"Millicent did not apologize. She knew she was simply keeping to her plan of deceiving or distracting him whenever the subject came up. She was not yet ready to bear children and she wanted to be sure that when she did, they would have the financial wherewithal to support a growing family. Edward was only two weeks into his employment with the Railway Mail Service, not enough time for any tenure to accrue. Since Edward was only going to be there for the weekend before heading out on another mail run, she knew that she could keep up the deception for a short two days."
