The Three Little Guardian Angels novel Chapter 16

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.”

Leila smiled immediately and added, “Mr. Goldmann, thank you for taking care of Willie throughout all these years. Willie has always been a thoughtful and well-behaved child, but please show her some patience if she were to give off any shortcomings.”

Maisie lowered her head and almost burst into laughter.

Nolan noticed something, raised his eyes, and looked at Maisie. “Miss Vanderbilt seems to have something to say about this?”

This sentence directed the attention of the other three people on the dining table onto Maisie.

Maisie could not help but respond, “What can I say? But I’m only a little curious. Mr. Goldmann, you’re in your 30s, and the both of you have been together for six years. It should be about time for you to marry our thoughtful and well-behaved girl.”

She emphasized the phrases “thoughtful” and “well-behaved” earnestly as she had seen through the Vanderbilts’ underlying plan.

With this sentence, let alone Leila, even Willow’s expression turned a little rigid.

Not to mention Nolan, who was glaring at Maisie as if he was going to skin her alive.

Willow was afraid that Nolan would overthink, so she added immediately, “Nolan, Zee is just joking around, don’t take it to your heart.”

However, Maisie did not care about the consequences and continued asking, “Willow, how should I put it into words? Mr. Goldmann is your boyfriend, but why do you sound so polite when you’re talking to your boyfriend?”

Willow’s expression changed slightly, and she glared at Maisie furiously.

Seeing that Stephen’s expression was not looking too happy, Leila smoothed things over immediately. “Zee, look at you. What are you talking about? This isn’t a blind date.”
