The Queen's Status

UPDKE-88HDES

Which description BEST demonstrates the "Queen's" position in the group?

A

"Walking into the A & P with your straps down, I suppose it's the only kind of face you can have."

B

"She had on a kind of dirty-pink -- beige maybe, I don't know -- bathing suit with a little nubble all over it..."

C

"With the straps pushed off, there was nothing between the top of the suit and the top of her head except just her..."

D

“She came down a little hard on her heels… she was showing them how to do it, walk slow and hold yourself straight.”

E

"Queenie blushes, though maybe it's just a brush of sunburn I was noticing for the first time, now that she was so close. "
