Senior year trip, Christmas break. It was a cabin way up in the Sierra Nevada mountains with feet of snow outside, and something like fifteen of them were there, plus two chaperones.

Natasha was there. Jessica had begged her parents, done her homework, aced tests, held her tongue like it was fastened to her jaw with iron strips, though she hated the snow and skiing sounded like an expensive way to break both your legs. Natasha was soft and quiet, with long hair in braids and big eyes and a sly smile, and bright makeup that made her look like some kind of mystic queen or ancient goddess. She sat away from the others that night, doing up her eyelids like a night sky filled with stars. It wasn't her makeup Jessica obsessed over anymore.

Mostly, it was her smile.

Jessica's heart raced as Natasha seemed to catch her staring, sitting over by the fire and ignoring the conversation around her. The other girl looked curious... then gave her that smile and tilted her head in invitation. The world stopped.

Somehow, she stood and walked over and was still alive by the end of it.
