If there was one thing Anastasia Skarkovsky prided herself on, it was her practicality. Ever since her father left her on a railway station without a single word, she had to rely on her resourcefulness to survive.

Traveling from town to town, taking a job here and there, searching for a dry place to sleep…Anastasia soon realized that life is much easier if you disguise yourself as a boy.

Unless you ran into someone who likes boys, too.

Washing her bloody panties in the river, she whispered: “No use to cry over it, Stasy.”

After all, she was a practical girl.
