The young bride's tears flow freely, but provide her no solace, as they are washed away by the cool spray. Certainly her actions were contrary to their prenuptial vows. Nonetheless, her new husband should not have turned away. She sobs. She could accept his remonstrating, yelling, throwing something or even breaking something, but never just turning away. He is supposed to love her!
She is startled by the draft as the shower curtain parts. She is equally thrilled as he steps into the shower. He does not say word, but wraps his arms around her just below her breasts. She slides backwards deeper into his embrace. He holds her until her sobs subside. She starts to apologize, but is silenced by a single finger quickly placed over her lips.
He drops his finger below her chin, and tilts her face back. He bends forward, squinting against the spray, and gives her a tender kiss. Then he gently takes her hands and places them on flat against the front wall of the stall. He pushes her head forward just past the spray, and with his foot spreads her legs to the sides of the tub.
He taps the back of her right thigh. She inhales sharply as she recognizes the cool, hard back of the wooden bath brush with its fifteen degree bend. Before she can turn to question him, there is an explosion in the small stall. Her head snaps up. But as she opens her mouth to let out a scream of surprise, she receives a mouthful of water. As she coughs, a second blast fills the tight enclosure.
She finds her voice, and rewards the third reverberating Smack with a loud and plaintive, "OW!" However, her hands remain flush against the wall. The cool waters amplify each successive Crack, but fail to extinguish the growing flames. Her tears flow once again, but this time provide her with comfort and security, and the firm resolve to replace the brush with a nice loofa.
