    Summary

    “It is, you suppose, your weight to carry, the gravity of what happens when the balance of the Fire shifts, and somewhere in the back of your mind you know it’s only going to continue to grow till you’re carrying the weight of the entire city on your shoulders”
    ---
    Tyreek Olive lives and dies and maybe tries to learn along the way.

    Summary

    You were holding Jaylen’s hand when she got incinerated.

    In the end, you remember that more than you do the spectacle itself. Others talk about the smoke or the bright flash that preceded it or the tongues of flame curling up into the hazy, sunless sky.

    You don't talk about any of it at all.

    (If you're going to strike out, make sure you strike out swinging.)

    Summary

    Sundays were always Suzanne household family nights, but the first Sunday of the month went unspoken as mandatory. Tour schedules were altered, work dinners postponed, on-call days asked off or traded, and if Declan truly was set to be across the country, the answer always came, “Well then, how about Monday instead?” Now that they were between seasons, there wasn’t any point in trying to get out of it.

    (There are three constants in life: death, taxes, and awkward family dinners.)
