1. Emma’s dream: August 15, 2010
I dream I am cutting a brain apart like a flower.
2. Emma’s summer camp story, written over a course of six hours (fragment #1)
She begins the movements, feet striking the floor, and somehow her stance makes her noticeable again, marking her contours in the evening light. Her fingers grip the taut bow string and she pulls, pulls her hardest, releasing. He catches glimpses of her cheek, a halved apricot. Just as Toru knows that the surface of the sun is hot, so too he knows that her skin would be cool to the touch, like new fruit.
3. Emma’s English project, first trimester of junior year (fragment #1)
Darwin tells us that survival is only for the fittest. Traditionally, “the fittest” means the individual best suited to their environment. This definition also holds true to the modern human world, but with one minor adjustment. “The fittest” often means “the most beautiful”.
4. Emma’s diary: June 2010 (fragment #1)
GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY I HOPE YOU WILL BE NOBLE
I adore you, all the time.
