Quandary Resolution 282
nettle, leaven, mollycoddle, affable
No more Mrs. Nice Guy, thought Brenda, her accustomed sadness leavened to ripe sorrow by the drip drip of his nettling disdain, no more kid gloves, this mollycoddling had gone on for too long, and, for what, for this, this betrayal? as she turned to him with affable eyes that barely hinted at the crashing, tumbling rift in her heart and said in a voice that sounded distant, like the voice of a stranger, "I'm sorry, John, dear, really, I am, but it's over."
