It was a bad omen. First, the day of Mi-Cha’s surgery, her ride never showed, which meant walking through the city streets and crossing over the chilly town square and pass, reluctantly, by that new sculpture. Not only was its form hideous, but worse, Mi-Cha sensed her entire being pulled into the truth of her own despair.
Her youthful beauty was quickly fading.
Despite serious warnings, Mi-Cha wanted liberation from both aging and her Asian features. Unfortunately, Mi-Cha and several other women received serious deformity after their blepharoplasty, or double eyelid surgery and Botox treatments.
The con artist cleverly eluded arrest.
