“Do you believe in love, Betty?” asks Dora, filling her lips with crimson so bright it would be vulgar anywhere but here. She is new, has only been at the cabaret a few weeks. All new ones are like that, filled with romantic delusions they read about in silly books for sillier girls.

“No,” I say. I know better. The first time a visitor breaks the polite ruse, treating you not like a star to be cherished but a whore to be had, you learn that lesson.

“Then what do you believe in?”

“What all women should believe in. Diamonds.”
