|I hate Mary Fisher

Dear Lady Catherine,
Mary Fisher lives in a High Tower, on the edge of the sea: she writes a great deal about the nature of love. She tells lies.
Mary Fisher is accustomed to love. There has always been a man around to love her, sometimes quite desperately. She is a writer of romantic fiction. She tells lies to herself and the rest of the world.
My husband is Bobbo. He is honest with me. He loves Mary Fisher. I tried to earn his love. I have looked in the mirror, and recited the Litany of the Good Wife, but today it doesn't soothe: today it incenses. I look inside myself: I find hate, yes: hate for Mary Fisher, hot, strong and sweet: but not a scrap of love, not the faintest, wriggling tendril. I have fallen out of love with Bobbo.
I want revenge. I want power. I want money. I want to be loved and not love in return.
Bobbo says he sees me at last as I really am. A third-rate person. A bad mother, a worse wife, and a dreadful cook. He doesn't think I am a woman at all. He thinks I am a she-devil!
Bobbo wants to marry Mary Fisher.
