Mark’s brows furrowed with worry as he approached his wife. “Tell me what? Who was this strange lady, and why didn’t you mention it before?”
Sarah took a deep breath, her gaze shifting between her husband and her daughter. “I didn’t want to upset you, but today, while I was at work, a woman came to our door. She was a complete stranger, and she asked about you, Mark.”
Mark’s concern deepened, and he exchanged a concerned look with Lily before turning back to his wife. “What did she want? Did she say why she was looking for me?”
Sarah nodded, her eyes filled with a mixture of fear and uncertainty. “She mentioned that she needed to talk to you about something significant that happened in the past.”
Mark’s mind raced as he tried to think of who this woman might be and what the mysterious matter from his past could entail. The little family huddled together, the aroma of pizza and the warmth of their home suddenly overshadowed by the unexpected arrival of a stranger from the past.
