Tess Pretending to be Kind and Generous

"Tess Pretending to be Kind and Generous"



Justice "Yeah, he's just a lover", she said when I asked about Frank. The intonation of Tess's "just" tells me way more about her, and about me, than it does about him. Tess knows I hooked up with Frank a couple of times while I was sort-of-dating Caroline's cousin Tommy, so we both understand the subtleties of her "just". I can smell the lilac shampoo she borrowed from me two weeks ago in Tess's hair.
