Eileen could see herself putting down roots in this quiet corner of America with Calley as her ticket - Eileen would be Calley’s Mustang Sally and it was he that had to put his flat feet on the ground.
Calley reckoned he’d be relatively safe from arrest if he stuck to his story so he confided in no one, including Eileen.
There were other compensations: mortified by his trauma Eileen gave special womanly support beyond the normal to divert his mind from the terrible event. Calley soaked it up not believing his luck at this unexpected upside in his tricky situation.
