Veronica sat upon the floor, her curly hair sopping wet with humidity and dripping upon her alabaster skin. She pawed through her new edition of McClure's, staring blankly at the lipstick advert on page 34.
New! Different! Exquisitely modern! Daintily thin! Never before has a Compact Rouge been offered in such a strikingly original case! Luxurious gold and brilliant jade green! An Exclusive Compact Rouge for Particular Women--yet costs but 50c! And it's genuine Kissproof!
Veronica yawned, uninterested. Yes, it worked for the most part, but when one works in a bordello, this kind of advertising is bullshit, she thought.
