A few steps away, Charlotte froze in shock for a couple of seconds when a thought suddenly surfaced in her head. Her face turned grave, and she solemnly lowered her head. Without saying a word, she walked over to Nora’s side and looked at Roel as well.
Roel’s eyes quivered ever so slightly before the confrontation with the two women. He squeezed out a smile and replied.
“What are you saying, Nora? We are…”
“Lovers. It has been so ever since we were nine. It has never been said explicitly, but you should be more than aware of it.”
Nora’s calm response put Roel at a loss for words. Seeing this, she sighed softly and continued.
“You should have been somewhat aware of it all this while, but you chose to turn your eyes away from it. I can understand where you are coming from. Our identities do complicate things, and there are many things you have to consider. I’ve never blamed you for it, and I’m willing to give you time and space to think things through.

Roel’s body jolted when he heard those words.
Even without him saying a word, the answer was already made clear through his reaction. Charlotte felt her heart lurch out of despondency, and her eyes started to moisten.
This was something that had been pricking at her heart for some time now. She had seen Roel and Lilian embracing one another on the balcony, and no matter how she looked at it, it didn’t look like he was forced by Lilian to leave their side.
