Now, she wonders if she'll ever get this chance again. 2. "It tastes like licorice...", "That's the way with everything..." - They are both speaking metaphorically - he's blaming the baby for standing in the way of their love affair; she's blaming him because he can't see that she wants him to see her for more than a "fine time" and be a father to her child and a husband to her.

An example of Hemmingway writing positively is when he writes about the reaction of Marjorie in lines 96 - 106. Instead of her being angry, upset, and very emotional at having found out that Nick wants to end the relationship
I think Nick is worries but relieved that she has asked him this. Worried because he does not want to hurt her feelings because I feel he still cares for her- he must do because from what the author is telling us, they have been in a relationship for over 10 years. Even though they are breaking up, he must still feel something for her because they have spent a lot of time together. I think Nick feels relieved that she is asking 'What's the matter Nick?'
