Aram and his sister Lydia are talking while Aram’s father is taking Hailey on a tour of the parish church. It is a quiet lane just off the town center and war monument, just the place for a serious conversation. Lydia knows that her brother has tended toward unsuitable girl friends, but Hailey is different and now her brother is reluctant to admit the time has come to make a serious commitment.
“You know, Aram that she is quite perfect for you, nothing like the others you have brought here. So sweet yet strong and plain as rain and a proper English beauty, too. You will never find another like her. And I can tell that she likes you a lot. Sisters always know.
“I know you don’t like to express your feelings, but the time for that is over. What is the worst that can happen if you ask the question? A slap on the face? She is far to kind for that. A polite no thanks or maybe I'll think about it?
“It is up to you no matter what she thinks of you. She can't respect a man who lacks the courage to ask. And of you don’t ask you will never know and could regret it for the rest of your life.”
The words hurt but Aram knows them to be true.

That's what sisters are for! Some blokes are naturally a bit shy.
