While the orchestra is warming up, Germaine LeFebvre strolls into the Saenger Theatre like she’s Aphrodite, some goddess of beauty, her latest lover in tow. I feel that familiar stab in my heart. Former Miss University of New Orleans, former Miss Louisiana, first runner up to Miss U.S.A., Germaine is also the former occupant of my bed.
Her face is striking to behold, her lips a fiery crimson, her long red hair hanging in curls. Her form-fitting, blue velvet gown, with a generous slit up the front, reveals her sleek legs as she walks languidly, like a cat. She acts as if she doesn’t notice the people staring at her, but I know her. She notices.
