“H-hello, ma’am,” he said.

She coughed, and a cloud of dust seemed to puff out of her lungs. “I haven’t seen you before,” she said. “What’s your name?”

“L-Lycus.”

“L…ycus.” The name rolled in her mouth with the consistency of mud. She smiled up at him and her lips cracked. “What a sweet name.”

Lycus was hit with a wave of desperate sympathy. “Did I-I wake you up from a nap, or—? I c-can leave if you need.”

“No, no,” she said, taking his hand in hers. “I don’t...get visitors often. I’m a bit of a…a secret.”

“You’re not a secret, Aunt Mari,” Kei said quickly.

She waved him away. “I know you’re not ashamed of me, boy. That isn’t what I meant.” Then, a whisper to Lycus, “They’re afraid of me.”

Kei looked immediately uncomfortable. “What d-do you mean?” Lycus asked.

Aunt Mari leaned in towards Lycus and spoke in a conspirator whisper. “I went into the Tatters.”

“I h-heard.”

She pulled up the sleeves of her long woolen sweater and unwrapped a bandage on her hand. For a moment, it looked like Kei was going to stop her. “The Tatters…took a bit of me when I left.” Her arms were speckled with patches of fraying fabric, like she was nothing more than a plush toy. At the look of mild horror on Lycus’s face, she let out a full-body laugh that quickly fell into more dusty wheezing. “Don’t make that face, boy. It’s not very flattering. Besides, I figure it’s no great loss. Know why?”

Lycus stood silently until it was clear she was waiting for an answer. “I-I don’t kn-know,” he said. “Wh-why?”

The grin Aunt Mari shot him looked as if it were ready to tear the corners of her mouth open. “I got it back,” she hissed. “The Tatters…took a bit of me…and I took a bit of it.”
