Another day working at the spa has Zoey Jacinth on edge. Having dealt with a persistently and perversely slutty roommate, she doesn’t look forward to dealing with withered customers looking to regain their youth through magic creams. After blowing her top at a creepy old woman, Zoey might find that her own top is not long for this world and there is something to be said about the addictive magic in certain creamy offerings.
Zoey Jacinthe works a job where sometimes the customers can really get to her, though this Halloween she’s about to meet a customer who can really change her attitude.
She’s always been a girl who worked hard to maintain an image, whether that be the image of good student fighting the constant annoyances of her slutty roommate Dana, or whether it be her personal image, a vibrant healthy young woman. One thing is sure, Zoey never needs the services of the spa she works at.
She’s barraged day in and day out with women fighting a desperate battle to look younger, to attract attention, tanning, applying creams, lotions, doing everything possible to look their best. They come in expecting miracles, but on the day Zoey finally loses her cool in front of a potential new customer, the miracles might just be coming for Zoey.
Frustrations fume and anger explodes in a brief moment of rage where Zoey tells it like it is to the rather unattractive and near haggard old woman in black who stops in to see what the spa offers. Even as she is saying what she does, Zoey knows this can only get worse. Oddly enough the woman has a very pleasant response, a much more contained one than she ever would have expected.
No violence, no shouting, only a poke of a finger and some strangely poetic words and the woman walks away. Of course this is only the start to Zoey’s workday and immediately she finds herself changing, the spa never having offered body altering enhancements like she soon receives.
One thing is certain. Before this Halloween, Zoey will be experiencing much more of the services the spa can offer, particularly when male customers are involved. She’ll find that maybe there’s something to rubbing creams and lotions into her skin, though preferably the all natural kinds a man is willing to provide when a curvy girl like her asks nicely.
Halloween with the Kreme 2013 continues with A Lesson in Manners.
