Chapter 16

Maisie did not say a word. 


‘They poured all their thoughts to get me home for dinner. They even invited Nolan here and are now insisting on wanting me to stay for dinner. Then I must stay here to see what this mother-and-daughter pain plan to do.’

She then raised her head and chuckled. “Okay, then I’ll stay here for dinner.”

Willow and Leila did not expect she would agree, but everything was going according to their plan.

Maisie only bowed her head and ate without talking during the entire meal. Stephen and Leila were almost silent throughout the dinner, probably because of Nolan’s presence.

Nolan did not eat much. He had wanted to refuse Willow’s invitation when she asked him to accompany her back to the Vanderbilt manor, but Maisie was mentioned.

Since Willow had said that Maisie was the one who invited him to the Vanderbilt manor, he would have to see what Maisie had up her sleeves.

“Zee, how have you been all these years?”

That was probably the only time when Stephen would think of showing care for this daughter.

Maisie did not even raise her eyelids. “I did have a great time, thanks to you.”

A hint of embarrassment stagnated on Stephen’s face for a moment.

Leila hinted to Willow with her gaze. Only then did Willow begin to express herself in front of her father. She fetched some food into Nolan’s bowl. “Nolan, you should have more.”
