Inside this Book – Do you remember where you were when the Meteor hit? I’ve never understood why people phrase it as a question, because of course you remember. I was in the mountains with Nathaniel. He had inherited this cabin from his father and we used to go up there for stargazing. By which I mean: sex. Oh, don’t pretend that you’re shocked. Nathaniel and I were a healthy young married couple, so most of the stars I saw were painted across the inside of my eyelids. If I had known how long the stars were going to be hidden, I would have spent a lot more time outside with the telescope. We were lying in the bed with the covers in a tangled mess around us. The morning light filtered through silver snowfall and did nothing to warm the room. We’d been awake for hours, but hadn’t gotten out of bed yet for obvious reasons. Nathaniel had his leg thrown over me and was snuggled up against my side, tracing a finger along my collarbone in time with the music on our little battery- powered transistor radio. I stretched under his ministrations and patted his shoulder. “Well, well … my very own ‘Sixty Minute Man. ’” He snorted, his warm breath tickling my neck. “Does that mean I get another fifteen minutes of kissing?” “If you start a fire.” “I thought I already did.” But he rolled up onto his elbow and got out of bed.
Inside this book –The Calculating Stars PDF Book by Mary Robinette Kowal – I kept running the numbers in my head after the radio finally, finally reported the news. It was easier than thinking about the big picture. About the fact that we lived in D.C. That we knew people there. That my parents were— From D.C., it would take a little over twenty-four minutes for the airblast to hit. I tapped the dashboard clock. “It should hit soon.” “Yeah.” My husband covered his face with his hands and leaned forward against the steering wheel. “Were your parents…?” “Home. Yes.” I could not stop shaking. The only breaths I could draw were too fast and too shallow. I clenched my jaw and held my breath for a moment, with my eyes squeezed shut. The seat shifted as Nathaniel wrapped his arms around me and pulled me close. He bowed his head over me so that I was sealed in a little cocoon of tweed and wool. His par ents had been older than mine and had passed away some years ago, so he knew what I needed, and just held me. “I just thought … I mean, Grandma is a hundred and three. I thought Daddy was going to go forever.” He made a sharp inhalation, as if he’d been stabbed.
