The narrator (and reader) learns that Ethan had fallen in love with Mattie, the cousin of his sickly wife Zeena. Zeena, jealous of Mattie, had planned to send her away, but Ethan and Mattie attempt a suicide pactsledding into a tree. Instead of death, however, both are injured. All these years later, the three are still living, unhappily, together, with Zeena looking after both invalids.
