    Summary

    Alina Starkov doesn’t trust people. It’s one of her rules, and by far the most important one; don’t trust anyone, especially not about what you can do. It’s a good thing that she likes being alone, it’s something that comes naturally to her. She has grown up knowing about her powers and nurturing them until they become exceptional, and she’s done it all on her own. She has no desires of being anyone’s saviour and maybe that makes her a not very good person since she is, theoretically, the only one capable of destroying the Fold. But she doesn’t really care. Things have been a certain way for a very long time, and if people don’t know about her, they will continue that way without a problem. Which is what she wants.
    But destiny has a way of not caring about what Alina Starkov wants.

    Summary

    She glanced in the mirror and realized that she could see him, staring directly at her, so apparently the intense looks are an all the time thing she thought to herself.

    “Stop looking at me like that.”
    “Like what?”
    “Like this will last.”

    Summary

    Alina Starkov has been sleeping over at her best friend Mal's house for years, and Mr. Morozova has always been extremely nice to her. Tonight, he's going to teach her a brand new lesson.
    ~

    “I always suspected my kid was too chicken to ask you out,” Aleksander sighs. “It’s a shame, really. I’ve always considered you…” he trails off as his fingertips hit the hem of her shorts, and the air suddenly seems like molasses. Alina watches as his Adam’s Apple bobs in slow motion, and she leans towards him a bit—just a fraction of an inch, barely noticeable, except that it pushes his fingers under the fabric. It’s an invitation to continue that doesn’t even register as such until his hand moves again, creeping even further upwards. A needy whimper escapes her throat as his fingers graze the crease of her thigh.
    “What do you know how to do with your hands?” Aleksander says softly.
