I read this circumstance as even worse than you did.

She might have thought you were pregnant and that you were considering an abortion based on the book you were reading. She might have felt compelled to try and talk you out of it to save the potential baby and your soul.

My sincere apologies for contributing that thought to the mix! I have a darkish mind that unbidden likes to ferret out the worst case scenarios.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
