Mr. and Mrs. Philips lived in the neighborhood. They had very good terms with Rose and Bane. They would often invite Mr. and Mrs. Philips over the dinner as it was only the dinner that Bane could usually manage to have with his entire family. Bane would often find Rose at the neighbors’ on his return from the office. She would go there to offer Mr. and Mrs. Philips a share from the new recipe of pizza she had tried or a portion of fried Tuna. Bane liked her for her caring nature and generosity.
Mr. Philips was a very jolly and extraverted person. He was quite verbose and had good oratory skills. No one could win an argument with him. Bane liked him for his talkative nature as Bane liked being a listener more than a speaker. Rose also enjoyed the discussions. Mrs. Philips was a rather shy and silent person. She did not participate in the discussions much, and sat mostly with a plain face. It seemed as if there was some problem with her, something that never came up. Once, Mr. Philips kindly insisted she play soccer with them after the meal, and he noticed her mumble something in her mouth like she did not want to go but had no courage to refuse openly and instead kept it to She guided the children in studies. Bane was responsible for financially supporting the family. He performed his duties efficiently even if that meant having to stay up to 10 hours at work from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. This was a happy family, or this was how Bane thought at least.
