Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:
She looked in the mirror and wiped the tears away, being as careful as possible with her makeup. She spent hours on this makeup and she was damned sure that she wasn’t going to redo any part of it due to some words spoken by a client. Some words. Some innocent simple words that tore through the wall that she put up between her and the world. Simple words that normally someone would be anxious to hear. Words that made her wish she was fifteen again so that she could hear them when it mattered most. “I want to help.”
