- (Angelica stands in front of a mirror putting on make up. She hums while she applies the make up. Her presence is a happy one until she begins to put make up on her eyes. Her focus shifts, it is painful to touch her eyes. She continues to put the make up on while clearly in pain.) When Jason first met me he said that the most beautiful thing about me were my eyes. There would be days that I would catch him sitting in the kitchen just staring me in the eyes. It was quite beautiful and that was one of the first things that made me fall in love with him just the idea that a man could love me for nothing more than me being me, period no debating it, and made me feel like if there were another women in the room she could be lying dead on the floor and you would never know because his focus is on me and me alone. There's something to be said about a predator in the way (Beat) the way in which they play their game. Sometimes I feel that I brought this on myself, you know. Jason and I met on this online dating service that my sister had met her husband on and it was time my family kept telling me, it was time for me to find a husband, it was time for me to get married, it was time. So I have this thought in my mind that at twenty-seven I was so old nearly knocking on deaths door because that is how they made me feel. I went online and created what I thought was pretty interesting profile. We had pictures of my dog and then pictures of my eyes.
