Joe Smith seemed rescuer and liberator to his new, young wife, Arden. He spirited her not only away from an ignoring father and a drunken mother, but from her confusing adolescent world as well. And he brought her to the wonderful bedroom-world of the married woman. So Arden played at being grown up while desperately needing her thirty-five year old husband to take care of her, protect her, father her.
The need became so desperate that she grew willing to do anything to secure her marriage.
