Chapter 3

Bloodline was something amazing. Even though Gloria had not seen Nicole for many years, she could recognize the girl in front of her to be Nicole, her biological daughter, at first glance. 

Nicole also had this special feeling. So, when Gloria rushed over and hugged her, she did not resist. 

“Oh, Nicole, I have finally found you.” Gloria choked up. “It was my fault for not protecting you well enough. I was to blame for your abduction.” 

So, her abduction was real. 

Nicole used to wonder why her family abandoned her. Was it because she was a daughter? Now knowing that her loved ones cared about her, Nicole’s heart softened, and the look on her face was not as stony as when they first met. 

“Mom, let sis sit down first. We have come all the way home, and she should be tired by now.” Sean reminded Gloria thoughtfully. 

“Right, right. I am just too happy.” Gloria agreed but did not let go of her grip. She sat Nicole down. 

Seeing the entire family surrounding Nicole, a hint of jealousy flashed in the eyes of the girl next to them. But the girl quickly put on a smile. “Nicole must be thirsty. Let me pour you a glass of water.” 

Only then everyone remembered the girl, Norah Riddle. Seeing Norah so thoughtful, Gloria could not help but feel warmhearted. “Norah is so thoughtful.” 

Norah looked a little bashful as she said, “My sister has just returned from the countryside. I should take care of her more.” 

“Thanks.” Nicole shot her a glance as she took the glass from Norah.
