    Summary

    She has traced Vi’s scars with her fingers and lips, innumerable, uncounted, and knows that so few are from fair fights; she sees the way Vi always rolls her right shoulder, stiff from a poorly-fixed dislocation, and knows that whatever supposed crime Vi has been unjustly punished for has been visited upon her ten times in kind.

     

     

     

    Caitlyn’s chest aches. She wishes she could make her mother understand. She wishes she didn’t have to defend Vi; she wishes someone had defended her all those years ago.

    Summary

    “About that,” Vi says. “How’d you end up here? What did a girl like you do to get tossed into this two-star shithole?”

    “Really? That’s how you ask? No subtlety in it?”

    “Uh, yeah? I saved you from getting shanked in the shower, so fair’s fair. What’s your deal, topside?”

    “Caitlyn,” she says. That isn’t right. That wasn’t the answer Vi was after. Names are easily given away but so seldomly remembered in Stillwater, but it echoes in Vi’s head. She almost doesn’t hear the actual answer. “And though I have no doubt a thousand people have given this answer before, I did nothing. I was doing my job, and then I was here. No trial. No sentencing. No crime to speak of.”

    Half a decade into Vi's stay in Stillwater, a topsider turns up, raving about being a Councillor's daughter.

    Summary

    “So,” Caitlyn starts, a little rehearsed, like she might be nervous, too. “I have to know. What kind of bet do you have to lose to end up at a community crocheting class on a Tuesday evening?”

    Vi slumps in her seat, considering her options. She can come up with a story on the fly, that’s no challenge, but she’s always found lying the least interesting form of conversation. Lifting her straw from her drink and shaking the last stubborn drops off, Vi dumps it on the table and takes a few swigs directly from the cup.
