Marianne found free parking and left the car. The supermarket was right across the street, and had to cross the road to get there. Paul found this to be a fantastic coincidence because Marianne was in the right place for them to proceed with his plan and be visible to anyone in the supermarket. After all, that is what he sought. Let Eric see them.
He accelerated his pace to catch her as he was ready to cross the road.
Paul had approached her enough to hold her lightly by the arm.
Marianne, surprised, turned to see who it was.
"Paul?" she said, not believing her eyes.

"There is no way I can hear you and let me go" she shook her arm with force to release it, but Paul tightened his grip.
"You have to listen to me. It won't take you more than a minute."

My mother reached out and pulled him closer to us. "How many times do I have to tell you to call me mother? You will become our son in a few months. Oh! My children, you made us so happy!"
