WHAT DID HE SAY TO YOU?

As we ate, a man in a suit came to our table and spoke to her in a foreign language.  His voice was soft and he spoke briefly, but what he said enraged her.  She did not act enraged, but I coud see it, first in the muscles of her jaw and neck, then in her eyes.  Rage was leaping from her eyes, but she answered him with a politeness so bitter, it seemed a kind of despair.
“What did he say to you?” I asked, thinking it must have been obscene.
She literally clenched her teeth and said  “You are very beautiful”.
