Story Card Edit
"Look at the time!" Cedric Beston (who was one of the world's most respected photographers) snapped his pocket watch shut. "Here I am photographing a most promising model and time just slipped by."
Gene, still new to New York and to modeling, blushed prettily at Mr Beston's offhand compliment.
"I'm supposed to photographer Elsie Paxwell's cocktail soirée tonight for Deluxe magazine," he continued, "but I'm afraid your glow has thoroughly bewitched me--I really must be off immediately, my dear."
"Of course--thank you so much for your patience today, Mr Beston. I've learned so much." Gene started to go, but Beston's voice stopped her.
"Why don't you join me tonight, Miss Marshall? It would be good experience for you."
Gene's eyes lit up, but then her joy faded. She really didn't have anything appropriate to wear to such a gathering.
"I'm afraid I can't, sir. I, um, have other plans."
But Beston saw through her bravado. "Nonsense--you're coming along," he insisted, "and please wear the ensemble you're modeling now. I assure it will be love at first sight at the soirée--for both the outfit AND you!"
And for the second time that afternoon, Gene blushed.
