The Ugly One

Some anthropologists once did a comprehensive survey of what human cultures considered beautiful. There was one consistent: trait-symmetry. Every human culture in existence said that the person with symmetric physical features was the beautiful one. I’m the ugly one, reduced to going to brothels for sex.

At least that’s what I thought until I met a beautiful courtesan who offered me a deal. Help her with her son, and she’d help me learn to be with women. Could it make me more attractive? Could it lead to love?
