    Summary

    Freddie holds the queen piece out to her, between his thumb and forefinger. “Hey, what’s this from?” he asks.

    Her eyes grow wide when she registers what it is, and she grabs it from him, squeezing it in her palm. “It’s nothing,” she says.

    Freddie frowns up at her from the floor. “Okay,” he says flatly.

    Florence looks away, then sighs and sinks down onto the mattress. She opens her palm to look at the queen piece. “Sorry. I didn’t mean to snap at you,” she says. “It’s from my father. He gave it to me right before I left Budapest.”

    Summary

    “I don’t want to be too isolated anyway. Somewhere with a bus would be good," Svetlana says. "I’m not sure I will ever be able to drive on the other side of the road.”

    Florence chuckles and squeezes Svetlana’s hand. She’d felt the same way when she moved to America. “That’s alright. I’ll be your personal chauffeur,” she says. “I’ll take you anywhere you need to go.”

    Svetlana looks back at her, a smile on her face that hasn’t yet failed to make Florence’s heart stutter in her chest. “I’m sure the new world chess champion has better things to do with her time than drive me around,” she says.

    “That’s where you would be wrong,” Florence says.

    Summary

    “Between them and Freddie, he knows the choice isn’t difficult to make. He could lead him to some back alleyway and cut open his throat without anyone ever noticing. The problem is—he doesn’t want to. Perhaps it’s his way of making amends to his parents if he decides to do something for himself for once.”

    Summary

    “Whatever happened to Jameson? You remember him, right, from Portland?” Freddie asks.

    “Oh, he quit chess a few years ago,” Florence says. Her laugh is a lot lighter now that she has a couple drinks in her—she’s more relaxed. “He joined a band. Last I heard, they were on tour.”

    “Maybe that’s what I should do,” he says. “Everyone always says I’m only in this for money and attention, maybe I should just go on tour. I’d probably get tons of money and attention then.”

    “You already tried that, remember? You tried to convince me to let you rent a car and go across the country playing 100 simuls.”

    “Oh yeah,” Freddie grins. “I remember you wouldn’t let me.”

    Summary

    The two of them walk to the nearest subway station together. Out of nowhere, Freddie asks, “have you ever been to Chicago?”

    She blinks at him, trying and failing to make sense of the question in her head. “No. Why?”

    He doesn’t look at her, instead preferring to track the streetlights they walk under. “Do you wanna go with me?”

    Summary

    Nothing has changed from when he was a child. Alexander still protects him from the flames, still looks at him expectedly before he pulls the trigger. There are children that didn’t get the same treatment he did. He looks into their eyes and he can see them asking—weren’t you a child, too?

    Summary

    "Theo... Teddy, can we talk?" Leonid asked, his hands shaking.

    "Of course babe, what's up?" Theo didn't look up from his drawing.

    "I mean... a serious talk." Theo looked up then, worry in his eyes and charcoal on his nose.

    "Yeah, what's wrong?" He dropped the charcoal and stood up, wiping his hands on his messy art clothes and sat on the bed, he took the book from Leo's hands and held them, "Are you okay?"

    "I don't know," Leonid asked, "I feel very confused about myself, but I feel like you could probably help me."

    "If I can, I will, what do you feel confused about?"

    "Who I am," Leonid admitted, "Like... gender wise."

    Freddie tensed up as he felt a hand on his shoulder, turning around more aggressively than he should have, only stopping as he realized whose hand it was.

    Summary

    "...I peeled my orange,
    That was so bright against
    The gray of December
    That, from some distance,
    Someone might have thought
    I was making a fire in my hands."

    Oranges, Gary Soto

    or, five times Anatoly shares his fruit, and one time Freddie does.
