    Summary

    After filming the commercials, Cherry dyes her hair blonde. She misses her signature red hair, but blonde maintains the glamor without sacrificing the camouflage. There are thousands of pretty blonde actresses in Los Angeles, all of them with faces that seem familiar. She practices making up her face on her own, pretty without the polish of an expert. She stocks the closet of her second apartment with secondhand furniture and clubbing outfits cheap enough to give her the scent of desperation.

    Then, Cherry goes out hunting.

    Summary

    Of course, if you come back, I shall welcome you with open arms. Ladies do not have to worry so much about being found out taking one another as lovers. Remember Miss Kerry’s costume party where you tugged me into the servants’ quarters and kissed me for hours? Or all those nights curled up in the cool rooms of my country home, our dresses and skirts and underthings all tangled together among the sheets? It shall not be a problem with my husband-to-be, I assure you. It will be as if nothing has changed.
