Invisible Man Chapter 19
After a lecture on women's rights, a white woman invites the narrator back to her home to discuss the Brotherhood ideology over coffee. She seduces him and her husband comes home in the middle of the night. As the narrator lies in bed with a sleeping, married woman, her husband opens the door to her darkened bedroom and looks in to tell her to wake him early in the morning. He never acknowledges seeing the narrator there and the narrator isn't certain that the man saw him, but rather than waiting around to find out, the narrator leaves. He spends the next few days waiting for a call from the Brotherhood to reprimand him for sleeping with one of the wives of a Brother, but when the call comes in the middle of the night, it's not about his affair. Brother Clifton is missing and Ras the Exhorter is taking over Harlem, so the narrator is being sent back to the district.
