[She] loosened one side of the blanket and bared her breast. "You got to," she said. She squirmed closer and pulled his head close. "There!" she said. "There." Her hand moved behind his head and supported it. Her fingers moved gently to his hair. She looked up and across the barn, and her lips came together and smiled mysteriously." Who is she?
