Description

The protagonist, desperate for money, answers an ad for a man who wants someone to help him "relax." He claims that he wants her to massage him, but he requests that she come to his house and lie down in his bed with him. He touches her sexually and makes her uncomfortable. She accepts his payment, leaves, and never returns. This experience, in addition to the alienation she had already been feeling, causes her to go into a deep depression.
