Nolan stared at the profile as a glint flashed across his eyes. “Maybe the Sue who got burned to death wasn‘t Adrian‘s student.”
Maisie nodded in a trance. Nolan was right. Sue was a bit shorter than Rowena was, so there was no way Adrian wouldn‘t suspect her when Rowena pretended to be Sue.
Even though there was a possibility that Rowena might come up with many excuses and lies, it all made sense now. After all, on the profile, Maxine‘s height was 5‘4“, about the same as Rowena‘s.
Perhaps even Rowena did not know about this “coincidence.” She would have never targeted Sue if she had known that Sue had a twin sister
Quincy scratched his head and said, “This is strange. She knew that Rowena was pretending to be Sue, but instead of exposing her, she allowed her to stay around Adrian as Sue. Why would she do that?”
Maisie did not say anything in return...
Nolan suddenly closed the computer and said, “We will know the reason when we find her.”
“What are you doing in front of the door?”
Suddenly, Saydie’s voice erupted outside of the office.
Quincy knew that someone was eavesdropping on them. He hastily went out of the office and saw Saydie standing in front of Cecile.
Cecile did not appear to be nervous at all.
With a smile on her face, she lowered her head to look at the document in her arms and said, “I’m sorry. I‘m here to deliver the documents, but I heard that you guys were talking, so I didn‘t enter.”
Saydie‘s face sank. “You were clearly eavesdropping.”
Cecile was stunned. Then, she smiled. “I was standing in the doorway and happened to be able to hear their conversation. Does this count as me eavesdropping as well?”
Maisie and Nolan came out.
When Nolan saw the document in her hands, he signaled Quincy to take it.
After Quincy took the document, Nolan said flatly, “You can ask the head of your department to deliver the document next time.”
Cecile nodded. “Alright.”
She gave them a smile and added, “If there‘s nothing else, I‘m leaving first.”
She turned around and left.
Quincy asked, “I‘m sure she heard everything. Are we going to let her go away like that?”
Nolan returned to his office. “So what if she heard everything? It isn‘t a secret at all.”
Quincy pouted and looked at Maisie.
Maisie crossed her arms in front of her chest and smiled “Your boss is right.”
Saydie and Maisie came out of the elevator. When they were about to leave Blackgold, Cecile called them.
Standing at the entrance, Maisie turned around to look at Cecile. “Ms: Wolfsbane, is there anything I can help you with?”
Cecile stopped in front of her and smiled.” I‘m sorry. I overheard your conversation, so I know you guys were talking about Maxine.” Maisie looked at her. “You know Maxine?”
“Yes,” she replied flatly.
There was a coffee shop nearby Blackgold. After the waiter served two cups of coffee, Cecile picked up hers and said with a smile on her face. “Actually, I‘m pretty familiar with Maxine and her sister.”
Maisie looked at her and asked, “How familiar?”
She lifted her eyelids to look at Maisie and replied calmly, “I know everything that happened between them.”
She took a sip from the coffee and smiled.’ I know you were once a designer in Luxella, Mrs. Goldman, so you got to know Sue. Poor Sue, she was kind enough to save a woman, but the woman burned her to death.”
“It seems to me that you know a lot about these events,” Maisie replied, offering her a smile of her own.
The corner of Cecile‘s lips curled into a smile as she continued. “Of course, I know a lot about it.”
She ran her finger over the cup‘s rim and added calmly, “After all, it‘s because of her that Maxine could only live as her shadow.
