A brief dialogue in sociopathy

Claire: I couldn't believe my ears, Julius. Just two paces away, three of the students at school were gossiping about Professor Julius having an affair with one of the teachers. I was mortified, Julius. What is happening?

Julius: My darling, I swear I don't even know what you're talking about. Affair? As in... cheating?

Claire: Yes! As in cheating. My heart is broken. How could you? Is any of t true?

3 seconds of silence go by. 

Julius: What are you even talking about? What are you asking me?

Claire: I can already see it in your eyes. Just want to hear it from your own mouth.

His faced slowly relaxed, ears went down, back straightened. His eyes clenched halfway, a smirk appeared on the left of his mouth. He leaned forward quickly, took two steps towards Claire and hugged her.

Julius: Then you already know. I've never cheated on you, not even once.

Claire looked surprised, then calmer. She then started to slowly hug him back. Eventually, she gave in to his embrace completely, with utter abandon.
