I took a load off, sitting down next to the bag, looking up at the sky. What did I know about myself? What did I know that Tommy hadn’t told me?
I knew I had itchy, sore feet, a mother somewhere, a Fancy Room in Nebraska, a wealthy boyfriend, and someone named Shane floating around in my imagination. I loved green apples.
It wasn’t nearly enough. I needed to fill in more blanks. On my own. I closed my eyes. Inhaled.
I had breath, a heartbeat, and—someplace locked deep inside—a history.I willed it to come back again. It didn’t. A sweet, fruity breeze laid its fingers through my hair. I was tired, so very. I leaned into a wide-trunked tree behind me. The bark was rough against my skin. It was about as real as I’d felt in over a week. I dug in, inviting cuts, snags, slits, blood. Then they could type me. I could visit the doctor and demand to know my DNA. Ana Lisa Carcossi’s DNA. Because that’s who I was. At least that’s what Tommy said. My breathing steadied. I kept my eyes shut. A strumming started, like the plucking of a fiddle chord. The same chord, over and over. And then I was gone.
