I watched the red carpet like a hawk, sparing a glance at the security
guard that looked way too star-struck for someone who was supposed to
keep the peons in line away from famous, rich people. I waited patiently for
him to look away long enough for me to slip past the barrier. I was dressed
to the nines. Shawna had made me something that looked like it belonged in
a high-end boutique. It made me look like I should be on the red carpet. I

even if I looked like I should be here, it didn’t keep that little voice in the
back of my head from whispering doubts.
I went into the first open stall and grabbed a wad of toilet paper so I could
dab at my pits. I turned toward a mirror to make sure the expensive chiffon
Shawna had used on it wasn’t damp. I swore to her I would have this dress
impeccable once I gave it back to her so there’d be little cleaning necessary,
and she could easily list it as a red-carpet dress.
The blue bust hugged my torso tightly. Even with the corset back, it was
