As a human, Clara had been a bit of a billboard. With those steel-grey eyes, elfin features, and straight brown hair, people took notice of her. God had been generous, she had the body of a dancer, but with a larger bust. I had the dexterity of a dancer, but my girls could lead to severe neck strain

During the Roaring Twenties, men were drawn to her, and she loved how they viewed courtship as they would a battle. In the end, Clara always won out. Sometimes the encounter would leave them scarred, but all that mattered to her was the thrill of victory. A shame they come broken out of the box these days
