Mary Hades - Sarah Dalton

I absolutely despise characters like Mary's mother.

 

Mary's just told her mother she made a friend and it happens to be a guy.

 

Mum drums on the table with excited fingers. "Oh, I can tell just from looking at your face. He's downright gorgeous, isn't he? Please tell me you used protection."

 

So Mary's mum just assumes Mary's off having sex with random guys.

 

Then, when Mary says the boy is local, not a tourist, Mary's mother practically forces an engagement on them:

 

"Then you're going to have to get out there and explore. Good men are hard to come by, Mary. Don't let one slip through your fingers. Go into town and see if you can find him."

 

SERIOUSLY WHO ACTS LIKE THIS? MARY IS SEVENTEEN NOT FORTY SINGLE AND A DESPERATE CAT LADY.
