So I Taught Her

She was too young, and too beautiful, to know how to seduce someone. For her, all she had to do was to want it, and it would be hers.

But I know what it is to be rejected. I understand what flatters, what entices, I know how to move and where to put my eyes and how to move your hands. I’m old enough and ugly enough to know the secrets of getting someone to love you.
