I know Ana too well. We are like sisters, now. We each know when the other is lying.
Sometimes I can’t digest my lunch I the same room with her because in her silence, she is saying to me, you don’t think I know what you did and in my silence she knows I am lying. I have to go lie on the bed in front of the fan.

-Estás enojada conmigo?- I ask her.
-Ni quiera Dios,- she says to me. -No.-
