“Good morning, Wanda. This is my friend, Nikki Lane. We’re both looking for something to wear to a dinner dance. What do you have to show us?”
Wanda sized Nikki up in a few seconds flat and deemed he unworthy of help. She bustled away and returned with another clerk. “This is Tina,” she told Nikki. “She’ll be working with you, ma’am,”
“That’s fine,” Nikki agreed. She didn’t want that snooty Wanda helping her. Who did she think she was to look down her nose a customer?
Tina led Nikki into a large dressing room mirrored on every wall. She saw several comfortable chairs scattered around the room and wondered why they needed them. Who wanted to try on clothes with other people watching?
Tina had an idea what she wanted Nikki to try. She brought a claret red gown for Nikki to look at. “This would be perfect with your coloring. Would you like to try it, or would you prefer to look atsomething else?”
Nikki had never seen such a beautiful dress, and she wanted to see how it would look on her. “I’ll try it,” she said.
She removed her clothes and wished that Tina would go away and leave her in private. Shamefully, her bra didn’t match her panties, and her panties had a huge Clorox stain.
