I'm not sure if this should go in characters or plot, but I'm sticking it here as it's to do with characters. Someone move it if they feel it's more appropriate elsewhere. Basically, I'd like to know if others think this is a believable reaction from a character. My MC has a secret she's keeping from everyone. She's moved to a new village in order to hide the secret better and makes friends with a girl who lives there called Martha. The MC is seen delivering a threatening letter, and because she is only seen from behind and wearing Martha's bonnet (that she gave to the MC after hers was ruined), the person assumes it is Martha who has done it and tells her father. He gets very angry and withdraws his permission for her to marry her sweetheart as well as some other stuff. Martha realises that my MC must have been the one who delivered the letter and in turn gets angry. She's discovered the MC's secret and proceeds to tell the MC's love interest. Do you think it sounds believable that a person could react in this way? After all, it's not the MC's fault that she was wearing the bonnet, or that she was seen and the person mistook her for Martha. Would it be logical to blame the MC in this situation?
