Priya turned to Leyla and said: “He’s a really good liar, why didn’t you say anything?”
“Because he would rather lie to my face than tell me the truth, and every time he does it, it’s like a knife in my heart,” Leyla confessed.
“I have tried so many times to get him to open up, I would support him through anything, but he just keeps shutting me out.”
Leyla told Priya that Liam had been claiming to have worked at the hospital for a couple of weeks, leading Priya to tell her: “Do you really think he’s been gardening all that time?
“So, he’s been lying to you, he’s hiding his grief, and we still don’t know what he’s been doing for eight hours of every day, Leyla this is really unhealthy.
“Liam could be having a full-on breakdown, and the longer you leave it, the worse it’s going to get,” she expressed.
Could Liam just be finding a way to handle his grief and hiding it from his wife?
Or has he secretly been embarking on an affair with Bernice, which Leyla may soon expose?
