I didn’t even have time to wonder where Bruna was going with this line of thought, as she continued without a pause, almost as though following a script.
“Our love affair is over. I’ve decided to stay in Brazil,” she said. “I’m keeping Sean here with me.”
Whooom! It was as though the earth had suddenly dropped out from under me, and I was hanging in midair. “What? What! What are you talking about, Bruna?” I could not believe what I was hearing. Our love affair? What about our marriage? The tone of voice with which she said those words to me was one I had never before heard from her. She sounded cold, calculating, and unemotional — not at all like the upbeat, vivacious, passionate woman to whom I was married.
