    Summary

    Pulling the trigger was easier than she thought. It was frighteningly easy and she could only pray that it wasn’t a live round, that the barrel was far enough away. Even with a blank, there would be a blast wave. It could be enough. Enough to leave a void.

    Summary

    ‘Suspicion’ would be normal. Maybe ‘fear’, too. This was … ‘curiosity’, she thought. She put her hand over her chest, where she knew her heart was, but no matter how hard she pushed against the skin, she still couldn’t feel it beat. A normal person would have a ‘pounding’ heart or a ‘racing’ heart.

    Summary

    There are one hundred thousand kilometers of blood vessels in the average human body, and if they were pulled out, strung along the center of the earth, they would encircle it multiple times, like tying a ribbon around a meaningless gift given to a lover for a stupid, commercial holiday, like a noose.

    Summary

    She showered and dressed, eschewing her normal style for jeans and a t-shirt. With her wig – light brown, chin-length – and fake glasses, she no longer looked like herself.

    Most days, she no longer felt like herself.

    Summary

    From what Phi understood, every esper tended to experience the morphogenetic field differently. For Phi, it was always light the color of the sky, with people’s minds represented by gangly, distorted, illuminated beings, like aliens in some old sci-fi films. Akane’s mind always appeared in the field as blood red, and Phi tried not to read too much into that.
