“Didn’t you notice how Callie addressed you earlier? She called you her elder cousin-sister! I think it was deliberate on her part.”
“I am older than her, so it’s normal that she referred to me as her elder cousin-sister.”
“Normal, my *ss! You’re the same age as her, merely a few months older than her. The two of you aren’t all that close anyway, so why did she have to emphasize the fact that you’re her ‘elder’ cousin-sister? She did that intentionally to have others think that she’s very young.”
Naturally, by ‘others’, she meant Eric Walker, but what has this got to do with me? It’s Callie’s business if she’s young and beautiful. I’m not interested in competing with her. Thus, I whispered, “It’s okay. I don’t mind, so why are you so bothered? Instead of sulking because of such a trivial matter, you’d be better served to contemplate what we should do later.”
“You’re right. I would’ve forgotten all about it if you hadn’t reminded me. What should we do in the afternoon?” Isabella’s attention was immediately diverted.
“I want to go and visit Keira. She’s been sent to the boarding school for a while now, and I’ve been restraining myself from visiting her. Why don’t you accompany me to visit her this afternoon?”
