    Summary

    She's obviously a member of staff, but there's something different about her. Her hair is dirty blonde, rather than the bottle blonde or glossy chestnut of her colleagues, and it's starting to fall out of its regulation bun. Her make up is heavy, dark eyeliner and red lips, but it's out of balance with what she's wearing on her face, she wears no bronzer or highlighter. It makes her look a bit startled. Trixie kinda likes it.

    She walks directly to Trixie.

    "Trixie?"

    Trixie nods and gets to her feet.

    "Good morning, my name is Katya and I'll be your massage therapist today."

    Summary

    “I didn’t want to lie to you too,” Brian said. “I don’t do that and I’m not gonna start. But I need to get – out. Away. I don’t know.”

    He sighed and rubbed at his forehead.

    There was a strange sound from the other end of the line, like something – maybe the phone itself – was being fumbled by a body in motion. “Trixie, are you okay?” Katya said, and then, in the same breath, “Can I come over? I want to come over. I think maybe I should come over.”

    Summary

    In fifteen minutes of walking in the yellow-orange blaze of the late-night, Trixie learns of Katya’s most imminent personal growth goals.

    She wants to relearn the violin this summer, after years of no practice. She wants to convince her family that she didn’t make a mistake six months ago when she quit her job teaching at the French Cultural Center in Boston and moved to comedy’s mecca to start her life over (supplemented by tutoring at UIC and waitressing). She wants to be a better home cook and move into a nice apartment. She wants to get a dog. Most of all, she wants to make friends here so she isn’t lonely anymore.

    (Trixie is a sound tech for various stand-up showcases all over Chicago. Enter Katya, a bright light of dark humor in a sea of bad comedic timing.)

    Summary

    The man offers his hand to her. Katya’s first thought upon gazing down at it, the dirt-filled fingernails, the dinner-plate sized palm, is that he could smother her. She squats down and takes his hand in hers and shakes it, makes sure to grip his hand tight with her fingers like she does with every executive she has to meet, to show that she means business.

    (Katya goes on a summer retreat into the backwoods of Wisconsin.)
