It wasn’t until the booming deep voice yelled from the car window. “God damn!” He exclaimed, his arm hanging out of his car, eyes fixated on her figure, “I need to start going to church!” He then gave an approving nod and drove away. She rushed inside, face red, hands shaking. That stranger may have been blessed by the sight of her body, but she was temporarily cursed.
