Beth smiled, coming out of her shock to dispute Dorothy's ridiculous claim. "What are you talking about? Perhaps it would be best that you don't drink anymore. Scarlet might have done something to you."

"And here I thought you wouldn't annoy me by trying to deny it. I'm already annoyed that you had me fooled. Had me trying to ignore how you got with my son to help you with what you needed for a baby. You've upset me two ways," Dorothy said.

The first was getting involved with a married man and the second was lying about a baby simply to have something over Scarlet.

"You spoke about a child to get at Scarlet, didn't you? That was quite low of you. You also fed into my son's want to have a child. Why should I help you now, Beth?" Dorothy questioned, staring at the little fool before her. 

How could Beth stoop so low and then expect someone to reach out their hand to help her?
