“Uta’s Escape”

My story, “Uta’s Escape,” is now up on Tin House Flash Fridays and The Guardian.

“Two days before the synchronized swimming nationals, our Flyer vanished. I don’t mean she didn’t show up to training, and I don’t mean she left the pool through a door and didn’t re-enter the door. In the ninth hour of training, we threw Uta Franke into the air and Uta Franke did not land.”
