Yesterday, Daniel and Geraldine, after many trysts, decide that they cannot live this way anymore. So they go to John Winter and proclaim their love for each other with Geraldine leaving him. John erupts in anger and threatens to kill Daniel. They become involved in a fight.

I’m not sure where it is going to go. Certainly, it’s unlikely that Daniel and Geraldine will live together as their standing in the community, the church, and with the families will be not only frowned upon but also stigmatized.

In any case, Daniel moral beliefs as well as Geraldine’s may this scenario unlikely, at least in the culture and mores of the times. Although others might act differently, it is not so with them.

All in all, it is a dilemma that I will have to solve.
