In a low, private voice, her mother would threaten Sondra alone with mayhem for all the badness we’d gotten up to. The mothers of my white friends, in contrast, never hesitated to include me in a scolding when we broke or spilled things. But in Sondra’s house. I was considered beneath responsibility. Her mother would let me out the door with an averted face and turn away swiftly, almost shrugging, as if to say: Well, what, after all, can one expect. The difference. I came to realize, was that I was not treated as a member of the family.

1 knew, of course, that Sondra was different from me. but the difference, I felt, was in her effrontery and her bossy alertness. Her hair was long and crimped naturally, like the tassels of the woolen rugs that I surreptitiously unraveled on our living room floor. Mine was long and lank. Her eyes tilted upward slightly at the corners and the eyelashes curled more acutely than mine did; her skin was yellow-brown and mine yellow-pink; the palms of her hands were softer and the moons of her nails showed more clearly. But I felt that she and I were different only in w ays that everyone was different. I could not know that because of these differences our paths would diverge as irrevocably as the tracks of two trains, one heading east, one west.

When I was ten or so. our differences propelled us to opposite corners in the schoolyard. Sondra was claimed by her black group; they played different skipping games, listened to different music and doodled different catchphrases on their notebook covers. Suddenly she had a new body language. and dressed in the bomber jackets and rolled-cufl painter’s pants that black girls wore in 1970s San Francisco. She carried a comb with sharp teeth as an accessory1 of allegiance. Suddenly when I passed her outside the schoolyard gates, she was leaning against the brick wall, tougher and cooler than 1 was. tougher and cooler than I remembered she herself was; and when I passed she had her new girlfriends around her and she did not, maybe she could not, let her curly-lashed eyes, as familiar to me almost as my own, betray the least hint ol what had been and still, still was between us. She as much as dared me to come any closer. I was history and I knew better than to go up to her and try to claim back what she knew I knew7 about her; claim her back, cramp her style, complicate her new identity. I too, doubtless, in her eyes, had been claimed by my whiteness, though that was invisible to me. And I was history not because I had changed or because she had changed, but because we had imperceptibly outgrown our goofy humanity and grown into the color of our skins.
