    Summary

    A tiny change in words, a minute beat, and Héloïse spills forward, a mess of hands. She slides her hand into Marianne’s hair- half-wet, she must have bathed while Héloïse was reading- and bares her teeth to her. Marianne doesn’t look scared. Why would she? ‘You dance at the Bolshoi,’ she had said, a tacit unspoken understanding. Héloïse had flinched, maybe, or something had given her away. Not a Bolshoi dancer. You dance at the Bolshoi.

    Summary

    Marianne is an art consultant with an interest in history, which she has been channeling into her side project: uncovering the story behind a painting of a woman on fire. When new evidence emerges, Marianne finds herself on a journey of small discoveries.

    Inspired by this post that grey wrote on Tumblr, and by the novel she mentions in the post, Possession by AS Byatt. The title is from "Shrike" by Hozier, which I discovered on a Portrait-inspired Spotify playlist entitled "the poet's choice".

    Summary

    Eight years after they parted ways, Héloïse and Marianne find each other in Milan.

    Caught in a sunbeam, Héloïse was a stern black column in the doorway, dressed head-to-toe for mourning. Her hair, nun-like, was hidden behind a neat little waterfall of lace.

    Summary

    “Turn around.”

    When Marianne hears that voice, all air gets knocked out of her lungs. She freezes, completely paralyzed just one step away from the exit of the theatre. She could just walk away, pretend she imagined the voice–maybe she did after all those years–and go on with her life without the agony that comes with clinging on to hope. But she cannot resist, like she couldn’t before. So, Marianne turns around, and when she does, her eyes fill with tears.

    (Or, Héloïse sees Marianne too.)
