    Summary

    Family, Silver's learned, is nothing but a lie. It’s a balm to soothe old wounds, a fairytale people tell themselves to keep the pain of loneliness at bay.

    His memories of his true family, of his mother and grandmother, are fading, haunting things: a gentle hand running through the tangles in his hair; a soft, off-key lullaby, lilting in his ear; the smell of smoke, the blinding blaze of fire, a voice screaming -

    The point is, he doesn’t put much stock in the idea of family. He hasn’t for years.

    -----

    The Walrus crew discovers a three year old girl stowed away in the hold of one of their prizes. She and Silver have more in common than the others realize.

    Summary

    Thomas wakes to the sound of John Barlow lying about something.

    He can tell, even before he’s awake enough to comprehend words, that John is lying: there’s a particular timbre of his voice, low and melodious, that he calls up whenever he wishes to draw someone into his confidences. It’s a tell most curious for its blatancy.

    At the moment he is saying something about his marriage and how, having lost it, inevitably he would seek out its imitation elsewhere, and this should have been expected. Which means he’s most likely speaking to James.

    Indeed, when Thomas lifts his cheek from where it had been resting on John’s bare stomach, he discovers James standing at the foot of the bed, still wearing the clothes he’d been in last night for his performance at the Green Gentleman Tavern on Wilbur Street. Presently, he is looking down at the scene before him with a dazed, wild-eyed expression, the scene before him being: Thomas and John, naked, tangled together in the blankets of the bed in which Thomas and James have spent the last two and a half years of their lives.

    “Good morning, love,” Thomas says with a yawn. “I don’t suppose you’ve started breakfast.”
