"I must not notice my thoughts, my desires, my obligation to and need for others," she scolded herself, "I must keep myself as pure as Terry Southern's Candy in the rain in pleasure pinned between the fallen statue and her decrepit father."

She wanted something then, something she wasn't supposed to desire, but she did, and she did again right there in the bus seat so strongly that she held her breath.
