Little Faces

This week's story was first published in SCI FICTION in 2005. It has been selected and introduced for this week's issue by Rachel Swirsky. The blood woke Yalnis. It ran between her thighs, warm and slick, cooling, sticky. She pushed back from the stain on the silk, bleary with sleep and love, rousing to shock and stabbing pain.
