It turns smoothly and pulls into a space marked with a sign proclaiming that the spot is reserved for visitors of the Chancellor’s Office. Whoever’s inside, whoever is driving, is already off limits. My fists clench, but what am I supposed to do? Yell at some visiting official? Then the car door opens and the driver gets out. He’s tall and thin with sandy-blond hair.

I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what to think. Against my better judgment, that little spark of something ignites in my stomach. A flame dances, ready to catch fire. But I have to be vigilant. “On the contrary,” I hear myself say. “This morning, you cut in front of me in the parking lot. You were three inches from me. And…” I hold up my sleeve, showing the damage. He winces. “So when I said you didn’t see me, I meant it. ” His eyes shut. ” “It’s okay,” I tell him. ” 2. BLAKE The kitchen window of my house high up in the Berkeley Hills overlooks fog-shrouded waters, interrupted by the bulk of San Francisco to the south and the illuminated towers of the Golden Gate Bridge further north.

My little sister just started high school, and now everything she does will be part of her record for college. She does well when she’s on her meds. But my mom doesn’t always believe what doctors tell her. There’s a little bit of a pause. “Yes, yes,” my mother says. “We got it. ” My heart sinks. ” I try to sound calm. “Is Dad okay? ” I can remember the last time Dad’s leg acted up.
