    Summary

    There are three potential meanings to a red soulmark, three ways to be tied to someone through death. Daisy has never been surprised that both of her marks bled into existence as angry, vivid, crimson. She’s never been a peaceful woman, never deluded herself into thinking she could live life without re-soaking her hands in blood whenever they began to look too clean. She is surprised, though, to realize neither of her marks stand for killing.

    Summary

    Basira half-joked, “That why you tell me off for looking in the mirror too long?"

    But Teta nodded, very much not joking. "Look too long and she can get jealous of you. Pull you in, or pull herself out. Safer, you see, to keep the mirrors covered, especially when you sleep. People have gone mad from less."

    Or: Basira, the stories she grew up with, and the stories she tells herself.

    Summary

    When Basira was a teenager, one of her friends started offering tarot readings, five quid each. Over and over again, Basira’s card would come up as Strength — a woman holding a lion’s jaws shut, no fear or anger on her placid, beautiful face.

    Her friend had laughed every time, talked about symbolism— compassion, courage, patience. Controlling your raw emotions to bring calm to yourself and the situations around you.

    These days, Basira looks at Daisy, and wonders if it hadn’t been slightly more literal than that.
