A quote by William Pickens
“Shit, it’s uh, it’s um… It’s – …”
Mika forgets her new phone number. She’d started to rattle off her old one and then stopped part way through. “I had to change my number because… You don’t need to know that, um – …”
After twelve years of the same ten digits it takes a while to update. Mika thinks about the brain and plasticity and how memory works.
She sees a flash of Kyle sledding. She blinks. She sees Izzy there, too, eating snow off to the side.
Mika digs out her notebook. She knows she wrote her new number down in there.
