Signs of Wear


                  Her face was the face of a girl of twenty-five already showing signs of wear. Little lines cossed the corners of her big ripe mouth. Fainter lines were beginning to make nets around her thick-lashed eyes. They were large eyes, blue and a bit blood-shot.

Dashiell Hammett
Red Harvest
