For one day in June, she possessed all the world's sickness. . . at 22, Ruby found a magic lamp, and rubbed it. the genie that came out saw her and all her power - and he told her what he wished for. . . at 27, Ruby Bruised completed the life-long construction of a metal skin, borne from an early desire to protect an aching heart. On its debut wearing, her boyfriend dumped her. By the following morning, her cheeks had rusted. . . at 30, Ruby Bruised lost her reflection.
