Haphazard Explorations & Experiments In Fiction

Her War Paint

Before the wars, before the collapse of society, women wore make-up all the time.

It’s hard to come by these days, which is one of the reasons Sheila Jennings stands out so much. She always wears hers spread across her face like war paint, accentuating the curve of her full, otherwise pale lips. Sharpening her cheekbones. She looks like a hard person without it, but with it her harsh features are elevated to another level entirely.

People once called these beauty products.

It’s anything but on her, emphasizing her own natural predatory appearance.

“And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
~William Shakespeare
