    Summary

    Whenever soulmarks were the topic of conversation, Artemy was laughed at. He understood why – most people had something totally benign like 'how can I help you today' or 'can you tell me how to get to the library', which were totally normal things to be the first thing you said to a stranger.

    The first words Artemy’s soulmate was destined to say to him, on the other hand, left a lot to be desired.

    “Maybe they’re a serial killer?” Lara suggested.

    Summary

    “What?” Daniil demands, frowning. Without responding, Burakh reaches over to brush his fingers through Daniil’s hair.

    “You had leaves on you,” Burakh says, looking stupid and stunned in the dying sunlight.

    “Indeed,” says Daniil, feeling stupid and stunned himself.

    -

    For an intelligent person, Daniil is decidedly unobservant.

    Summary

    When he puts the phone back, his boyfriend takes his hand and places it on the stick shift, so that he can put his own over it. Daniil smiles and gives in, surrendering to the suddenly formed but irresistible urge to lay his head against his shoulder.
    Artemy smiles in the corner of his eye. It’s nice. He’s always surprised by how nice it is.

    “How was today?”
    “Long. I can't stand having to work with people. I should have been a pathologist.”
    “That would have been nice. I could have left you cute messages inside the bodies.”
    “What is more romantic than a malpractice lawsuit, after all?”

    Summary

    Artemy is pulling out blankets, blankets neither he nor his father had touched in years, too precious by far to be used for such banalities like sleeping. Especially when Artemy was the one sleeping -- that was hardly something to be enjoyed, much more an act of maintenance, like keeping a machine oiled.
    Sprays of cloth flowers and herbs emerge from the small linen closet, just the same as he could remember it, the bigger quilt stuffed with wool, the wedding quilt from his mother. It was the only thing he knew of her, tangibly, the delicate stitches and hems he's sure even Daniil can feel the love pouring through.

    -

    Daniil and Artemy try to get some rest in what is now their home.
