    Summary

    “Is it Dirtyhands’ last trick? What does it feel to know that you’re going to die here, all alone?”

    Everyone dies alone, Kaz wanted to say. And I’ve been alone for years anyway.

     Loose ends catch up to Kaz, forcing him to contemplate the place of other people in his life.

    Summary

    “So, yes.” Kaz said. “It is a good idea to collect in the Barrel. Merchers don’t care about some puerile charity project, but the Barrel is built of survivors. It has a very long memory. Say some jumped-up kid pinches some kruge from them. When he comes back to his boss, who lost his girl and his Da and his best friend in the Queen’s Lady, and presents him with money that’s meant to be funding a memorial for them? Them, the people who never get a scrap of respect, who were left to die in the streets? That kid will be lucky if he escapes with both of his hands.”

    Summary

    The last thing Kaz had expected as he entered his apartment, shucking off his suit jacket, was to see Inej sitting on his armchair flipping absently through a book. She’d broken in, of course; sometimes, he regretted teaching her how to pick locks (until he felt that rush of pride every time she picked her way inside). He’d taken one look at her, noticed the baggy sweater pulled over her scrubs and the small duffle bag at her feet, and he knew.

    “Do you have anywhere to be?” she’d asked.

    {or; Inej needs to get away and Kaz needs to clear his head, and a hilltop under the stars on a summer night will do just that.}
