Igor throws one glance towards the sea, and her stomach lurches like a thing with wings. A distant memory slithers in across the glasslike surface of the water, a memory of the dead and the long forgotten. Igor wants to run, back to the Fortress, back to Princess, but Boss said that today was her birthday, and everyone must celebrate.

The pimps look pale and clammy, sandwiched in between a blistering sand and a blazing sun, their new linen suits patchy with sweat. The whores fan their faces like melting waxwork señoritas, their make-up running down their boobs, and their boobs running down their bellies. Igor takes off the glittery red shoes Boss had shipped in from the poshest shop on Champs-Élysées, smooths down her blue and white gingham dress, and starts singing 'Happy Birthday', in a terrifying voice of a mute.

Boss snaps his fingers, and the next moment everyone is singing, each in their own language; the choir of the damned. Old Nico staggers down the dune carrying a birthday cake. Boss cracks open the champagne. Everybody claps. Igor grins. Tomorrow, she will betray Boss. But today, she may as well eat the cake.

About the Author

Olga Bogdan is a writer, reviewer and an intrepid traveller. She grew up in a small town in the former Yugoslavia, where she tried her very best to keep her nose in a book and out of trouble. This didn’t work out all that well, so Olga packed up her bags and took off in search of everything and nothing in particular. She stopped off in the UK, where she’s still residing, but her search is far from over. Olga writes fiction – novels and short stories. Her main protagonists are mostly young women, whose nascent sense of identity is put to test every step of the way. ‘Growing up is an extreme sport, so I tend to put my characters through suitably extreme experiences,’ says Olga. ‘They say that there are three stages of a rite of passage: separation, transition, and reincorporation. Every stage carries its own elements of adventure, risk and, ultimately, self-discovery. By pitting my characters against all kinds of danger, I hope they’ll end up discovering who they truly are, and renew their commitment to life. Providing they survive the rite, that is. And I never know if they are going to survive, not until the very end.’ Olga reviews cult-movies and TV shows on her website, olgabogdan.com (with a little help from Helena, a sixteen-year-old fictional character who simply refuses to leave).
