“Weren't you wearing it this morning and staunchly refused to return it to Jonathan? Don't you remember?” Josephine couldn't help feeling a tad suspicious at the panicked expression on Margaret's face.
“Oh, you're referring to that watch?” It was as though something suddenly occurred to Margaret. “I took it off this morning before leaving home and placed it on the table!”
“You placed it on the table?” Josephine swept a gaze over the table in bewilderment, but there was only an empty box there.
Huh? There's no watch there.
Upon glimpsing the dubious look in her eyes, Margaret uneasily changed her tune. “Perhaps I took it off when I took a shower but forgot where I put it. I'll look for it when I'm free.”
“You're not lying to me, are you, Mom?” Josephine regarded her skeptically.
