Zhivka has a terrible overhand but an angry set to her jaw that makes me step back and watch. A stone sails whitely through the air and connects with glass, and then she goes for another. The window shatters. We're thirteen years old, artists in the making. Failure running through our lives like a rotted thread. 41 We become inseparable almost immediately.

We walk past the Shkola 837 and smell the sharp fumes of paint wafting out and assure ourselves that we're not jealous, not even a little. We run half-feral through the streets, and we make plans to start our own studios and art schools. We may have been born into shit, but we won't stay here forever.
