Abstract

Emma Törzs Photo by SuperCar RoadTrip - Bordeaux fiction fter my brother Jonah's funeral, I didn't fly home with my parents. Instead I stayed behind with Eva in her shoebox apartment in Tel Aviv and spent a couple nights 93 learning to go down on her, an act that felt surprisingly natural once I got used to the right-up-close-ness of it. I'd never been with another woman before, but we didn't talk about that. Mostly we were quiet or talked about Jonah. Though Eva and I had met for the first time at his funeral, she'd been serving with him for over a year, and he'd shown me many pictures of the two of them in their sand-green IDF uniforms, their arms slung around one another's shoulders in the casual way of soldiers everywhere. In e-mails he'd referred to her breezily as "my best bud," but when he'd come home on leave the last time, he'd gotten uncharacteristically wasted on a twelve-pack of High Life and said to me, "I can't stand it, Miri.
