“Ma’am, the fire department is on the way. Remain calm and stay on the line
Tamsen Hayes clutched the cell phone tight to her ear, wincing as the
movement pulled her sensitive skin.
“Thank you,” she spoke into the phone, trying her best to remain as still as
possible. Every slight movement caused the plaster paste that had hardened to
a cement-like substance on her body to pull and tug at the skin and fine hairs
covering her chest and stomach. She stared down at the offensively bright
white cast covering the front of her from just below her clavicle all the way
down to her belly button.
How dare it look so innocent when it was literally baking her skin as she
stared? She’d forgotten how hot casting made the skin…among other things
she forgot. Thank goodness she’d only done a front casting and hadn’t
wrapped the damn thing all the way around her torso.
At least the 911 operator didn’t laugh when she explained her predicament.
This stranger on the other end of the call was her lifeline right now, because
Tamsen was about five seconds away from a major freak out. How could she
have forgotten to put the oil on her skin before starting? She’d learned all the
nuances of plaster casting in Art 101 her freshman year of undergrad. She’d
never forgotten the oil before.
It puts the lotion on the skin or else it gets the hose again.
The inside joke she and her classmates used to chant so they remembered
to lubricate their subjects for safety’s sake had flown right out of her head.
Must be all the stress she’d been under lately.
Tamsen had what her dad
liked to call “scattered artist brain” on the best of days, but over the past few
weeks, her focus had been stretched even thinner. Her father was about to get
married, she was up for the day shift manager position at work, and she
needed to complete a showcase of pieces to present to one of the city’s
premier art galleries.
Hephaestus was one of the most popular art galleries in the Santa Fe street
art district of Denver. The ten hours a week she worked there learning about
the art world more than made up for the crappy pay.
At least this internship was paid. Winston, the owner of the gallery, loved
supporting up-and-coming artists and had promised her once she got enough
presentable pieces, he’d host a show for her. He even already approved her
theme, The Human Form. An exhibit could be her big break into the art
world—if she didn’t first break her ribs trying to get out of this failed bodycasting piece.
She wondered if George Segal ever had setbacks like this.
“Is the front door unlocked?” the operator asked, his voice calm and
steady, the complete opposite to how Tamsen felt at the moment.
She turned her head to glance at her front door, swearing as the slight shift
of movement caused her skin to pull again against the hardened cast stuck to
her chest. “Shit, that hurts!”
