What troubled Emily was that she had been introduced to ‘Mrs’ and never for a pico second thought of her as a rival for Nick’s affection. Never.
She could have continued with Nick, married him, and never know that he was a cheater.
It was that experience which made her more suspicious of Sandy than perhaps she ought be.
After dinner with Dylan’s sister, she had said she was tired and asked him to drop her home. Dylan said she could sleep in his bed.
She took a breath, told him; “There is something I need to discuss with you, but not tonight. We’ll meet for lunch tomorrow…”
Dylan was disappointed but it was not an earthquake. Not even a minor tremor.
That is how he felt when he left Emily at her door and went home alone.
