Security rushing onto the stage, standing between Sonia and her tormentors, skinny family members disgusted with her appearance and laziness.
Sonia reliving her bravery, assertiveness finally expressing deep held thoughts and emotions. Given the space and security to speak.

She was still beautiful, slender, with abundant blonde wavy hair, sparkling blue eyes. She wondered who her family were shouting at.
