The flood of expectations hit her. She is aware that they are unrealistic, unrealizable. Expectations, which if she even dares to express would only lead to much acrimony and to a lot of distress. Not only would her expectations be hurled aside but she would be made to account for her intrepid behaviour. She would be made to feel small and ashamed of her bold assertions. She would be made to feel as if she should regret every bit of what she expressed. She would be admonished and made to seek forgiveness for her legitimate expectations. Her expectations crushed. Her opinions undermined. Her relationship is put to test. She will have to scurry about for some time trying to mend her relationship.
My book “Of Forbidden Attractions” is available as a paperback and as an e book on Amazon. If you read it and leave a review, it would motivate me immensely.
