I deftly removed the wedding band from my finger and slipped it into my pocket. I wondered if she was doing the same. No. She was a woman without guile. A wedding ring wouldn't have mattered.

That night, we went to my hotel room and made love. In the morning, as we parted, she said, “Until next time.” I didn't ask if there would be a next time. I knew she would avoid the question.
