The food, spices, and incense whirled around her. It gave Charmaine some comfort. And little by little, she pulled her handkerchief away from her nose and tucked it into the suit’s breast pocket.
The men who were not bartering stopped and greeted her with an odd stare. Women draped in bright full-length clothing murmured behind their hands.
The activity pulled her in so many different directions that she could not think straight. She turned to speak to her husband but found him in a much-contrasted demeanor from his usual self. Since receiving the telegram from his superior, Ali’s behavior had altered. He now appeared guarded.
To the people around her, she must have seemed as if she were a foreign creature. Yet Ali still walked alongside her as any dutiful gentleman would. On the other hand, Charmaine saw him in another light. Stern, straight-laced—the conduct typical of a military officer. So different, so unlike the man she had grown to love over the last year. An uneasy feeling sprouted in the pit of her stomach. Now she was the stranger in a strange land.
