    Summary

    The naiad moved in shortly after Sid finished his house, that first summer, a week after he filled the pool. He noticed some splashing one morning while he was eating breakfast, and when he went outside to investigate, she popped her head up out of the water, clung to the side of the pool, and hissed at him.

    “Uh,” Sid said, still holding a slice of toast in one hand. Dew from the grass chilled his bare feet. “Are you—hi?”

    Summary

    Sitting at the table was Sid: Sid as Zhenya had first known him, almost a decade before: dorky, long-haired Sid, his cheeks round with baby fat. He couldn’t have been older than twenty, and even that was generous.

    “Wow,” baby Sid said. “Are you Evgeni Malkin?”

    In the grocery store, Zhenya was confronted with the agonizing revelation that Sid’s idea of Christmas baking involved purchasing pre-made cookie dough in a tube.

    “Well. No,” Sidney said. “We’re—it’s a casual thing.”

    “Not anymore,” Jen said. “Congratulations, you’re in love.”
