    Summary

    ‘I’m getting married,’ Lena breathes emphatically, entreatingly, and her attention snaps to like a band pulled taut. She watches with increasingly disaffected pliancy as Lena seizes both her hands in one of her own and flashes her left at her, right under her nose. ‘Say something,’ Lena laughs, a little too breathless, a little too conscious. ‘You’re making me nervous.’

    Don’t, she thinks she could’ve said, and the vehemence of the very thought startles her. Why? is a little better, syntactically, in theory—less cruel, an open question, room for conversation. Really? is enthusiastic, breakwater, appropriate, adequate.

    ‘Oh, god,’ she says instead.

    Or, alternatively:

    In which Lena announces her engagement, to everyone’s immense horror and Kara’s heartbroken disbelief, and everything that follows after.

    Summary

    The woman who opens the door is nothing like Kara expected.

    She’s not a housewife. She’s young, probably Kara’s age, and alarmingly pretty. She looks loose, and carefree, and stylish. She looks like a catalog model. No…even better. Those women don’t have half the curves that this woman does, they don’t have her subtle smile or her bright green eyes –

    Bright green eyes that are staring directly at Kara.

    “Can I help you?”

    OR

    Kara is a sexless housewife in 1969, feeling trapped with nowhere to go. But when mysterious, kind-hearted Lena Luthor moves in next door, hosting swinger’s parties but ignoring the men, Kara’s whole world shifts on its axis.
