Lydia likes to list off her prizes after a shopping trip the same way Lizzie likes to list off the little treasures she finds on thrift store bookshelves and they both resigned themselves a long time ago to the knowledge that the other didn’t care. But this is different. Lydia still doesn’t sound the way she used to and there’s a hard edge to her voice, like she’s riding a sharp line between fury and laughter.
At least she’s not whispering.
