She kind of looked at him weird but kept on eating. Then he began to talk to her about how it was his birthday and no one had given him a birthday kiss yet. So she decided that he seemed like a nice old man and she would give him a little kiss on the cheek. So as she went to lean in to give the old man a kiss he grabs her face and kisses her really hard on the lips. That is right where they end the chapter too.
