When Raquel begins telling her story, Pardalita has already entered her life. She didn’t enter in a sudden way, but rather slowly and subtly, first in the school hallways and later at theater rehearsals. Raquel only knows her by sight, but is constantly waiting to see her again and begins to notice little details, like the tag on Pardalita’s sweater touching the skin of her neck.
Raquel wonders: “How far away can you be from someone without them noticing you don’t want any distance at all”?
