"Is Isla back?" Kay asked enthusiastically. Although Isla was reluctant to speak with her, she couldn't avoid greeting her neighbor in a civil manner. "Yeah, I'm back, Kay. How have you been lately?" Isla asked, barely forcing a smile on her face.

"I've been doing all right, " replied Kay, who was well known for having a big mouth in the village. "Our Isla is such a beautiful girl. You look just like what your mother when she was about your age, " Kay praised, gripping Isla by her hand and observing her carefully.

"Do I? Thank you, " Isla replied pleasantly. "You're looking very young as well, " continued Isla.

"You always speak out pleasing words just as you did when you were a little girl, " Kay said and laughed, amused by Isla's compliments. "Isla, you will be thirty after New Year, right?" she asked.

"Yeah, " Isla answered. "I will turn thirty next year, " she continued. Upon hearing Kay mentioning her age, Isla had guessed what Kay was gong to say next.

"Hello, Kay, " Aron greeted.

Kay gazed at Aron with jealousy. She felt a sense of deja vu, like she had seen him somewhere before.

"Yes, he is, " Jina nodded. "Didn't you say that only a married man would be interested in Isla? See? My daughter is an excellent girl, " Jina said proudly.

"Aunt Jina, if there isn't anything else, I will excuse myself first. I need to carry those presents from the trunk and put them in the house, " Aron said respectfully, with a charming smile.

"I will help you, " Isla followed. She finally found an excuse to get away from there. "Aron, sorry. I didn't think that mom..." Isla apologized to Aron.
