The Short Form

“Betty and Veronica”

Luke Geddes


Veronica, foot resting on the edge of the bathtub, drawing a razor along her calf, although her legs are as bare and smooth as the porcelain tub. Silently she repeats Betty's name as she slides the blade up her leg and lets it sink slowly into her thigh.

We read it in I Am a Magical Teenage Princess.
