When your life changes forever—fundamentally tumbles off an alreadydark cliff into a holy-hell-bottomless pit of destruction—you shouldn’t be
wearing a fuzzy bathrobe.
Tessa Gomez snuggled into the plush white fabric, tightening the
wrap’s belt as peppermint tea wafted from the mug beside her. It was
October, that limbo period when it was too early in the season for her
mother to turn on the heat but too cold in the apartment for them not to.
Massachusetts was chillier than Philadelphia, somewhat, but that wasn’t the
issue; what took getting used to was the length of the cold. Here winter
started weeks earlier than it had back home.
It had been a little over a year since they’d moved to Fall River, and
still Tessa had unpacked only her clothes. There was nothing tacked onto
her beige bedroom walls, and no photos were shoved into the crease of the
mirror above her desk. She hadn’t gone on a single date. And most of the
people she hung out with were actually her brother Vik’s friends.
Tessa’s cell phone pinged, and her eyes flicked from the rom-com on
her laptop to the photo in the group text. Kids from school were huddled
around a bonfire, red Solo cups in hand. Party at Izzy’s!
She ignored it.
Her brother disapproved of the New and Improved Tessa—the girl who
stayed home on Friday nights to finish articles for the school newspaper,
who deleted her entire social media presence without regret, and who
legitimately saw chilling with a movie as a personal reward. It was as if
every evening she spent huddled under her down comforter only increased
Vik’s worry that he was losing the Tessa he grew up with—only she didn’t
know who that was anymore. Or maybe she didn’t want to remember.
Vik would graduate high school this spring. Tessa next spring. And
until then, she had to power through.
Tessa focused on the movie as she heard Tía Dolores pull the cork on a
bottle of wine in the kitchen. Their apartment, which sat above a
laundromat painted obnoxiously pink, had only six rooms—four bedrooms,
one bathroom, and a combo living room–kitchen. Tía Dolores and her
girlfriend, Frankie, leased the place three years ago, after Frankie graduated
from law school. Tía Dolores was Tessa’s godmother, and her mom’s sister,
and she had insisted her door was always open—especially after the
funeral. It was Tessa who had convinced her mom and her brother that they
needed a change, somewhere devoid of memories painfully erupting in
twisted masks every time they turned a city block.
