    Summary

    Nile takes a deep breath. Tilts her head to one side, then the other. Evaluates the distance between the soccer ball at her feet and the makeshift goal. 
    “You gonna shoot, or are we gonna stand here all night?” her dad teases. He’s standing in goal, knees slightly bent and arms out, ready to block her shot. She hasn’t been able to get a shot past him all day, but this time’s the one. She can feel it in her bones.

    Quỳnh thinks going shopping right now is a waste of time, but it turns out it can be important. Also is fun to tease Nile and ask her lot of questions.

    Summary

    “You said you’d be here tomorrow,” Celeste accuses when Nile steps on the creaky floorboard.

    She clicks the lamp by her bed on, revealing she’d been sitting up against the headboard, bare legs crossed, not asleep at all, waiting.

    “I got impatient,” Nile says.

    Her favorite thing about Celeste is her smile. It’s sly, coy, like she’s got things to hide. It makes Nile feel less guilty for wasting Celeste’s time, to think she might have her own skeletons, her own nightmares, hidden away in a place Nile can’t see.

    Nile struggles to understand the dreams she has about Lykon. The thing is, she just can’t stop dreaming about him and doesn’t know what it means.

    Summary

    She was raised--

    She was programmed--

    She was raised to always speak the truth. “No.”

    “Do you ever feel inconsistencies in your world? Or repetitions?”

    Her mother would be horrified to have raised a liar, let alone a killer. “No.”

    “Have you ever lied to us?”

    She feels the shame of killing acutely, but not of lying. If she tells the truth they will make her sleep again, and she will wake as she was before, innocent in a way, until the last moments, when her hands are bloodied. 

    And she’s not going back to that.

    Summary

    As her life is not, in fact, a movie, no one has the dubious honour of playing the role of grizzled mentor figure. Considering every single member of her newfound team is stupidly attractive any one of 'em would look dashing and shit sporting silvery-grey hair. Bastards!

    Nile is stil fitting in.

    Summary

    She paused again, trying to find the words to explain to him why she was upset. "My mom and dad… it was a family thing, you know? Voting day. Ever since we were little my parents would pick us up after they got off work and we’d all go to the polls and wait in line together, didn’t matter if it was for a school board election or the president. They’d let me and Jordan into the booth with them to watch, and sometimes, if the lines hadn’t been too long, we’d wait for family friends who were also there. And then we would go out for ice cream to celebrate.”
     

    Or, the time Nile realizes that a side effect of being legally dead is that you can't vote.

    Summary

    Sundays are the worst. Or Mondays. Or Wednesdays in the morning. Or every. Single. Day.

    It's a sort of missing Nile's never felt before, is all.

    Summary

    The recording dissolves to static, then loops over. Nile steps closer to watch it again, and DZ does not back up, which is a good sign.

    After a couple more loops, Nile tells her, “There’s no Kaysani settlement on Tatooine.” DZ lets out a dismayed descending note. Nile adds, “But there is a Senator Yusuf al-Kaysani.”

    She could swear Dizzy’s status light gets a little brighter. Nile smiles, pleased to be of assistance. “Can you play back the whole message?”

    Not without the correct authorizations.

    “Okay.” Nile sits back on her heels and weighs logistics against the hours of daylight left. “I’ll make you a deal. Stick around long enough for me and Jay to scrap your pod, wait out the night at my farm, and I’ll take you to Mos Eisley tomorrow. If al-Kaysani is on Tatooine right now, that’s where he’ll be.”
