Lola is twelve during this scene; she describes herself as tall and thin, with green eyes and straight hair. Lola’s mother takes her hand and guides it to feel a lump in her breast. Lola has a premonition in that moment that something in her life is going to change. Lola refers to the feeling as a bruja, or witch, feeling. Within the next few months, her mother has her breast removed and starts chemotherapy.
