"Um, so, I was kind of wondering," Bunny asked.  "How did you wind up hooking up with your mentor, anyway?  I don't think I ever got the real story..."

"I'll tell you what I can and what I feel comfortable telling," Maria said. "I had saved the life of a pompous and rich American in Brazil. He offered to help my brother and me out and take us with him to America. He did not do all that he had promised, and put me to work as a maid for him. This was some sort of bragging rights for him, telling his right friends that he had employed the poor girl who had saved him. My mentor heard about this and offered me something better."

Bunny kept holding her.

"It's not fair," she said.  "I'm sorry.  I can't do anything to help with that..."

"All right," said Bunny, reluctantly letting go of Maria.  "...Let me know if there's anything I can do, though, OK?"
