Gertrude sits down, clasps a hand to her chest. It has suddenly hit her. She will be a mother. A mother of a baby which her husband has made with – no, she mustn’t think of that. The child will be hers. No one will know. She looks at her husband. He, too, looks pleased. There is so much she wants to ask him. Did he enjoy sleeping with the cleaning girl? She and Julian hardly ever – haven’t – did he enjoy it? Did he? She hopes he didn’t. She prays he didn’t. She wants to ask him. Doesn’t. Dreads the answer.
It makes him feel like a parasite, someone who doesn’t live his own life but vicariously. One who preys on others. He had meant to be his own man but he feels, on days like these, like the mere shadow of the man he had hoped to be. He has not settled on which gender to love, which way to turn. Maybe this biography is a waste of time. Maybe he is a waste of space. A void. An inconvenience. And because Raphaella is a fish tonight, she is underwater. Her eyes shine and glaze as currents pass over them but she can still see.
But he has been in touch again. Wants to meet.
