Quote #10

She watched this smile come, awkward as if he were smiling from inside a mask. His whole face was a mask, she thought wildly, tanned down to his throat but then running out as if he had plastered makeup on his face but had forgotten about his throat. (110)

The verb "come" in this quote has a creepy echo with its previous use in a sexual context.
