Skylark in Tawny Mist BY Julie Ann Wenglinski
Before surgery, a rabbity young man in a white jacket hurried by and put his hand down the front of my dress, then bustled away. On my gurney to the OR, a chatty nurse pushed me through the doors and said I was brave and would be pretty again but I felt blank as a slip of paper.
