"She is Leena, my wife. I brought her here so you can meet her. We weren't able to inform you when we got married since we were in a hurry." Kevin shot Leena a warm gaze and smiled. He knew that Leena was not like other wealthy ladies. Thus, he was sure that Leena would not hate this place. That was why he brought her along.

"Hello, Mamie. Nice to meet you." Leena greeted the old lady with delight. Her curiosity about Kevin's relationship with the old woman was eating her but she didn't ask. She was sure that Kevin would tell her everything anyway since he brought her here.

"Nice to meet you, Leena! How beautiful you are!" Mamie took Leena's hand kindly and looked at her lovingly.

"Thank you for your compliment." In reaction, Leena said in a shy tone and bowed her head.

"Let's go in first." It was Kevin who broke the exchange of pleasantries between Mamie and his wife. He couldn't be happier that Mamie seemed to like Leena almost instantly.

"Oh! Right! I'm so happy that I forgot to let you in. Why do you bring so many presents every time you come?" Mamie grumbled at Kevin and took over what he had in his hand for fear that he would be too tired.

"It's not easy for me to see you, so I must bring what you need." Kevin knew that she didn't usually go downtown and couldn't afford to buy expensive things. Thus, he bought what she needed every time he went to see her. He felt better seeing her okay.

"Alas! I actually don't need so much stuff since I live alone. I haven't used up what you bought me last year. There would have been more left of it if I didn't give some to my neighbors. Don't buy me anything next time. It is tiring to bring so much stuff," scolded Mamie as she feigned anger. However,

house and Leena could feel it from where she stood.

"Are you all right?" Leena asked Kevin worriedly. She had been watching him since this morning and still, she didn't have a clue about what he was thinking.

"Yes, I am fine. Let's get to work!" Trying to control his tears, Kevin looked up and blinked his eyes. A few seconds after and he was able to recover himself. He then walked out of the house quickly without even looking back.

That moment made Leena realize that Kevin and Mamie might have shared something really sad. Otherwise, they wouldn't have acted that way. She knew, however, she couldn't ask. Thus, she just silently walked next to him and helped him by handing him his tools. She was mummed the whole time. Her curiosity was eating her inside out but she just smiled at him every time their eyes met and pretended to be calm.

That afternoon, Kevin and Mamie took her to a country graveyard. Standing before one of those graves there finally made Leena understand how heavy and sad things were for the two. The tall trees around the place played as silent spectators to them, together with the mild wind and afternoon sun.
