CHAPTER 31 BIG HINT
- Seeing her step-mother hugging a tall, handsome, well-built dude raised Marie’s curiosity to another level. He did not seem very old. Instead, he was just about the right age according to his body, and that piqued her curiosity as to who this man could be. Never had she ever seen him around, but then she remembered that she was not at home most of the time, and she could never really guess what happened behind her back.
- It was a given that his step-mom would be the happiest not to have Marie around because from her behavior it seemed like that almost every time. But something like what was happening in front of Marie’s eyes was difficult to accept, especially from someone who had always spoken ill about friendships between the opposite gender. Something which Delilah revolted was being followed by her, and hypocrisy was shining bright.
- Marie stepped out of the eatery without worrying about being called at the counter once her order was done. Delilah was participating in the hug by placing just one hand around the man and on his back. Every inch of her palm was completely resting on his back. And just as soon as she saw Marie getting closer, she immediately backed off making it look as if she pushed the dude away. But it was very easy to understand that it was intentionally done.
