“there was a time when this home was her domain. Sometimes she felt proud of it, sometimes she felt tied to it, but whether it was a burden or a blessing, it was hers to keep. She’d known better than anyone what this house needed; lately it’d become one of the few aspects of her life she could control. there is no corner, no ridge along the steps or crack along the wall, that she doesn’t know like her own body. the house may never have been the sanctuary she’d always dreamed of, but at least it carried no surprises. It was comfortable.”

“he is truly worried. Ever since Marabela left, he has been careful not to ask anything of her. Not for a section of the paper in the morning. Not for a kiss good night in the evening. He has not even asked her for a quick glance to check if he’s shaved his sideburns evenly. If she’s left him again, he’ll have no one to blame but himself. He should have stuck to what was working for them—ask nothing and expect no problems in return.”
Natalia Sylvester, Chasing the Sun
“Marabela always says that things are funniest when they have hints of truth to them. Perhaps, he thinks, they’re also saddest when that truth has faded. Enough putting”
