On a rainy day in September, drizzle moisturized a mountain town and washed clean the stone streets with a refreshing earthy smell in the air. 

An eighteen-year-old girl was on her way to the principal’s office at the only high school in the town center. 

She dressed austerely, but it did not hide the fact that she was beautiful. However, her emotionless eyes made her look sullen and unapproachable. 

“Mr. Barrett, here comes Nicole.” Class teacher, Ms. Mills, led the way for Nicole. 

Nicole Wallace looked at her with some surprise, wondering why Ms. Mills was suddenly so nice to her. Ms. Mills was someone who placed great importance on family background in the selection of class committee members. 

“Let her in.” The principal was equally excited; even his voice was a little trembling. 

Nicole slowly chuckled as soon as she stepped into the principal’s office. 

It turned out to be because of him. 

On the VIP sofa in the principal’s office sat a tall man, dressed in an expensive suit, looking like a social elite, but his facial features were like hers. 

Nicole was studying the man just as the man was studying her. 

He initially planned to go to the hospital with her for a DNA test, but now it seemed unnecessary. 

She was a dead ringer for her mother with the same fine facial features and fair and delicate skin. Her beauty was hard to conceal, even if she dressed casually.
