... yes. Yes to everything I never got to say yes to before I left."
[ Ana, Mei, and the world outside the ice. ]
Before she went into the ice, Mei’s last thoughts were of a woman she loved and the daughter she barely knew. She wasn’t leaving them alone; Ana had other partners, not the least of them a German she knew could take care of her. But it still ached, not knowing when she would see her again.
Then Mei woke up, and they told her the news. And Phara had grown up without her, and humans had destroyed even more of the world. It was hard to keep smiling for a while. But when Mei got a call from a number she didn’t recognize, and heard the aged voice, her heart damn near soared.
