Happy wife or confused adulteress, after getting through the first several paragraphs.

Janus Happy wife or confused adulteress, after getting through the first several paragraphs, I was sure I was reading a story about a woman who had some type of communication problem with her husband that was so severe it was turning her mad, hence the staying up late at night just staring at the bowl in the dim light of the night.
