This passageiswhen Tita goes to congratulate Pedro and her sister after the marriage ceremony. When she gives Pedro a hug, he holds her tight and whispers that in her ear. It make Tita full of joy but upset Mama Elena. She tells Tita she is no fool after that and is not allowed around Pedro after the wedding.
The way Pedro holds Titamakes her feel good and happy again. It does not say how Rosaurafeels, but everyone else in the room notices he whispered in her ear. This shows how strict Mama Elena is, she was very upset about Pedro telling her anything and says she has played those games before and for Tita not to lie to her about what Pedro said. If Mama Elena has played those games before, does it
mean that she was once in love with someone else other than her father or maybe they had the same struggles as Tita and Pedro that Mama Elena is just trying to protect her from.
This passage shows that Tita’s view on this marriage could change. When Pedro tells her the real reason why he accepts the hand in marriage, it does not upset Tita. Maybe she could forgive Pedro and be happy with him marrying her sister as long as they could still be around each other.
In formal writing, especially about literature, avoid it.
You get the feeling that Mama Elena is a tyrant.
It seems to me that Pedro is selfish.
