Summer is their skin flushed from the furnace in the sky.
One night Zander and I took Cora and Sam hiking. Her whole body was glowing from the heat of her tiny muscles and the heat of the air. Her blue eyes were electric and her hair a dancing flame on top of her head. She stunned me. Then, she opened her mouth to talk about smashing lizards with rocks or just to say randomly "poop". In those moments Zander and I point our fingers at each other and say "She's your daughter!"
