This was my reward for being a pushover.” From this section of the short story the reader gets the impression that the woman is unconfident, miserable and dissatisfied with her current lifestyle. She has been pushed around her entire life, and this series of random events caused by her timidness has finally lead to meeting an famous actor called Roy Spivey. Shortly after meeting each other, the woman and Roy Spivey immediately form some sort of relationship and begins to exchange intimate information about
