The young receptionist lifted her head from her computer. “You’re welcome Ma. Is this your first time of being here?”

She was a dark young girl with with a plump body. She held her thick natural hair up in a bun and her face was devoid of makeup. Claura thought she needed some foundation, that would have covered some of those pimples she had on.
