Ten years later, Mr. Fox increased his wealth four times as he had before. The sixty-year- old rich man married a beautiful girl of 23. They lived in the villa with the best furniture and facilities.
His driver was Daisy’s cousin. He said that Mr. Fox was alcoholic and very bad tempered and his children didn’t like him at all.
One night, Mr. Fox’s son phoned his father’s driver and asked him to take his father to a hospital because he was in critical condition. Daisy’s cousin went to the villa immediately; he found Mr. Fox was lying on the bed holding a bed sheet on his neck. He removed the sheet; there was a cut on his neck which was bleeding. His pulse was weak. The driver took him to a hospital.
The next day, all local newspapers headlines were “The famous millionaire was killed by his young wife”.
One newspaper in an interview with the killer wrote: “That night my husband had some guests, after dinner, he talked about some estate sales with his guests but they failed to reach an agreement, then he drove them back home. When he came back home, he sat on a sofa drinking alcohol. His eyes were red as blood. He wanted to hit me, I took a knife from the kitchen and defend myself and I didn’t know how I hit him on the neck.
But some people said that Mr. Fox’s son was addicted to drugs, he needed money but his father avoided giving him money. He deceived his father’s wife. He had told her to kill his father when he was asleep, then they divided his wealth between them and he would never tell anybody about that.
Although Mr. Fox was a bad man, Daisy and Rose felt sorry for him.
