  • I was right from the start, though... about you.
    0
    0
  • How could he be so calm about it?
    0
    0
  • His movements were deliberate as he walked toward her - as if he were measuring every word he was about to say.

    0
  • "I didn't know about him until you and I went to Texas," he added when she stared at him stupidly.
    0
    0
  • Is that what you and Dulce were fighting about?
    0
    0
  • They had been married almost five years, so... that meant the baby was conceived long before they met - about the time he and Tessa were going to get married.
    0
    0
  • I don't know why she didn't ask for it before - or why she didn't tell me about the baby.
    0
    0
  • No one had said anything about Dulce being married, either.
    0
    0
  • Maybe because she didn't want to think about it then.
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Why lie when she made it so easy for him to avoid talking about it at all?
    0
    0

    0
  • I guess I didn't think about it that way.
    0
    0
  • He was thinking about it now.
    0
    0
  • He said he felt bad about it, but conceded that Tessa had been less than honest with him on more than one occasion.
    0
    0
  • When Alex approached Carmen about giving Tessa some money, she said it was up to him, but keep in mind that the issue could have been something like drugs.
    0
    0
  • "Think about it," she answered.
    0
    0
  • You have thought much about what we discussed yesterday?
    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Jonathan was so excited that he couldn't stop talking about her.
    0
    0
