The hot scent of burning sugar lit the air and hung heavy in the rafters of the dressing room.

“Hell no. I only have one left,” Mikhail protested.
“And I need it. I’ll need it out there,” Anya said sweetly. She drew her black hair over one shoulder, tilting her head to one side and smiling at him.
