Star is tired of her life with her mother on the carnival circuit. Her father is long gone after beating both Star and her mother some years back. The only bright spots in Star's life are her memories of Grandma Macha--and those were beginning to fade--and her boyfriend Dragon. When Star's mother picks up another dangerous stranger, can Star remember her true nature before it's too late? (This short story was first published in The Splendour Falls.)
