    Summary

    Geno rides in the cramped back seat with his bag beside him and his knees pressed tight against the seatback in front of him. It’s like being on the plane all over again.
    His mother is twisted around in her seat to look back at him, eyes still a little red from her tears but her face absolutely lit up as she talks about their plans for the week, all the things they’ll do and the food they’ll make. Geno’s father occasionally will chime in, but it’s mostly Natalia who is running the show and Geno’s head is spinning. Their weekly chats are never this intense and this is the most Russian he’s heard in ages.

    Summary

    The mackerel were early, and so the fishermen came out early with them. Zhenya watched them from far away in his hiding spot as the boats rocked gently with the waves and the men worked under the bright midday sun. They shucked their shirts off despite the chill in the air, and Zhenya watched in fascination as their skin glimmered white with sweat, almost as bright as the mackerel they pulled from the water—almost.

    Summary

    Geno puts his hand on the back of Sidney’s neck, gently, without real pressure and Sidney can feel everything in him slowly folding.

     

    He looks up, his pulse beating hard in his throat. “Take me home before I get on my knees in the fucking parking lot.”

     

    Geno’s smile is, as always, best when it’s for Sidney.

     

     

    It takes the whole season, but Sidney finally learns to let go.

    Summary

    Zhenya hadn’t wanted to move into Sid’s house. He liked his own house, with its grand curving staircase and the big yard and the woods beyond. Sid’s neighbors were too close and his house was too professionally designed and decorated. It lacked character, although the pool was a plus.
