Dahlia Never Dies


        A pretty social girl, Short dated often but seldom seriously. She was not known as a drinker, despite the El Paseo incident, and worked regularly as a theatre usher, cashier and waitress.
                                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       Her final year morphed toward parasitic behaviour. She mooched meals, rides, housing and money. She had excellent radar for picking nice people who would be sympathetic to the sad story about her fiance's death.
