Nolan loosened his tie and calmly said, ‘No.
Cecile saw that Maisie was upset, so she tried to explain, “Mrs. Vanderbilt, it‘s a misunderstanding,”
“This is none of your business.” Maisie glared at her.
Cecile was happy when she saw that. “How could you suspect him? We‘re just working together, and you‘re his wife. You should trust him.”
Maisie stared at her face and chuckled. “What? Are you feeling bad because of this? You knew that I‘m his wife, but if I didn‘t show up just now, you‘d probably be in his arms already.”
Nolan almost smiled, but he kept his composure. “Zee, go home
Maisie yelled, “Must you keep this woman around!?”
Nolan frowned. “This is my office. Don‘t make a scene here.”
Cecile was relieved when Nolan said that, so she continued. “Ma‘am, this isn‘t Soul. It‘s Blackgold. Please understand–”
Maisie slapped her across the face when she almost finished.
Cecile turned her face over and looked at Maisie in disbelief. “Ma‘am”
Maisie approached her. “Who do you think you are? All the women who tried to get close to my husband have lost to me, and even you won‘t be as good as lam.”
Cecile put her hand to her face and looked like she was wronged “Ma‘am, that‘s a huge misunderstanding.”
At that moment, Nolan said, “Maisie, stop it, go home.”
Maisie looked at him, “You‘re chasing me away?” She angrily picked up her bag.” Alright, don‘t let me find out that you‘re doing something behind my back. And you, I won‘t let you get away with this.”
She turned and left without looking back.
The moment the door closed, Cecile looked toward Nolan, who looked calm, so she didn’t say anything but instead took a step back, “Mr. Goldmann, it‘d be best if you explained to her.”
Nolan opened up a file with no expression.” There‘s no need. I can‘t spoil her too much.”
Cecile didn‘t say anything, but the corners of her lips curled slightly upward,
‘Rowena Summers failed because they were madly in love, but now that they‘ve been married for so many years, their relationship is no longer as hot. Too bad that she wasn‘t able to live long enough to see this!
But Cecile could.
In the garage....
Maisie sat at the back of the car and touched up on her makeup. “She probably believes us 100% now.”
Quincy, who was in the passenger‘s seat, turned to look at her with a huge grin.” Daisie definitely got her acting skills from the both of you. The entire company is going to be talking about this tomorrow.”
“That‘s perfect.” Maisie put her mirror away and looked up, “How would it look real if that didn‘t happen?”
Saydie, who was in the driver‘s seat, looked at Quincy. “You can leave now.”
Quincy didn‘t know what to say. Was he just a tool that could be summoned and pushed away when needed?
When he was getting off, Maisie called out to him. “People would be suspicious if you just went back like that.”
Quincy paused. “What should I do then?”
Maisie smiled and looked at Saydie, who understood her. She suddenly curled her finger, asking Quincy to come closer.
Quincy suspiciously leaned in, and then Saysie gave him a big punch on his left eye, which made him yelp in pain. “Why did you have to do that!?”
