It was just a nickname, to make fun. I was a gangly youth, tall and bony, with huge hands and feet that took me years to get used to. My eyes - too wide-set, my chin too pronounced. And I was skinny, shaped like a tall limp rectangle without any curves. But over time I grew into my awkward features, and when I developed into a young woman, suddenly my childhood name was strangely fitting:

Beauty.

This is set in a more modern time, I presume. Modern day setting or not, it's an awesome read so far!
