Explanation

Given the clue that they were already late, delay would be a good focus. The incorrect pair, lurk and skulk, have a negative, furtive connotation — they are related to hanging around for some bad reason. Did the couple embrace? You don’t know. Avoid choices that make literal sense but cannot be justified by the clues.

Hence options dally, tarry are correct!
