CHAPTER 12 A MESSAGE RECEIVED
- The next day in the morning as soon as the sun rays fell on Marie’s face, it seemed like a very bright morning to her as she opened her eyes to welcome a new day of her life at home with the hope that it was going to be a better day. Suddenly, she remembered that she had to call Jean today, and that thought made her get up from the bed immediately.
- Shadow became alert and barked a little to see sudden movement, but he calmed down just when Marie saw him and gave him her hand to smell it. She pet him before walking into the washroom to freshen up. It was pretty early in the morning that she woke up compared to the time that she would normally wake up during her holidays. That was obviously because of the thought she had in mind about calling the person who she wanted to talk to, and that lucky person was none other than Jean.
- Marie freshened up and walked out of the room while Rebecca was still sleeping. Her parents were sitting in the living room, watching TV, and they were absolutely shocked to see her all dressed up early in the morning because it was not the way that she would be during her holidays. Her step-mom, Delilah, immediately got an idea that something was most certainly up with this little girl, and she was curious to know what it was.
