After a few days, Maxine was given a life sentence.
Maisie went to see her one last time. When the warden brought her to the visitation room, she still looked calm as ever. not
showing signs that she was a person on death row.
She sat down and put the receiver to her ear, then smiled. “It‘s ironic that you‘re the last person I see.”
Maisie looked at her. “Do you not regret your actions?”
“Regret?” She laughed, but her eyes were cold. “There‘s nothing to regret about. I‘m not the one at fault. The world is at fault for not being fair to me.”
Maisie‘s eyes darted. “I sympathize with you, but this isn‘t a good reason to kill someone for revenge.” “What do you know? Have you gone through what I have?”
Maxine‘s expression was dark. “I was six when I had to go through such an ugly experience, but the man who assaulted me was perceived as a good man because he was enthusiastic and had so–called good behavior. He easily convinced the police and neighbors, and even my mother. What I said as a six–year–old became a lie, and the neighbors were against me, just because the man who assaulted me was a polite old man.”
The hatred in her eyes darkened. “I was the one who had to go through that, but my mother was disgusted at me. Sue didn‘t have to go through any of that. She was a
blank paper with outstanding colors while I was tainted.”
After that, she smiled eerily. “When I fed her the poison and told her howl burned Sue to death, it was ironic to see her apologize to me while she cried.”
Maisie looked at her with pity. “Do you really think your mother didn‘t believe you and was disgusted? You were wrong. She believed you, but she couldn‘t do anything to help.
ad to bring the two of you up in a foreign country. She even had to ask your father for help. After the incident, she didn‘t choose to compromise, but since the culprit destroyed all evidence, and the police and neighbors didn‘t like foreigners, do you think you‘re the only one who had to listen to hateful words? Your mother and sister endured the same.”
Maisie ignored her darkened expression.” You had to go through a horrific experience and thought that your mother didn‘t believe you, that she felt guilty because she neglected you, but that was all just your perception.”
“Hah, what do you know?” Maxine chuckled, “Maisie, do you think what you‘re saying will move me? Do you think that me losing means that you won?”
She laughed hysterically. “You‘re so pathetic. Do you think you can save me? You think that the poor little girl won‘t end up like me
Maxine suddenly stood up, “She‘s going to follow in my footsteps, Maisie. She won‘t thank you for it, hahaha!”
The warden grabbed her while she struggled and screamed. Her bloodshot eyes stared intently at Maisie, who sat calmly on the other side of the glass window–all the hysterics looked even crazier on the other side. The noise on the other side of the receiver only faded when the warden forcefully dragged her out.
After Maisie walked out of prison, the car window parked outside slowly rolled down, revealing half of Nolan‘s handsome face.
