The Receptionist

by Oliver Cassidy

The receptionist was hired without a reference. She made a nice appearance. She called herself Courtney; we later found out her real name was Bernadette. She was always on time, always polite and well-informed, and what little makeup she wore was always perfectly applied. No one pegged her for suicide. Life went on without her.
