“There was a lake in the wood,” Marco continues with his story, “My dad … when I was little, my dad built a tire swing from one of the trees that bent over the water, so I always liked to play there. The fireflies liked it too – well, not so much when dad and I decided to try and catch them in some of the glass jars we had lying around.”
The mental image makes me smile, imagining a little, baby Freckles running around in tatty shorts and a floppy hat, swinging around and oversized net, trying to scoop up clouds of the glowing bugs.
“I wasn’t very good at it,” Marco admits, his voice becoming a little quiet, and maybe … maybe a touch more reserved as well. “Dad … dad, he was much better at it. But then again, parents always are, aren’t they? They … know how to do everything.”
“Did Mina go with you?” I ask, seeking detail for the picture I’m painting in my head now. I visualise her: gappy-toothed like she is now, but just a whole lot shorter and chubbier with baby fat, shaking the jars of fireflies in her stubby fingers – because hell, I have first-hand experience that she’s a sadist like that.
Marco smiles, a tinge of something wistful, and nods, as one firefly from our personal show dips down lower than the others, zipping past Marco’s flank. He moves his hand to see if he can catch it, but it easily evades his fingers.
“Yeah. When she was born, I was old enough to take her to the lake by myself, so when she learned to walk, we’d go down there just after sunset in the summers, and we’d fill a few jars, watch them for a bit, until mom called us in … and then we’d let them all go, and I’d piggyback her home, because she’d be too tired to walk.”
OKAY theprophetlemonade SO I AM SO TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH DROPLETS OKAY. And when reading that scene, I sort of just imagined how chubby cute kid Jean maybe spent a summer in Jinae? I kind of also imagined that Jean’s mom would force him to wear big sun hats to cover his fragile pasty ass skin.
Also Mina and Marco have bigger jars because obvs they’re experts at catching fireflies.
Jean forced his mom to buy him a jar of jam and emptied it out so that he could partake in the catching of fireflies…
P.S. please look at this in High-Res
