Star Magnolia: Chapter 3

“She pulls at the gate again, as if this will help somehow. A flame of white heat blooms behind her eyes and suddenly she is pushing through the gate, a parasol in one hand, a rough gentleman’s hand in the other.

The thick scents of jasmine, gardenia and magnolia snake around her ankles, crawling up her skirts, pushing into her neck.”
