| Quote #10
Obi had done his best to make the whole thing sound unimportant. Just a temporary setback and no more. Everything would work out nicely in the end. His mothers' mind had been affected by her long illness but she would soon get over it. AS for his father, he was as good as won over. "All we need do is lie quiet for a little while," he said.
Though he would like to believe otherwise, Obi is not ready to forsake his family for the woman he loves. He tries to make it sound like he is not breaking up with Clara, but she knows the truth.
