Excerpt from Melancholy Baby by Robert B. Parker
My ex-husband was getting married to a woman I wanted to kill. I didn't actually know her, and killing her would only make matters worse. But I got as much pleasure out of the idea as I could before I had to let go of it.
He didn't take the coward's way out and simply send me an invitation. He came to see me.
"She better be nice to Rosie," I said.
"I wouldn't let anyone not be nice to Rosie," Richie said. "Do you think I love Rosie less than you do?"
I didn't say anything for a bit, then, finally, I said, "No."
"Thank you," Richie said.
"And, obviously, stupid question, you love this woman."
"Yes," Richie said.
It got out before I could shut it off.
"More than you love me?" I said.
He didn't say anything for a bit, then, finally, he said, "No."
"This raises a question," I said.
"It is, I've found, possible to love more than one person," Richie said. "I love you, and I love her. She's willing to marry me."
"And you want to be married," I said.
"And I don't."
"It has nothing to do with not loving you," I said.
"I just can't be married, Richie."
