Pru is too trusting. At least one suspicious-acting person in her life has already turned out to be bad news. Now I'm worried about another person close to her, one who seems to be keeping important details from her. Pru even knows this person has kept stuff from her. Why isn't she wondering what else they might be hiding?
And OMG, mice don't move whole pieces of furniture. I get that it can be comforting to lie to yourself about things that worry or scare you, but Pru takes it to a whole new level.
