“Hey, sweetheart, how’d you like to make some money?” A man with a toothy grin and long hair leaned into Alex’s face. “It’s easy work. Men will pay you good money.”
“No, I have enough money.” Alex backed away from his bad breath. She raised her hand and turned away, staring at the back of the head of the man in front of her in line.
“Come on, love!” The man stroked Alex’s hair. “I’ll treat you real nice. I’ll get you a new dress instead of these rags.” He leaned forward and reached for her face. “You’ll clean up nicely. Black hair, blue eyes. Looks good. You’re a little tall, but you’ll be lying down most of the time.” He laughed.
“Get away from me!” Alex swatted his arm away.
