Chapter 39

“You knew my mother?”

Kimberly couldn’t believe that this stranger knew her mother. How is that even possible? She wondered, but immediately shook off that thought. She wanted to know more about her mom from someone else other than her dad, who only told her how much her mom loved her and how she would’ve loved to see her grow into the woman she is today.

“Your mother?” Alan asked, sounding even more surprised this time.

“Y-yes. She was my mother.” Kimberly quietly replied, her brows furrowed in confusion.

“You’re trying to tell me that you’re not in any way Hailey?”

She nodded in reply this time, not trusting her voice as she was now aware that this stranger mistook her for her mom because she was her spitting image from head to toe.

Kimberly had lived with that pain everyday she lived with her dad, knowing she was the reason her dad had to go through the torture of being reminded of the woman he loved each and everyday, preventing him from moving on.

Roy was confused, this wasn’t how he expected their meeting to turn out. How did hell did his uncle know Kimberly’s mom, Hailey? That name rings a bell, but he wasn’t completely sure where he heard it.

“Can you tell me what you know about my mom… please?” Kimberly timidly asked the shocked stranger.

“O-oh, s-sure. What would you like to know about her?” Alan stuttered out of his shocked state.

“Whatever you know would be fine.”

“Alright, before we start with the story telling, I’ll make us some coffee so we can have it with the cookies I’ve made… I know you two must be starving.” Christine interrupted them, gesturing at Roy and Kimberly who had barely had any proper meal for days.

“Christine, is this where you’ve been coming to for the past weeks?” Alan asked, only noticing his mate’s presence now.

“Yes. Roy needed my help.”

“And you didn’t think it was necessary to tell me about it?”

“It’s my fault, uncle. I asked her to keep it a secret.” Roy cut in before his uncle will get mad at his mate.

“And you..” Alan continued, pointing his finger at Roy.

“you have to explain everything to me from the very beginning.”

Roy was trying to crying to control his wolf who was slowly getting angry for being spoken to in that manner by someone of a lower rank because this was his uncle whom he loved so much and he understood why he was upset. This is the first time he was keeping something this important from him.

“I’m sorry.” He replied through gritted teeth.

Alan immediately got the hint that Roy’s was upset, so he didn’t say anything more.

Kimberly just watched between them, amazed at how they suddenly acted like she wasn’t even present.

“Um, are we still having coffee?” Kimberly then suddenly asked, successfully bringing them back to the present.

“S-sure. Can you give me a hand with the coffee?” Christine replied with a smile to ease the tension a bit.

Kimberly nodded and stole a glance at Roy, who was already staring back at her.copy right hot novel pub
