Nine

Nice short story in The Atlantic. Really nice if, like me, you remember being a nine-year-old girl. Author Aryn Kyle beautifully captures the wisps of wants of that age, the ones that stay forever no matter how many more birthdays you have.

"They will stand to the side and watch her be alone". Lovely line, that.
