Prison of the Mind – 2 (b)

Herbert had begun to email  his first Ex-Wife ten years ago.  

His first missive was two sentences.   He didn’t know if she would answer so he didn’t want to put himself into a weak position.

His ex-wife  responded with two sentences.  

His reply was one sentence.  

She responded with a paragraph concerning someone he used to know.

He wanted to answer, wanted to question, but!  Herbert had decided before he made the first keystroke that he would only make 2 short emails a month. 

He could not respond.

His ex-wife wrote again,  enlarging on the topic, but bound by his rules;  Herbert could not answer.
