Then again, it clearly wasn't a good time for Radu either.
The greenery worker paused a moment, taking stock of the situation. He stared at Radu for a time, unsure what to think while Manuela voiced her concern, and even if he had not seen her start to cry he could have heard it in her voice. This was a mess, both in the spilled drink and broken glass and in every other sense of the word.
"It means someone lied to him," Pavel guessed, his gaze meeting Radu's. He knew there was a lot the other man had never told him, but there was a lot that he had. That, and his relationship with the Katoracovs, told him everything he needed to know to make an educated guess about the situation.
"Am I right?" he demanded, anger still in his tone from the way Radu had reacted toward Manuela, mixed with sadness for his friend.
