I am still struggling to get through this a bit, but I'm getting more interested now that stuff is actually happening. Lucy obviously is starting to like Dr. John/Graham, and is starting to get more involved in her own life. Good for her for sticking up for herself in that art gallery. She can look at whatever she damn well pleases, M. Paul. THAT annoyed me. Who does that guy think he is, her dad? Geez. I guess it's nice that he is concerned for her well-being, but come on.
And FINALLY Dr. John realizes Ginevra is a jerk. Though why Lucy swoops in to defend her like she does I have no idea. I know she feels a loyalty to her and find her a harmless flirt, but man, when someone is hurting about his crush like that, you agree with them. Though I suppose Ginevra is her only friend at Villette, which kind of sucks honestly.
I think my favorite part of this section was when Lucy saw that pink dress. I could just imagine her thinking, "Oh hell no." But I bet it looked great with the black lace overlay.
I'm sort of worried about M. Paul getting upset with Lucy at the concert. He does not seem to be someone Lucy wants to have as an enemy, and he seemed genuinely upset at her trying to avoid him. I think he's overreacting honestly, but still, he's going to treat her differently from now on.
One thing that's really annoying me is Lucy's constant interjections from her present-day self like "THAT WAS WHEN I WAS HAPPY" and whatnot. Obviously she's not happy anymore; that's something I would like to see through foreshadow, not "hintity hint hint" from old lady Lucy.
Anyway, on to the next five chapters. I could use some real crazy crap going on in here.
