Kurt felt a profound frustration. He could see the lovely back of Elke, but could not see her face to speak into her eyes. Earlier, he had seen the anterior of her for a brief instance, and he could remember her delicate breasts complete with rosesbud nipples.
Why had he been made so old? Elke would never fall in love with him.
Then, he had a horrible realization. Marionettes were only made with features that would be on display to the audience. No effort was wasted on features that would not be seen.
"Mein Gott!", he exclaimed to himself. "Not only have they made my Elke a chorus girl. They have made her a showgirl as well!"
A tear rolled down his varnished cheek.
