Robert and Brenda have been separated for a couple of years leaving Robert living a lonely single life with their dog Rambone. The initial disagreement between Robert and Brenda finished with an exchange of vitriolic letters which Robert reads and re-reads with Rambone as his confidant. Robert's power comes from the fact that Brenda's final letter remains unopened. He feels that in leaving it unread for two years, he has denied her the opportunity for final abuse. On the second anniversary of their separation, Robert feels psychologically strong enough to open and read the final letter.
