Marcus saw the look of alarm in Ysabelle’s face. He had been grilling her with questions last night and he knew that she wouldn’t want to be in that same position again. The last thing he would want to do to her was to ask about her family tree history, but her slip-of-the-tongue really did increase his curiosity. If indeed she was not Mehak’s aunt, then how was she related to the Rogratiatto Family?
“Uhmm, you didn’t take your photo Father. Aunt Regina handed it back to me in my room this morning, ” Ysabelle stated, seemingly trying to drop the subject and divert his focus.
And it did, successfully.
‘Goodness! Of all the memories she could revive, she had to pick that one?!’ his mind shouted.
Marcus gently nodded and crossed his arms on his chest. “Yes, I can always get it when I come back in the mansion. During that time, I want for you to give it to me, not anyone else.”
She cleared her throat and intentionally disregarded the cryptic message Marcus was sending her.
