Chapter 74 Gold, Incense, and Myrrh
- For the next few
- days I imagined myself on suicide watch. The sycophantic maids were constantly asking if I was too hot, too cold, if I needed anything, what did I want to eat today? Yunai started spending more time in the house again and he was smotheringly attentive and uncharacteristically tender with me, kissing my forehead and nose like a baby and telling me that whatever I wanted, I had it.
- He booked me a whole day at the spa and I was oiled and massaged and pampered, my hair washed and trimmed, my nails done. We went to the mall and the saleswomen once again presented their new wares like the three kings laying out gold, incense and myrrh, and after all that we went to the pet shop and I picked out a pug just because they were so flat-nosed and endearingly ugly.
