By the time that I left the coffee shop that afternoon, the world around me looked completely different. There was a smile on my lips that hadn't been there in weeks and my brain was buzzing. I barely even felt the cold as I hurried back to the office. There was work to be done. A huge amount. But I was going to do it. It was my chance and I was going to give it everything that I could.

Chapter Nineteen

Cristina

"Did you get that weird flyer in the mail today?"

I held my phone between my ear and my shoulder as I walked down the hallway toward the kitchen. The teapot was screaming on the eye of the stove before I could get to it, muffling Constance's voice on the other end of the line.

"Hold on," I said. "I can't hear you." I moved the teapot over and turned off the stove. "Alright. What were you saying?"

"I asked what flyer."

I picked up the piece of thick cardstock that had been made into an oversized postcard and looked down at it as I leaned with my hip against the counter.

"It says it's for a Black Friday in March sale."

"Black Friday in March?" my sister asked. "Hold on." I listened as she ruffled through her mail. "Wait, yes, I did get one."

"It says it's for some store called Partridge. Do you know that store?"

"I've never heard of it." I flipped the card over and looked at the address. A small map in the corner showed that the store was located in a shopping center not far from my house, but I had never seen it. "What do you think it's all about?"

"I have no idea, but it says that it's going to be exactly like a traditional Black Friday sale, so I'm in. How about you?"

"It's March," I said. "I'm still barely over Christmas. What do we need with another Black Friday sale?"

"It's never too early to shop for Christmas," Constance said, sounding horrified at my lack of seasonally inappropriate spirit. "Besides, there's no law that says that what you buy at a Black Friday sale has to be for Christmas. We have a big family. There are birthdays coming up and at least three of our cousins are pregnant. I think it's closer to five, but a couple of them aren't talking yet. You can only use turkey as an excuse for so long, though. And maybe there'll be a wedding or two sometime soon."

The mention of a wedding made my heart sink and I felt familiar emotion that I had been fighting for months creeping back into my mind.

"Yeah," I said.

"Oh, Cristina," Constance said, the excitement that had been building in her voice now gone. "I'm sorry. I didn't even think. I'm sorry I said that."

"It's alright," I said, shaking my head in that way that seemed to mean I still hadn't grasped the idea that people couldn't see me when I was talking to them over the phone. "It is what it is.
