“What do you mean?”
“Who is she and what is she to you?”
“I don’t know what you are talking about!”
“Oh come on, Edward! Don’t give me that bullshit! I’ve seen the way you look at her and I feel that there’s something going on between you two!”
“You're imagining things, Liz!”
“I’m not! I knew we’re stuck in this loveless marriage but I know the look of love when I see it! and I see it in the way you look at her!”
“And what do you know of love? Have you ever been in a serious relationship?”
“Nope! But  what I do know is that’s the way I wish the person I love would look at me.”
“Wait? Are you trying to tell me you're in love with me?”
“You wish!”
“So tell me,  who is he?”
“Does it matter?”
“Of course, it does!” Edward sees a bit of hope in their situation.
“Would you marry him if you could?”
“I would in a heartbeat?”
“Then why don’t you?”
“Because he only sees me as a younger sister!| so, unfortunately,  you're stuck with me!” then she wounds her arms around his waist and puts her chin on Edward’s shoulder even pouting her lips as if asking for a kiss.
Which is the scene that Mary Dale sees you entering the room.
She swallows the lump in her throat and tries her hardest to not let it affect her.
“Here’s your order sir, ma’am! Enjoy the night!” she says after arranging their orders on the table.
Edward tried to push Elizabeth away from him but she only tightened her hold on him.
She doesn’t know why, but she wants to see the waitress reaction.
She would have made a scene if she saw the man she love dating another woman.
So she was surprised with the waitress just smiled at them and left.
She let’s go of Edward.
Then she claps.                                                        
“No wonder you're in love with her!”
Edward just looks at her confused.
“So, are you going to tell me who she is or not? If you don’t tell me who she is,  I’m going to kiss you in front of her!” she says with a wicked grin.
Edward sighs and answers her…………
“She’s Mary Dale. She’s my girlfriend. Ex-girlfriend I mean! I broke up with her because of our engagement!” he says wearily.
“Oh my God! I’m  sorry!”
“It's not your fault! I agreed to our engagement before I even met her!”
“You mean you entered into a relationship with her knowing that you are already engaged to me?”
Elizabeth doesn’t know why she feels angry with what Edward did.
“Did she know of that fact when you asked her to be your girlfriend?”
“No. I told her I knew of our engagement just recently and that’s why we had to break up!”
“Oh my God, Edward! I didn’t know that you are such a jerk!” she feels angry now!
She can't imagine what she would have done if she were in Mary Dale’s shoes.
“When did you two break up?”
“Only recently.”
“And you have the guts to show your face to her here after what you did?”
“I miss her!” Edward admits with a lump in his throat.
“I didn’t know that you are a cruel bastard, Edward!” she gets up and pulls Edward up with her.
Edward looks at her confused.

“We should leave! Don’t show your face to her until you’ve grown some  balls!”
