Having reconciled their differences, May agrees to June's suggestion that they live together. From all appearances, May seems to have forgotten, or is at least willing to overlook, that June married her one true love. As May settles into the village however, she forms a close attachment to June's friend John Dyson and soon the two are lovers. As June realizes that her own relationship with John will come to an end, she becomes unhappier in their living arrangement and actually asks May to move out. While May seems to take it all quite calmly, it is only because everything is going just according to plan. Written by garykmcd
