She had brown skin, but not so deep that she was never mistaken for white, and striking jet black eyes and stick straight, razored hair that fell to her shoulders. She wasn’t very tall, but she was thin, with long, thin legs, and while she didn’t seem sick or have any other visible signs of an illness or disability, something about her thinness bothered you, it didn’t seem good. That was probably partly because of her strict, upright posture, her arms always crossed over her chest, blood red nails tapping impatiently (or, anxiously) against her own forearm, and the way her eye brows were just slightly raised, and how her full brown lips were always set in a tight, thin line. It looked as if she’d been asked to appraise something once and had found it lacking, and her face had gotten stuck that way.

She was truly bilingual, and spoke as quickly in English as she did in Spanish. She was in the habit of firing questions at your rapidly, as if she were your boss, or your mother. Feeling like her employee wasn’t all that bad (she’d found that some women actually found that exciting, and that she found it exciting when they found it exciting), but her iciness felt impossible to charm or thaw. She didn’t exactly mean to seem so haughty, but she also didn’t not mean to be like that. It was very often a useful tool in navigating both her job and life, but she ironically had what felt like very little control over it. There was a constant and visible tension in her face and in her arms and trunk, and few other human beings seemed to perceive that whatever discomfort it caused other people, it also caused her a great deal of discomfort and pain.

She’d accepted this, and tended to be blunt, to spare everyone involved from more interaction with her than was strictly necessary. She asked her series of questions, got the information she needed and synthesized it as quickly as possible, and then went straight to work on formulating a plan of action. She took as long as she needed to perfect her plans, but she wasn’t one to agonize. Life had made her a decisive and capable problem solver, which could be annoying. But her few loved ones quietly appreciated her ability to figure out what needed to be done and follow through on it. They loved her for unrelenting toughness, her refusal to be intimidating into doing anything less than what was best for them. It was admittedly difficult to express this to her; she bristled at affection even when she wanted it. She was adamantine, and unsentimental, but she was also protective. She might not let you in, but she could and would build another wall around the two you, if that was what you needed to feel safe.
