Susan couldn't accept it, so she called Sophia as soon as she returned to her room.
Sophia sighed when she answered the call. "Susan, you're aware of how persistent Evan can be. Just go along with him for now. He'll come to let it go after a while. Take good care of the four kids, and don't tell them about Nicole's passing yet."
"Okay, I'll take good care of them. However, I really don't feel good about leaving a corpse in the house. I'm afraid that it might be a bad omen for the household. Please advise him when you have the time to do so," Susan replied.
"Don't worry, I will," reassured Sophia.
"Sophia, it's getting late. You should get some rest now," Susan urged before ending the call.
After hanging up, Susan let out a deep sigh. The thought of Evan bringing back the urn of ashes made her hair stand on end, as though a gust of cold wind had just blown toward her.
