Charis wonders for twenty years if Billy is alive or dead. Zenia does make a success of Roz's business, but she also seduces Roz's husband and leads to his suicide. He tried to flee by jumping out the window, but the sentries were standing below. The adaptation altered the plotline, choosing not to show Roz, Tony and Charis' childhood flashbacks and adding several new characters. Some count their chickens before they're hatched.

You are a woman with a man inside watching a woman. Some yell. The grandmother keeps on walking; her eyes are light blue, and her cheek comes against Karen's, cool grains of dry rice. One day, Zenia ran off with all the money West and her had in their joined account. You are in a murderer's house. Finally I went down into the cellar, and there sat a very old woman, shaking her head.

She reveals his true nature to a crowd at a local Inn, via a "story of a dream". Tony, Roz and Charis all attended her funeral five years prior, and yet when they see Zenia walk into the restaurant where they are having lunch, none of them is surprised. It was totally quiet. She believes you can refuse to participate in certain emotions. But the one we are talking about is surely going to be one of the best books for you. After they had murdered the old woman, they began to pull all the rings off her fingers, one after the other, but the ring on her ring finger wouldn't come off, so one of them picked up an ax and chopped away at it until it flew into the air, and it came down behind the barrel right into my lap, and here I have the finger!
