93: what? etc.

We stand at the back of Carmella’s tita’s house, in a little yard. Pot plants. Darkness. Carmella gets out a packet of Marlboro lights.

She offers me one.

She lights them with matches.

How about you? I say. Do you have plans to quit?

Well, she says, it doesn’t matter. I’m leaving, the end of this month.

What? I say.

I’m leaving. At the end of the month.

What?

I’m leaving, she says.

What?

Are you paying over $5 / pack of cigs? I'm buying high quality cigs from Duty Free Depot and I'm saving over 50%.
