LABOR DAY by Joyce Maynard
“Then again, he said, it’s an open question, which person is the captor here, which is the captive.
“He bent his head close to her ear and brushed her hair away, as if to speak directly into her brain. Maybe he thought I wouldn’t hear, or maybe he was just beyond caring.
“I am your prisoner, Adele, was what he said to her.”
