There’s an ugly confrontation between the father and daughter on the doorstep that evening. Zedadias is upset by Kev’s comments about Alice, and about him, but not once does either party invite him to join the conversation.
Alice is invited to stay the night again. Kev seems to believe this invitation is extended to him as well, and he sleeps on the sofa.
Despite being given the spare bed, Alice doesn’t sleep properly, and only snatches a few hours on top of the covers.
She gains a scowl on her face when she finds Kev hasn’t magically disappeared by the morning. Despite her displeasure, she starts preparing some food for him. She isn’t very hungry herself, but her father is still starving.
Zedadias does not seem to share her pity.
