It was strangely difficult for Heather, someone rarely at a loss for words, to deal with a man who wouldn’t respond. But, she was forced to realise, this was her confession and it seemed that no amount of throwing out questions, her tried and tested form of defence, was going to work this time. She’d now committed herself to a confession, and however uncomfortable that might be, she would have to continue, to try to explain.
John wasn’t going to make it easy for her. It seemed he wasn’t going to do anything but listen. Why isn’t he getting angry?
