"You mean to tell me that my husband really isn't dead?" searched Sandy. "Oh, he's dead now, alright. He just did not die in the auto accident along with his friend, like everyone told you that he did," voiced Emily. "Justin was thrown clear of the car when it hit the underlying trees. Justin was not a stupid man! He just made it seem that two bodies died in the explosion that night. I will tell you later how he pulled that one off!" said Emily. "But why did he stage his own death?" interrupted Sandy."In time I will tell you little sister," said Emily softly, almost sorry for something.
