Blood Below the Skin
This short narrative chronicles a week in the lives of three teenage girls. They are high school classmates from different social circles, who form a bond in the wake of an unanticipated incident. Two of the girls are falling in love with each other against all expectations and the third girl is forced to mother her own mother after her father vanishes. Each girl seeks comfort within the walls of her bedroom where the music blasting from the turntable provides a magical synchronicity between them all.
