That was why she didn‘t tell Colton that she was going to the movies. Since she had promised Zephir, she couldn‘t just cancel it.
Maisie smiled and rubbed her head. “I understand. You just don‘t want your friends to feel bad, right?”
Daisie nodded, and Maisie smiled warmly.” All you need to do is to speak to Colton. Look, if you don‘t tell him how you feel, you‘ll be protecting your friends but hurting your family because he did it out of care. He was upset when you talked back.”
Daisie thought about it for a long time, and the anger in her heart soon disappeared. She stood up. “Mom, I‘ll go talk to him now!
She ran out of the room.
Maisie walked out and was startled by Nolan, who was leaning on the wall with his arms crossed. “How long have you been there
“Not long.” He smiled and looked at her. ” You managed to convince Daisie so quickly.”
“Well, it‘s because I gave birth to her.” Maisie raised her brows.
Nolan took a step forward and leaned down to give her a warm kiss on her forehead. “Our children are mature because they have a mom who knows them well.”
He cupped her cheeks. “It‘s a shame that I couldn‘t be there when you were giving birth to them.”
Maisie smiled and held his hand. “The past is in the past. I‘ll be happy if you‘ll be there when I‘m old and in bed.”
Daisie and Colton poked their heads out and saw how lovey-dovey their parents were.
The next day, Saydie parked her car in the private rental zone.
Maisie got out and looked at the crowd gathered there.
She turned to say to Saydie, “Let‘s go take a look.”
Saydie nodded and walked toward the crowd. There was a police cruiser, and the person who made a report immediately walked forward. “Officers, finally, this way.”
He brought them toward the area. The crowd didn‘t know what had happened, so they were discussing.
“What happened here?”
“I heard that the landlady died. I saw her going to the market this morning and even greeted her. Who would‘ve known that she would be stabbed to death on her way back? That‘s so scary.”
Maisie and Saydie looked at each other. They wanted to take a look at Linda‘s home but didn‘t expect to walk into a murder scene
The police officers walked down with the victim‘s family, who was crying. The police officers gave their condolences and were going to leave when one of them noticed Maisie.
He walked over. “Mrs: Goldmann, why are you here?”
Maisie smiled and replied, “I’m here to take a look at Linda‘s home, but I wasn‘t expecting this to happen.”
The officer was surprised. “Linda
Vanderbilt lived here?”
She nodded. “Yes.”
“Linda Vanderbilt?” The victim‘s family member heard the name and walked over. It was the landlady‘s son. “That woman is our tenant and hasn‘t paid her rent for months. We couldn‘t get a hold of her. It must be her! She must have killed my mom!”
The police officer rubbed his temple and calmly explained, “Linda passed away a few days ago, so there‘s no way she did this.
