    Summary

    Beth is long undone, slowly melting in his arms to merge into his warm figure nestled in hers. A symbiosis, a sense of belonging. She feels vulnerable in this foetal position; naked in a liquid state without any covers. Her body feels lightweight more than ever. It feels right.

    “Liza… I’d like to… dance with you.”

    Summary

    “Lizochka, look at you: red hair, red lips, red cheeks — what a little beast you are.”
     
    As time passed, she realised that she could never be enough; that love could never be enough on its own. And many, many years later, eventually, she wouldn’t see the crimson red lipstick stains on her husband’s pristine white shirt that she had washed early at dawn, left to dry in the morning, and ironed before going to bed so that Vasily wouldn’t feel compelled to put on another shirt which was not as white as that one.

    Did she stand a chance at all?

    Summary

    “I like beautiful things,” was all Beth said to compensate for the grandiloquence as she took a sip of champagne, her lilt cheerful; nevertheless, unable to hide the anxiety due to having been found reading a very simple letter.

    A very simple letter, indeed.

    Vasily Borgov, on the heels of his defeat in Moscow, is given a new mission: to convince the American Champion to defect to the Soviets, by any means necessary.

    Finally, stopping and looking into Vasily's eyes, Beth understood everything. There was bitter truth and regret in them. Understanding and caring. Beth started to cry without noticing it. Tears kept coming from her eyes as she looked at the Borgov. He walked over to her and hugged her. He hugged tightly. Then Beth began to sob into his shoulder.
