She was still rinsing off her hair in the shower when her husband told her he was leaving. What, honey? she called, thinking he wanted her to pick up milk on the way home. He came into the bathroom and repeated the statement. She turned off the water and emerged, wrapping herself in a towel. What are you talking about? she asked, dripping on the bath mat.

Im leaving. Its over. Im sorry, he said, edging toward the door.As the door closed behind him, she found herself rerunning the scene in her mind. With clothes on.
