Only The Shadow Knows What Is Really Lurking!
The uninvited crasher appeared at the reception. Courtney's face turned extremely ashen. She gasped and fainted. The other guests and family members were shocked that this crasher dared to appear! Schyler seems to be incensed that this crasher is going to ruin a perfect reception. Margo saw the crasher and ran into the anteroom. How dare this crasher appear at the reception! What exactly does this crasher want?
The crasher walked around the reception area. The crasher saw that others were having a very good time. The crasher was attempting to greet the other guest and family members. No one wanted to greet the crasher. People retreated when the crasher attempted to be friendly towards them. It is clear that no one wanted this crasher!
People tried to stay as far away from this crasher as possible. The crasher was alone at the reception. However the crasher did not care at all. The crasher just strolled around the reception area, eating and drinking champagne. Kavanagh, Schyler, and Ulrike were gathered around, talking to each other and eyeing the crasher suspiciously! As the crasher went over to greet Kavanagh, she coldly eyed the crasher and said nothing!
The crasher is completely unconcerned about the cold reception from these people. In fact, the crasher consider these people to be complete non-entities. The crasher maintained that there were better things to do than to mindlessly socialize and make inane coversation with these people. The purpose of coming to this reception is to speak to Margo. This crasher has some issues with Margo that WILL be discussed AND resolved. That is it-nothing more, nothing less!
The crasher is coldly observing the reception and studying the people. The crasher is just biding time and assessing the situation before confronting Margo. The crasher knew who Margo REALLY is. The crasher maintain that Margo's private persona is diametrically opposite to that of her All-American squeaky clean image. The crasher knew of the secret trysts and liasons. The crasher is about to divulge the dark lurid details regarding the all-American angel!
The crasher is nobody's fool and not to be trifled with. The crasher is a quiet observer who knows the innermost secrets and doings of most of the people in the reception area. The crasher is thinking how hypocritical and pretentious the marriage between Margo and Hamilton was. They did not LOVE each other. They married each other in acquiescence to their wealthy and powerful parents. Hell, they hardly knew each other when they became engaged. Their relationship was strictly on acquaintance, not passion!
The crasher knows what passion is. Margo and Hamilton's relationship would be described as the exact opposite of passion. Margo is totally wrong for Hamilton and he is TOTALLY wrong for her! Margo is sophisticated in ways that Hamilton is not. Although Hamilton is a grown man, in many ways he is a boy! This marriage is DEFINITELY not going to work out! The crasher was laughing silently!
The crasher decided to smoke a cigar much to the chagrin of the other guests and family members at the reception. Ulrike, the matriarch, went over to snatch the cigar out of the crasher's hand. As Ulrike attempted to do so, the crasher menacingly dared her to do so! Ulrike just excused herself. The crasher just demonically smiled at her and walked away!
The crasher was different from most of the guests and family members at the reception. The crasher, who is darkly attractive, was born into a working class family in Harlem.

Schyler believed her daughter, giving her ten minutes to get herself together and be with her husband..............As Schyler was leaving the anteroom, the crasher came in unexpectedly.
