Maisie leaned closer and couldn‘t help but laugh when she saw his black eye. “I‘m sorry, Quincy, we have to make it look believable. Saydie did pull back.”
“You‘re all devils!” Quincy angrily got out of the car.
After that incident, a lot of people believed that Maisie and Nolan were breaking up, and the rumors even got to Nicholas.
When Nolan got home, he was summoned to the study.
Nicholas slammed on the desk angrily.” How dare you, you rascal?“”
Alfred had told Nolan about this, so he knew why his father wanted to speak to him. He rubbed the bridge of his nose.”
Dad, it‘s not what you think.”
“What then?” Nicolas knocked on the desk.” Nolan, you begged Zee to marry you, but now that you have her, you‘re not even appreciating her?”
Nolan was feeling more and more helpless. “I told you, it‘s not what you think.”
“What else then-”
Nicholas looked at the things that were on the desk and finally picked up a book to throw at him.
Maisie suddenly rushed it. “Dad, hold on!”
Nicholas was in a throwing position but stopped when he saw Maisie. “Don‘t try to help this bast*rd. I‘ll skin him for betraying you!
Maisie held back her laughter and walked in front of Nolan. “Dad, listen. It really isn‘t what you think. We did this... for a reason.”
“A reason?” Nicholas calmed down and placed the book back on the table. “I would like to know the reason.”
Maisie explained everything to him. After clearing everything, the anger on Nicholas‘ face disappeared. He glared at Nolan. “Is that true?”
Nolan smiled sadly. “What else? I won‘t betray the wife I worked so hard to marry.”
Nicholas was quiet.
Maisie walked behind him and gave him a shoulder massage. “Please don‘t be angry, Dad. It‘s our fault for not telling you about it earlier.”
“I‘m relieved if it‘s not true.” Nicholas sighed but remembered something and looked at Nolan. “Who is this Cecile?” Nolan frowned. “I‘m not sure. We don‘t have a lot of information about her.”
Nicholas rubbed his temple because a headache started.
“However,” Nolan slowly added, “Her actual name is probably Maxine Reynolds. We can know more if we find out who Maxine Reynolds is.”
Nicholas paused and looked up. “Maxine Reynolds?”
Maisie and Nolan both looked toward him.‘ Do you know her?”
Nicholas shook his head. “No... I don’t.” But he was deep in thought.
Nolan and Maisie looked at each other when Quincy suddenly popped up, “Mr.
Goldmann–” When he saw that Nicholas was there, he nodded. “You‘re here, sir.”
Nicholas asked, “What‘s the matter?”
Quincy looked at Nolan, who then nodded, so he continued. “People from Stoslo said they have information about the sisters, Sue and Maxine Reynolds.”
Meanwhile, in Stoslo...
A group of men in black rushed into a residence while a handsome young man sat in the car parked in the yard. It was none other than Wayion–Wayne Goldmann.
