    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

    Cities are born by death, and Capitals are crowned by blood. Shifting the location of a country’s seat of government is not as simple as crossing out a name. For a City to lose its power, a sacrifice must be made.

    The Silent Wars: fought in the shadows between competing Cities. Most humans aren’t even aware of them. They think simple policy decisions are behind it all, that the leaders of the country are the ones with the power.

    Cities are ruthless. Not bound by the limits of mortality, convention, or love, never singed by the tale of Cain; to kill a brother is an act of justice and war is a sport.

    What happens, then, if a man decides that he has the power to trade away the Capital for a City not yet in existence?

    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

    The more the Arbiter looks around, the more he realizes there aren’t many people left. “Where are your parents?”

    “At home.”

    That’s a little irresponsible. He’s—what, eight, give or take? Irresponsible doesn’t quite fit the description—maybe inattentive, or negligent. The Arbiter won’t butt himself where it isn’t asked of him, but suspicions still arise.

    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

    Now Anatoly is standing in his living room like a stray dog, shivering from whatever horrors he has experienced and Freddie wasn’t even there to help him when he knew something felt off. Bitterness—like blood—touches his tongue. It would’ve been worth the hassle to tear the Soviet Union apart to find him—but he didn’t.

    What could he have done that would’ve made a difference?

    Summary

    “Should we turn off the lamp?” Anatoly asks.

    “No,” says Freddie. “I want you to watch me. I’ll watch you, too.” It’s sadistic, the way he says it, but comfort at the same time. He will be the last thing he sees before he succumbs to blood loss, to death.

    Summary

    Even if he was just talking, Freddie’s words wrapped him like the slim arms of death and engulfed him whole as the darkness of every lonely night would.

    “Okay.”

    Freddie stares at him. He’s gentle this time, a hand on his arm, clutching his sleeve. “Yeah?”

    “Let’s go together. Poetically.”
