    Summary

    “I don’t want to be too isolated anyway. Somewhere with a bus would be good," Svetlana says. "I’m not sure I will ever be able to drive on the other side of the road.”

    Florence chuckles and squeezes Svetlana’s hand. She’d felt the same way when she moved to America. “That’s alright. I’ll be your personal chauffeur,” she says. “I’ll take you anywhere you need to go.”

    Svetlana looks back at her, a smile on her face that hasn’t yet failed to make Florence’s heart stutter in her chest. “I’m sure the new world chess champion has better things to do with her time than drive me around,” she says.

    “That’s where you would be wrong,” Florence says.

    Summary

    ALICE IN BORDERLAND AU — Freddie can hear the faint whirring of the elevator as it climbs up each floor. Then, a gentle ding, and the sound of the doors opening thereafter.

    A faint thumping sound of heavy boots hitting the floor echoes across the complex. Anatoly digs his nails into Molokov’s sleeve as they gouge where the tagger is coming from. They’re slow, calculated steps, dragging one feet after the other.

    Freddie’s shoulders tense up as he can hear the sound grow louder with each step. He’s definitely certain it's on his floor.

    Summary

    Anatoly said a few summers ago that he wouldn’t attend tournaments during this season. Alexander and Walter had more productive plans that didn’t include being stuck inside all day playing chess.

    Summary

    Cities are born by death, and Capitals are crowned by blood. Shifting the location of a country’s seat of government is not as simple as crossing out a name. For a City to lose its power, a sacrifice must be made.

    The Silent Wars: fought in the shadows between competing Cities. Most humans aren’t even aware of them. They think simple policy decisions are behind it all, that the leaders of the country are the ones with the power.

    Cities are ruthless. Not bound by the limits of mortality, convention, or love, never singed by the tale of Cain; to kill a brother is an act of justice and war is a sport.

    What happens, then, if a man decides that he has the power to trade away the Capital for a City not yet in existence?

    Summary

    “Between them and Freddie, he knows the choice isn’t difficult to make. He could lead him to some back alleyway and cut open his throat without anyone ever noticing. The problem is—he doesn’t want to. Perhaps it’s his way of making amends to his parents if he decides to do something for himself for once.”

    Summary

    The more the Arbiter looks around, the more he realizes there aren’t many people left. “Where are your parents?”

    “At home.”

    That’s a little irresponsible. He’s—what, eight, give or take? Irresponsible doesn’t quite fit the description—maybe inattentive, or negligent. The Arbiter won’t butt himself where it isn’t asked of him, but suspicions still arise.

    Summary

    “Whatever happened to Jameson? You remember him, right, from Portland?” Freddie asks.

    “Oh, he quit chess a few years ago,” Florence says. Her laugh is a lot lighter now that she has a couple drinks in her—she’s more relaxed. “He joined a band. Last I heard, they were on tour.”

    “Maybe that’s what I should do,” he says. “Everyone always says I’m only in this for money and attention, maybe I should just go on tour. I’d probably get tons of money and attention then.”

    “You already tried that, remember? You tried to convince me to let you rent a car and go across the country playing 100 simuls.”

    “Oh yeah,” Freddie grins. “I remember you wouldn’t let me.”

    Summary

    Leonid doesn’t know Svetlana well, but he knows that none of this is her fault. He does, however, know Molokov. There’s an empty seat next to Svetlana. There is no way of knowing what the next few weeks have in store for her, but the last thing she needs is to be bothered on the journey. 

    “May I sit here?” he asks her once he reaches her row. She looks up at him, a little startled, and he feels bad about it, but her face smooths out quickly.

    “Yes, of course,” she says, sitting up straighter.

    Summary

    “How are you feeling? Are you resting?” Anatoly asks, unable to squash his natural tendency to worry.

    “I have rested plenty,” Svetlana assures him. She sounds tired. “Actually, Anatoly… Is there anyone else around?”

    Anatoly looks around his empty hotel room. “No one,” he says. “What’s wrong?”

    “Nothing is wrong, I promise,” she says. “But, Tolya… the baby was already born. I’m calling you from the hospital.”

    Summary

    “Winning is winning.”

    “The way you win matters more importantly than just winning.”

    Maybe that is it. Anatoly’s philosophy laid out in a single sentence that made him stand out as a better player than Molokov will ever be.

    Summary

    “Chess,” Walter says contemplatively. He hasn’t played since he was a child—he always found it rather boring. He tries to look at it from Molokov’s perspective, to see what the draw might be. “I can’t say I envy the thought of waiting on some genius chess player hand and foot. Doesn’t sound very lucrative, either.”

    “Perhaps not for you,” Molokov agrees. “We should play next time we meet. I’m very rusty.”

    “You’d still kick my ass,” Walter says.

    Summary

    Very soon, if Anatoly continues to progress at the rate he has been, Molokov is likely to find himself with a permanent charge, and Anatoly will be on the narrow path to the top of the top. It will be a heavy burden to bear.

    But right now, Anatoly isn’t quite there yet. Right now, he’s 16, and he wants to go sightseeing.

    Summary

    The two of them walk to the nearest subway station together. Out of nowhere, Freddie asks, “have you ever been to Chicago?”

    She blinks at him, trying and failing to make sense of the question in her head. “No. Why?”

    He doesn’t look at her, instead preferring to track the streetlights they walk under. “Do you wanna go with me?”

    Summary

    Nothing has changed from when he was a child. Alexander still protects him from the flames, still looks at him expectedly before he pulls the trigger. There are children that didn’t get the same treatment he did. He looks into their eyes and he can see them asking—weren’t you a child, too?
