This delightful and enchanting
story was chosen to appear in Bright Light Multimedia's latest anthology,
“Speaking of Love”.
For your pleasure and perusal, we present an extract from ...
"Ugly," she thought, "Ugly, ugly, ugly."
Standing in the mirror she did not like what she saw. Long, crooked toes. Fat, white thighs that wobbled when she breathed. A stomach that looked as though the only thing she ate was beer. Tiny, little mole hills,
"no way they could sustain life", she mused. Turkey-skin arms. Big, brown freckles splotched wherever they felt the need to congregate. Pasty white skin. Uneven lips. Mousey-brown, lank hair. Heaving the pretty fabric over her head, she wished the image that would stare back at her would metamorph into someone like on the TV. Some one perfect. She tugged at the dress, pulling it over her hips, and smoothing it down.
Opening the curtain, her fans, her mother and sister, marvelled at her. She cringed as fake compliments spilled from their mouths. She didn’t want to put herself through the torture of the changing room one more time so agreed, passing her money to the girl behind the counter.
