Chapter 11

Half an hour later, Sean drove them and arrived at grandpa’s place. 

 Mr. Riddle Sr. and his three sons- and daughters-in-law had already arrived. When they saw them entering, the second daughter-in-law, Karen, could not help but smile triumphantly. “Daniel, Gloria, have you two been very busy lately? You are making us wait.” 

“I am sorry, Karen. The traffic was a little bad today.” Gloria squeezed a smile. She would endure it all for Nicole’s sake. 

Nicole studied Karen with a frosty face and did not greet her. 

When Karen’s eyes met hers, Karen felt a chill run up her spine. Nicole was just a brat. What was she afraid of? 

Thinking of this, she scoffed and said, “So this is your child that had gone missing for years? She indeed looks a bit like her brothers. But have you done the DNA test? Don’t mix up again this time.” 

Hearing Karen open the old wounds of his parents, Sean frowned and said, “Aunt, what you said is a bit too much.” 

Leaving Nicole wandering outside all these years was Gloria’s deepest pain. So what Karen did was tantamount to adding salt to injury. 

“Sean.” Daniel shook his head at him, motioning him not to speak. 

Gloria put up with Karen’s jabs and let out a gentle smile. “Thank you for the reminder, Karen. But this time the police have compared the DNAs, and Nicole is our family member.” 

Gloria was timid, but her hand holding Nicole’s hand was powerful and made Nicole feel warm.
