Eve Rabiabout this book: "I scrambled up from the bed and walked over to a mirror where I eyed my face, red from his slap.
I picked up some concealer and dotted it over the redness. Didn't work. His imprint on my cheek showed through the concealer.
I picked up some green concealer – that worked – my redness disappeared. That was the first time I learned that green concealer covers redness better than yellow or beige concealer.
Over the years I used a lot of green concealer.
Luckily, my hair was in a bob, deep mahogany and fell in a sharp point two centimeters below my ears and covered most of my face. (As instructed by Tom, who wanted me to wear my hair exactly that way.)
I decided that if for any reason, someone enquired about the marks on my face, say the concealer faded or something, I would simply say that I had an allergy –a new facial that didn't quite agree with me. (Over the years, my friends were surprised at how many facials didn't agree with me.)
Still dazed, I adjusted my clothing, darkened my lipstick, put on the chunky gold necklace and waddled downstairs. As instructed.
When I reached the last stair of the spiral staircase of our $1.6 million dollar home, I plastered a smile on my disappointed lips and greeted our guests.
I ignored him and went on to welcome our guest.
After our last guest arrived, he rattled a knife on a crystal goblet. "Ladies and gentleman, it is now time for me to give my beautiful wife her anniversary gift."
With a fake smile plastered on my lips, I watched him in silence.
He led us all outside, where I gasped at the sight of a silver BMW X60i E75 in our driveway with a huge red bow on it. I knew that it cost more than a hundred and fifty thousand dollars, as I had gone car shopping with him weeks ago.
All eyes were on me, most of them filled with envy.
If only they knew."
