I'm not sure why I thought getting involved in this situation was a good idea, but I ended up seeing Marta hiding behind a tree today. I went to talk to her, but she hushed me immediately and pointed to the scene in front of her. About ten meters away was Emil happily talking with a cute girl. Apparently, Marta went into town today to buy a few things and happened upon the scene by accident, or so she says...
Emil was holding a small kitten which he handed to the girl. She hugged the kitten tightly before clinging to Emil with excitement. Apparently, this was too much for Marta because she nearly passed out. I managed to hold her up, though it didn't take long for her to revive and charge toward the girl. When I grabbed her arm to stop her, she nearly attacked me, but I managed to calm her down a little.
She went on and on about how she couldn't believe Emil would do this and that this 'new girl' probably wants to take him away from her. I tried to explain to her that the girl was clearly too young, but Marta wouldn't listen and decided she was going to follow Emil wherever he went to make sure he doesn't talk to this girl.
Emil noticed us after the girl left and smiled happily as he walked toward us, unaware of the chaos. When he arrived, Marta stood in front of him, two centimeters from his face, with a look of intensity. She questioned him about the girl, but he just smiled and said he helped her find her lost kitten. Marta wasn't buying it, and Emil finally realized the situation he was in. He took a careful step back and explained that the girl was only ten years old. She was just tall for her age, and the kitten wasn't a gift. He really was just returning it to her.
With that, Marta's expression softened and she hugged Emil telling him how kind it was of him to help a child in need. Emil smiled shyly and scratched the back of his head before looking at me. I could tell by the look in his eyes that he wanted me to stay and hang out with the two of them in case Marta went crazy again. He opened his mouth to speak, but I cut him off quickly saying I had homework to do. Sorry, Emil. I can't help you with this one.
