Would never touch him again

The who­le Sce­ne:

I knew Frank hadn’t been celi­ba­te sin­ce my disap­pearan­ce. In his late forties, he was still lean and mus­cu­lar, dark and sleek, a very hand­so­me man. Women clus­te­red about him at cock­tail par­ties like bees round a honey­pot, emit­ting small hums of sexu­al exci­te­ment.
The­re had been one girl with brown hair whom I had noti­ced par­ti­cu­lar­ly at the depart­ment­al par­ty; she stood in the cor­ner and sta­red at Frank mourn­f­ul­ly over her drink. Later she beca­me tear­ful­ly and inco­her­ent­ly drunk, and was escor­ted home by two fema­le fri­ends, who took turns cas­ting evil looks at Frank and at me, stan­ding by his side, silent­ly bul­ging in my flowe­r­ed mater­ni­ty dress.
He’d been discreet, though. He was always home at night, and took pains not to have lip­s­tick on his col­lar. So, now he meant to come home all the way. I sup­po­sed he had some right to expect it; was that not a wife­ly duty, and I once more his wife?
The­re was only one small pro­blem. It wasn’t Frank I reached for, deep in the night, waking out of sleep. It wasn’t his smooth, lithe body that wal­ked my dreams and rou­sed me, so that I came awa­ke moist and gas­ping, my heart poun­ding from the half-remem­be­red touch. But I would never touch that man again.“Jamie,” I whis­pe­red, “Oh, Jamie.” My tears spark­led in the morning light, adorning Brianna’s soft red fuzz like scat­te­red pearls and dia­monds.

    Visu­al image accom­pany­ing the wor­ds make the sce­ne more heart-wren­ching. I dread being able to watch the ending of DIA in Sea­son 2 next year. I know it’s going to tear out my heart and stomp on it real­ly hard. Then I ima­gi­ne, if we’re lucky, we have to wait out Drought­lan­der III befo­re we can con­ti­nue to watch Voya­ger. OL is going to be the death of me.
