    "Could it be you're afraid of the consequences...

    I was reading a story and I encountered this quote:

    "Could it be you're afraid of the consequences - maybe just uncertain of what is to come?"

    I wanted to know if the quote mentioned above is considered grammatically correct. If not, I would like to know how it can be properly phrased.

    Please and thank you.

    Re: "Could it be you're afraid of the consequences...

    The sentence is correct. I would change the hyphen to an em dash (two hyphens).
