    As Bob observed just before he left Karen and Rachel alone, Rachel had not been this happy in a long, long time. Rachel was finally realizing that her life did not have to end with her husband’s. In the past 48 hours, Rachel had discovered that she could not only feel attractive, but that she could even look attractive to others. She sighed as she remembered Bob’s and Karen’s admiring glances earlier in the evening. She certainly could not believe how erotic she looked in the photos now on Karen’s laptop. Now that she was alone with Karen, Rachel desperately wanted to explore a sexual relationship with another woman, particularly her best friend who had done so much to finally wake Rachel from her ten-year slumber. One half of Rachel’s brain was focusing on the sensual possibilities for the remainder of the evening. The other half, however, was telling Rachel that would be wrong … because Karen, her best friend, was sobbing uncontrollably beside her on the sofa. “Don’t cry, Karen,” Rachel said to her friend, squeezing her hand and breaking the silence that existed since Bob left. “There’s nothing wrong.” “Bullshit!” Karen replied firmly despite her tears. “I have totally fucked up my marriage.

But, seeing Karen in such a state of despair, Rachel decided to wait to see if Karen could cry herself dry before she attempted to reason with her. After about five minutes, Karen was slowly getting herself back together. Breaking the silence, Karen asked Rachel, “Do you honestly think Bob hates me?” “Of course not, you silly woman,” Rachel said softly and reassuringly. “You and Bob have one of the best marriages that Stephen and I had ever seen. Stephen and I used to argue a lot, and I am embarrassed to say that I was tempted to sleep around from time to time after our arguments. That’s one reason I was so miserable after he died … I felt so guilty for even thinking about cheating on him. “You and Bob have something uniquely special,” Rachel continued. “I know Bob pretty well. Nothing will ever split the two of you up, unless that’s what you want.” Karen sighed and put her head on her friend’s shoulder. “I guess you’re right,” Karen said. “I know I could not live without Bob’s love. He means everything to me; the only other person who come close, other than my son, is you.” Rachel tried to react calmly to Karen’s words. However, Rachel’s head was now spinning. “Did Karen just ...
