Guava Skin

Tired of listening to Luis' complaints about the situation in Venezuela, Elena found relief in cooking and eating guava jam. One day, the guavas had more maggots than usual, so she decided to go to the local market and change them. There, she met Juan, the new fruit vendor, who awoke feelings in her she long considered forgotten.
