VIII. Patricia’s awakening

It was a solemn observance. With each layer she put away the loose fantasies of the night before and put a demure face on her feelings.

The tights went on. The radio turned on. The slip-on shoes secured. Nothing owed to no-one.

She was now duty bound and ready for the day.
