Unable to cope with his distance any longer, Rosemarie takes a chance during a visit to an alien world and purchases an aphrodisiac makeup. Touted as being nothing more than snake oil, Rosemarie is delighted when Aurelius truly notices her and finally takes an interest. Content at first that she’s with the man she’s always loved, Rosemarie comes to doubt whether his love, born from a bottle, is true love at all. As her guilt eats away at her, the tension in the Galaxy continues to rise.
Eventually, Rosemarie comes to a decision… Risk the love of her soulmate and tell him the truth… Or live day to day with someone, whose vision of her is filtered solely through rose-colored glasses.
