*Complaisant: inclined or disposed to please; agreeable or gracious
Maisy was a complaisant woman, she was always putting others first and helping out around the community. She didn’t have a selfish bone in her body, all her neighbours loved her and thought she was a joy to be around. But Miranda, her daughter, knew the truth- there’s always something more to why somebody is complaisant.
Miranda knew what happened behind closed doors, she knew her mother had a wicked side and a quick temper when nobody was looking. However its not often that children like Miranda manage to speak up, so of course it remained that only Miranda knew. Nobody else ever had a clue that Maisy was anything but complaisant behind closed doors.
