From: Anastasia Steele Subject: Fine Morning Date: May 30 2011 19:05 To: Christian Grey Dear Sir, The morning was exemplary for me, too, in spite of you weirding out on me after the impeccable desk sex. Don’t think I didn’t notice. Thank you for breakfast. Or thank Mrs. Jones. I’d like to ask you questions about her—without you weirding out on me again. Ana

Weirding? What on earth does she mean by that? Is she saying I’m weird? Well, I am, I suppose. Maybe. Perhaps she’s realized how surprised I was when she jumped me—and no one’s done that for a long time. “Impeccable”… I’ll take that.

From: Christian Grey Subject: Publishing and You? Date: May 30 2011 19:10 To: Anastasia Steele Anastasia, “Weirding” is not a verb and should not be used by anyone who wants to go into publishing.

Impeccable—compared to the other times we have…what’s your word…oh yes…fucked. Actually, the fucking has been pretty impeccable, period, in my humble opinion—but then, as you know, I have very limited experience. Is Mrs. Jones an ex-sub of yours?
