    Summary

    “I’ll be blunt,” Saperstein said. “The released powder appears to be having some unintended side effects. We saw the signs in the lab at first, and soon we’re going to be seeing them up here. Damn this fully-functioning ventilation system!” He paused. “I regret to inform you all that the KinderKare building is about to become a love shack, as chronicled in the song ‘Love Shack.’”

    “I’m making a mistake,” Henry said behind her. “As in, I’ve made a mistake and this is an ongoing mistake.”

    “Wait, Henry, do you not know how to jerk off? How sad was your childhood?”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Malvolia liked to be a bit impressive, with her close-cropped blonde hair, the men’s suit. She liked to dress as herself, liked the way some men turned down the corners of their mouths in appreciative acquiescence: she had a right to the suit, no denying that. She liked the way some women looked once, then twice. Liked their quiet little smiles. There was no one around to remember the bobbed wig and the shapeless black dress of her steward days. No one around to remember the other clothes, either, the ones she thought about every time she saw a daffodil or a yellow kerchief or mustard sauce.

    The unthinkable happens. Zero takes his hand and it’s so awful, Arlo freezes, unable to respond in a normal way. Zero is on his back again and together they float, holding hands, and Arlo wonders if this is his cue to drown himself.

    “They perform the appropriate rituals of devotion.” Vladislav smiles at the screen. “They give me little hearts on my selfies.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The crocodile never came. But something bulbous and swollen and as translucent as the coastal trees oozed its way into their tract of land on Monday, boneless and sucking like a creature from the deep, not quite jellyfish, not quite cephalopod, but with three apertures full of human teeth and the gargling voices of three men who had been thrown (had thrown themselves?) into a death at sea.

    She asked them not to shoot it.

    No one listened.
