In the hospital cafeteria. Sherri was interrogating Rose like the latter was a criminal, although her tone was not harsh. They had ordered a pizza, which was already on the table.
One of them folded her arms. Another was fiddling with the pizza, looking unconcerned.
The third woman looked guilty, casting glances at the pizza repeatedly. Unable to withstand her hunger, she caved in. “All right, it’s my fault, okay? I don’t intend to hide it from you. I just don’t know how to tell you I have to eat my words.”
When Sherri tried to introduce Rose to her brother, she remembered that Rose told her Edward was not her type.
Although Natalie knew the truth, she did not want to spill the beans. Otherwise, she might be implicated even further and would be the one being questioned. “Are you going to eat? The pizza is already cold. Can we talk as we eat?”
Sherri glared at Natalie. “Are you all right? She’s seeing a man behind our back. To make matters worse, the man she’s dating is my brother. To think that I was disappointed for days when I found out that Edward had fallen for another woman,
Natalie took a bite of the pizza. It was very hot. She quickly waved her hand in front of her mouth, causing a slight gentle current of air to enter her mouth to cool it down. When she finally swallowed her food, she quipped, “Well, the man in question your brother, not Hackett.”
Natalie shuddered when she saw how hard Sherri rolled her eyes.
She continued, “It’s fine if you don’t want to eat. What’s wrong with Rose dating your brother? Are you happy or upset about it? Don’t sprout any other nonsense.”
Natalie continued eating and offered them some napkins for the pizza. “Hurry up and cat.”
Sherri looked at Natalie and reminded her, “Hey, you’re pregnant. You’re not in conlinement.”
Natalie retorted, “Ma’am, I’m having twins, not one child. Are you trying to starve me to death?”
“I won’t dare. Go ahead and eat as much as you wish. Come on, tell me what happened between you and my brother. At least let me know if the air tickets are worth my money.”
Sherri took a slice of pizza and started eating
Rose was starving. She took a bite of the pizza and replied, “What do you think? You’re the one who hooked us up. You can’t blame me. Initially, I do like your brother, but I wasn’t sure if he likes me. Besides, you were the one who told me that Edward likes another woman You even said that he has a gulfriend. Do 1 look like a home wrecker to you?
“How can I break up your brother and that imaginary girlfriend? Although I later found out that the person your brother likes is me, I didn’t know anything before this. No one in the Roberts family will want to be a third party. That’s why I told you he is not my type.”
Sherri scoffed inwardly. “Which family will teach their kids to be a third party? The Landor family also has our principles.”
She was momentarily at a loss for words. It was her own doing that she almost lost Rose as a sister-in-law. Thinking back about the silly things she had done in the past, she hung her head low in embarrassment.
Natalie burst out laughing when she heard the conversation. “If your brother hadn’t succeeded in getting together with Rose, you would have been a great sinner. You have let your family down.”
Sherri was stumped.
Rose assured her, “It’s fine. It’
