Wait! Don’t go…

Vintage gothic romance covers- a beautiful young woman- a mansion… a single light in the highest window.  A fabulous outfit – a look of trepidation.  It’s fun to imagine her story might be just from the cover…

Don’t be nervous

Maggie, dear.

You’re perfect.

The dress, the pink bow

your nails- a brilliant shade of vermillion.

He doesn’t like to be kept waiting,

so you’d best go,

or maybe

you should turn and run.
