Worthless - Prt 01

They called her Kat, a nicknamed she'd picked up early on most likely because none of the regulars at the club were sober enough to care or more simply because they where to high on something else to recall more than the first part of her name for those first few times she'd even bothered to offer it out.

Most only knew her as the token Goth girl who tended the bar at 'The Vogue' Fridays and Saturdays. When the club notoriously found itself short handed during the weekends when the live bands played and the shit hole was filled to overflowing with both the regulars and what Eddie called the flavor of the week crowd who only came to the club to see the popular bands when they played a gig there.

She was pretty enough under all the hair and make-up with perhaps a little more on the hips and a little less up top but Eddie wouldn't have hired her if she hadn't made the grade.

When her mother was in a really obsessive mood she'd put assure all pretext of sanity and launch into assorted threats, mindless rants, and accusations of her daughter commuting the most perverse or amoral acts. Which often left Kat to wonder about her mother's sanity.

Kat shrugged as she retouched the Blackrose lipstick she wore pouting her lips briefly before answering. " No, I don't think I was his type."

Gloria frowned and shrugged." He seemed like a nice guy."

Kat's reflection smirked shaking her head. " Weren't you the one that told me that they're all nice guys when they're trying to get into your pants. "

Gloria nodded. " Did I say that ? "
