When Av told her he’d send Dulcie, Zelda’s face turned ugly. She resembled a pit bull about to strike.
If anyone had seen that face, the legend of the sweet, helpful Zelda would have exploded.
But no one saw her.
Taking a breath, Zelda replied in a bouncy voice as if she would love to see Dulcie.
She then left the bar for the bathroom, washed her face, drank water,went into the booth and cursed a long stream.
She took another breath, washed her face again, smiled.
Emerging from the bathroom, she came out and worked until she sweat. In about an hour, Dulcie entered.
