“I hate to interrupt all the love,” Miguel said.

“But we’re here to see Portia. Are any of you Portia?”

Miguel smiled and scanned the crowd. I sat up and did the same. My tail swept the sidewalk.

The kids stepped back and pointed. One girl stood on the front walk. Her hands dug deep into her pockets. The girl looked up at a woman who leaned against a huge cement planter at the top of the stoop. The woman smiled and nodded at Portia.

Portia pulled a hand from her pocket and waved. “I’m Portia,” she said.

I stood up. My tail sliced the air.

Miguel walked us forward a few steps. Portia froze—straighter than the parapet above her. Miguel told me to sit. So I did.

The woman at the top of the stoop hopped down the stairs, her hand straight out.

“Pleasure to meet you,” she said. “I’m Nance Obello Tornsten. Portia’s mother.”
