If you buy into the whole astrology thing, you know that Cancers are ruled by their emotions. This was true in Liza’s case. Not only that, it usually took her a while to identify her feelings about something, so she was constantly caught off guard by her own reactions.
When Liza read Bruce’s words, she felt like she might burst into flames and pass out. She didn’t, but neither did she respond in an appropriate amount of time. Then she pulled a Bruce, sneaking a glance at him out of the corner of her eye. He was staring at the notepad, working his tongue around the inside of his cheek. She couldn’t think of anything to say. Liza tore the page from the notepad and walked out of the room.
