Regina is standing at a podium feeling very put-together. she is wearing a green dress and she is smiling because her teeth are coated in vaseline. regina is smiling behind a podium and she looks very happy and some of the people watching are smiling because they are in love with her and the rest are not smiling because they make less money when regina looks happy. the people do not know that behind the podium regina is picking at a round scab on her wrist. the people do not know that on regina's wrist a scab has come loose and now there is blood on her green dress. regina opens her mouth to speak and a mockeroserous comes out. the people applaud regina's brilliant oration and take many flashy photographs of the spectacle.
