Four weeks. Four weeks of silence. Of living in the same house as a Muse that wouldn’t look Aubrey in the eye. Of walking into a room, and having the Muse walk out, to go into a different part of the house and do things very loudly, as if those angry movements would somehow convey to Aubrey what she had done wrong, and why the Muse was mad at her. Why had the Muse come home, if she was still angry? If she was going to engage in actively ignoring Aubrey? And why was she wearing that ridiculous leather jacket?
