    Sometimes Coley wonders what it's like where Cam is. Some days Coley is sick with guilt, other days with envy. Cameron could be getting fixed, right now, while Coley stays home, dizzy, wrong. Cameron getting better while Coley gets worse, every day, in secret. Sometimes Coley relives that night and wakes up feverish, pulsing, terrified to be alive.

    She excuses herself to go to the bathroom. Behind the closed door, she presses a hand to her jangling heartbeat, every breath a sob of relief.

    Janine is an excellent painter. Her strokes are elegant and precise. Sometimes, while they're being instructed, Janine paints off to the side, and Coley loses herself staring at the canvas, at Janine's small, careful hand moving easily over the colors. She never hesitates, never seems to need to think about where to put the brush---here a smear, there a fleck---she doesn't stop. She is the kind of person who makes everything she does look deliberate.

    A warmth bubbles up inside Coley, the familiar reassuring sensation of being well-liked. Also, happiness.

    Later, locked in Coley's childhood bedroom with her crayons and her Cabbage Patch Doll, they have their first and last real fight. Coley loses.
