"You are making it harder for me to like you," Edgar said.

"Sally?" Alessandra wasn't aware anyone was following behind the two of them as she heard no footsteps. 

Had Sally been purposely following behind them to hear what they were speaking about or was she genuinely not trying to interrupt their conversation? If it was the latter, it was common courtesy to make your presence known in case something private might be said.
