2, from “Phoenix and Styx”:
They consumed the food, all of
it. They drank the wine he’d brought, all of it. By the time they were
finished, the flowers were white-gray ash in their vase, and some small flakes
settled on their heaped dessert spoons. Neither of them minded when they
swallowed the truth of her fire.

After the meal, she broke the
temple-silence first. “What am I?”

burn them away.
