Viewing the local antiquities

The arithmetic. 

Lan was 88 pounds and 4'8". "Asian Pearl" was her size. She wore a white silk Teddy like the one I gave Lan, and that made me laugh.

"Why do you laugh?"

We negotiate price. She takes out a pencil and a notebook with a black marbled cover from the bedside table's drawer, and writes down the money, the date, and the time. I'm about twenty pages in, and there are twenty smeared lead lines per page. Double column.

When I go to wash up after the first service, I find the bathroom floor covered with damp crumpled towels.

When I come back to the bed, she asks me to go, and says she'll refund the balance.

I agree, and she does.

Later, I realized she'd taken my Swatch: A "Timeless Nice Popsies" cereal box parody in colorful red, blue, and yellow. She must have wanted it badly, to refund the second service.
