She went ahead to open the door and was too surprise to see the 3 set of men standing at the door.
She recognised one of them very very well.
She staggered back on seeing them, her eyes and mouth open wide not knowing what to say already drawning in the sea of surprise.
Edward: nikky! Nikky: Edward.

Nevertheless, nikky said in tears.

They broke the hug by the fainting voice of their father.

– Nikkei: dad he is very much alive, he isn’t the one that got burnt!

They got to realise that he was not really a ghost so they were very happy for that.
Infact, Johnson ordered the cook in the house to prepare a very delicious meal for them to celebrate the resurrection of his son which they thought was dead.
Nikky did not even think of moving away from Edward.
Even when he sat down waiting for the meal, she still sat beside him and keep makeing stories with him.
