The Importance of Being Belinda by Patsy Middleton

Slim, Blond, long, long legs Belinda loved herself.


She wanted to be a model and applied for an interview.


Low cut short dress, four-inch heels, perfect makeup, she teetered towards the Jane, the interviewer.


"What’s your experience?"


"None yet."


"Next"


"But I’m Belinda give me a chance."


"Occupation?"


"Dress shop assistant"


"Next"


"But I’ll be Important, I’m Belinda!"


"You’re not what we’re looking for."


Years pass.


At a fashion show Jane sat below the catwalk watching Belinda modelling the highlight of the show.


The now important Belinda looked down at her and gave Jane the finger.
