From Salman Rushdie:

May 19, 2016

Vina grows tense, resists the moving of the ring. No, she will not marry him. She refuses, turns him down flat, doesn’t even need time to think about it. But she does not resist the ring, she accepts it, can’t stop looking at it. … “Why not?” Ormus’s howl is piteous, even a little pathetic. … “You are the only man I will ever love,” she promises Ormus. “But do you seriously suppose you’re also the only guy I will ever fuck?”
