om the Stuart womenfolk and clenched his trembling hand into a fist.
His older sister at that time was much more violent than usual.
She had just bawled in front of the whole family and suddenly became fierce after realizing how embarrassing she had been.
People nearing forty truly turn nasty when they try to hide their embarrassment.
What he experienced that day was a prime example.

“Sorry, he isn’t in a good frame of mind today.
Don’t mind it.”


George apologized to the student who had come to talk to them before urging his younger brother to head to the classroom.
