"Get you!" says the girl who opens the door to me. "I love you."

It's the summer of 2011, and I'm standing at her door in skinny jeans and a black shirt, nonchalantly layered over a purple T-shirt that bears a print of a pair of handcuffs and the slogan "Free". Epaulets on the shirt flatter my well-proportioned shoulders, and the jeans cling to the solid contours of my calves. I am lounging, weight on one leg, hands in my pockets, watching her with frank and curious eyes.

Her name is Lisa and she's known me for years; since I was a directionless, overweight housewife with an awkward personality. This is the first time she has seen me as I am. She is as startled as I am, both of us a little thrown by the wild inversion of friendship to something less known. It is the first time I realise I am truly crossing the line.
