Edith stood in front of the couple, her face stiff with shock. Nothing could have prepared her for Rufus's visit.

"Mom, this is Rufus. You should know him,"

Cassandra said almost hesitantly. She kept her eyes on her mother's face, closely observing her reaction. Edith had put on the warmest smile possible, but it did not reach her eyes.

"Hello, Aunt Edith," Rufus spoke up next, greeting her warmly. "I finally managed to find time to pay you a visit."

As he spoke, he passed her the gift he had brought. The young man was being perfectly courteous and remained composed despite the looming tension that surrounded them.

Edith wordlessly accepted the gift, still not completely recovering from her shock.

Turning to Cassandra, she made up an excuse about needing her help with cooking and pulled her into the kitchen. The moment they were out of earshot, Edith started to throw a barrage of questions at her daughter.

"What is wrong with you, Cassandra? How could you not tell me that he was coming? And haven't I already told you to stay away from him? Didn't I tell you that I would never agree? Why are you being so stubborn?"

Edith found it hard to control her emotions as her words flew sharply. Her chest constricted at the thought that this was the same man who had ruined Cassandra's reputation. But now she was bringing him home with her.

"Wasn't he engaged with Amanda? Why is he with you again now? I thought you had already learned your lesson. Nothing good will come out of the two of you being together!"

She could not understand Cassandra's choice. Pain flashed through her chest as she thought of how her daughter had been left distraught after their separation. And now, it was as if she was making the same mistake again.

"What happened? Why do you look so dispirited?"

he asked.

She threw back a quick glimpse at the kitchen, looking like she wanted to say something but found her lips unable to move. It took Rufus less than a second to understand what she couldn't say.

"It's alright. We'll do it slowly. I believe she will be able to accept us little by little."

He lifted a hand to her cheek and caressed her affectionately. His eyes were warm as he looked at her, and Cassandra felt her confidence growing with his words.

The hand that was in the pocket now held her around the waist, and she was calmed by his familiar scent.

"Rufus, if my mom treats you badly, please don't feel offended. She is stubborn, but that's only because she looks out for me in her own way. Please be patient."

Cassandra met Rufus's eyes with a worried look, dreading the thought that the meal later would turn out to be unpleasant.

"You don't have to worry about it. She's your mother. I can take anything, if it's for you,"

he pinched her cheek jokingly and said. "Plus, I've been through worse. I doubt it's going to be that bad."
