“Let me see her first then you’ll know my reasons”she said looking at Charlie. “Fine. I’ll take you there. But I don’t want her to misunderstand me because I didn’t tell her when I was coming here.”Charlie said. “It’s OK. I’ll explain that to her”Mrs Henry said.
They both went out of the room to meet Justin. He quickly rose on his feet when he saw them. He saw the look on their faces were not looking good.
“Mum what’s wrong?”he asked looking at both of them. “It’s nothing. I need to go somewhere with Charlie. You can just hang out with your friends I’ll be back soon”Mrs Henry said picking her car key from the center table. Justin looked at Charlie wondering where she’s taking her. “Why? Where are you guys leaving to?”he asked Charlie. “Don’t worry. It’s nothing serious”Charlie said looking at him.
At Mr Davids building.
Mr and Mrs David left for work as usual. While Hanna went out hanging around with her friends since it’s weekend.
When Mrs Henry and Charlie arrived at the building, madam Susan was surprise to see them both together.
They sat down in the living room while madam Susan get Mrs Henry some refreshment.
She sat down on the couch opposite to them. “Why are you here ma’am”madam Susan asked looking at Mrs Henry. Charlie was also eager to hear her reason of following her home.
“Why did you lie to me?”that was the first statement that came out of her mouth. Charlie looked at her and so did madam Susan.
“I never lied to you about anything”madam Susan replied looking at her strangely. “You did. I never knew you could do that. I want to know everything that happened, explain why you took her.”mrs Henry said looking at her. Charlie looked at madam Susan wondering who Mrs Henry is talking about. “ its.. I can’t understand you ma’am”madam Susan stammered sounding guilty. “I did check everything about Charlie and found out she’s the Sarah we’ve been searching for eleven years ago. And you lied she’s your brother’s daughter. Why do you have to do that? Why?”Mrs Henry said looking at her. Charlie was shocked to hear this, and to hear madam Susan was not her biological mother. She stared at madam Susan expecting her to say it’s a lie. She’s her mother. “Mum say something to this. Is that true?”she said feeling more impatient.
Madam Susan’s expression changed and she was staring at Charlie with pity in her eyes.
“Charlie I think it’s time to reveal everything to you now”she said looking at her. Charlie shook her head negatively looking sad and betrayed. “So, you mean she’s right? You not my biological mother? How is not that possible? Why”Charlie said with tears forming in her eyes. “It’s true Charlie. I think the truth can’t be hidden forever. You’re not my biological daughter.”she said looking sad. “Can you explain yourself better? How do you ended up with your boss daughter? And why do you have to keep her from her family for the past eleven years”Mrs henry asked looking at her.
“It’s not that I intentionally did it. It’s a long story then. This is how it goes…”
