The story “Foundlings” originally appeared in the anthology Brave New Love.
The secret to accomplishing anything is to break down the process into a series of manageable steps. I’d tried explaining this to Emily before, but she always thinks with her heart, not her head. My attempts to be rational were always deemed boring, until she got the positive. Then the fact that I could make a plan of action was suddenly the most fascinating thing in the universe. More interesting even than Robbie, who promptly (and like the cowardly loser I always told her he was) vanished off the face of the earth.
