Originally, Megan felt that Elizabeth’s reaction was too calm, so something must be wrong.
But after hearing Becky’s name, Megan seemed to be frozen, feeling speechless.
It took a long time for her to react.
“I… I thought she won’t come back.”
For a while, neither of them spoke.
When the Blaine Family was not bankrupt, Megan, as Elizabeth’s best friend, also followed Elizabeth in the upper-class circle for a long time. She naturally knew that everyone liked to talk about how Becky saved
It was a good match since the two were both good-looking.
But as Elizabeth’s best friend, Megan still felt sorry for her friend.
It was a pity that there were too many unrequited crushes in this world.
Megan bit her lower lip, defending her friend.
“Actually, so what if she comes back at this time? If I were you, I wouldn’t let him go. Anyway, she and Max
are not boyfriend and girlfriend, not to mention that you two are married and have a child now. I don’t believe
that Max will let you get an abortion!”
Elizabeth, who had been silent all this time, raised her head, “Then you may not know Max well.”
Hearing this, Megan’s eyes widened in disbelief, “What do you mean? Did he ask you to get an abortion?”
Elizabeth said, “He will.”
Megan replied, “Didn’t you tell him yet? How are you so sure he will?”
Elizabeth pursed her lower lip, “I beat around the bush.”
“Beat around the bush?” Megan instantly got impatience, “What’s the meaning of that? How can it be the same as asking him directly? Why don’t you tell him now that you are pregnant and see how he reacts?”
Elizabeth didn’t say anything.
Seeing that she didn’t speak, Megan said again, “You don’t seem to dare to ask him, so is it because you are afraid? Please, I guarantee that if Max finds out that you are pregnant, he will never let you have an abortion. Do you believe it?”
Elizabeth was silent for a moment and shook his head, “It’s not necessary.”
After finishing speaking, Elizabeth took her bag and got up, “Let’s go. I’ll take care of the bill.”
Before Megan could react, Elizabeth had already gone to the waiter.
Megan was so angry, but she had no choice but to grab her bag and follow out.

After leaving the coffee shop, Megan followed Elizabeth, and seeing that Elizabeth still had no intention of speaking, Megan couldn’t help but grab Elizabeth.
Elizabeth stood still and looked at Megan steadily.
“Face the truth and trust me once, okay? It’s not a trivial matter at all, but if you can take back your liking for him after so many years, I won’t persuade you right now. But you like him, don’t you? Happiness is in your
“I…” Elizabeth was a little hesitant after hearing what Megan said.
Seeing her hesitation, Megan asked, “Okay, I’ll ask you a few questions, and you just answer me.”
“The matter of pregnancy, as the months increasing, will definitely be discovered one day, right?”
“Then are you afraid of being discovered?”
Elizabeth thought for a while and nodded again.
“That’s right. You are afraid of being discovered, and you don’t intend to tell Max, so you will definitely find a
chance to get an abortion later.”
No. It was not like that.
She just hadn’t figured it out yet.
“Since you’ve prepared for the worst, what do you have to be afraid of? Just tell him. The worst situation will
be the same as what I said, isn’t it?”
“But,” Elizabeth’s pink lips trembled slightly, and her eyelashes shook slightly, “If I don’t tell him, maybe we will
still be friends in the future, but if I tell him…”
Hearing this, Megan fell silent.
It was she who underestimated her friend’s feelings for Max.
After a long time, Megan sighed softly, “Elizabeth, I know you like him, but have you ever thought about what’s the point of being friends if you can’t be together? And don’t you want to try? Don’t you want to know what kind of feelings he has for you? He treats you so well. Anyway, I don’t believe he has no feelings for you.”
Yeah, Max was really nice to Elizabeth.
But that was just a deal.
If Max’s grandma didn’t like her and happened to be sick, the two of them would never have gotten married.
His feelings for her were like an ordinary childhood friend.
her were like a

Seeing that Elizabeth was still hesitant, Megan knew that it was useless to persuade her.
“Anyway, I’ve said everything I should say. You can think about it yourself. After all, you are the one who makes the final decision. I can’t say anything more.”
Before leaving, Megan still couldn’t hold back herself and ran over to Elizabeth before she got into the car. “Elizabeth, happiness is something you have to fight for yourself. Do you understand?”
Although Elizabeth was still a little confused, Elizabeth smiled sincerely, reached out, and pinched Megan’s face, “I know. I will think about it carefully.”
“Well, then you go back and remember to call me if you need anything.”
As soon as Elizabeth returned to the Hart family, Lincoln greeted her worriedly.
“Ma’am, where have you been? Why are you running around when you are sick? What if something happens?”
Lincoln’s concern warmed Elizabeth’s heart, “I’m fine.”
“That’s good.” Lincoln looked her over from head to toe, and he was relieved to be sure that Elizabeth was
“Ma’am, please go upstairs and rest.”
Elizabeth went upstairs and returned to the room.
After the door was closed, the surroundings became quiet. When she was alone in the room, all she could think about was the words that her friend Megan said.
Happiness was something she had to fight for herself.
In fact, she believed in this sentence. If she liked someone, she should say it out loud and fight for it.
She had done that before.
That was why she wanted to confess her feeling.
But when she was about to confess, she heard Max say that the place beside him would be reserved for Becky forever.
She understood the concept of forever, and she also knew that Max was the kind of person who followed his
Elizabeth gripped her phone tightly.

Since Megan’s suggestion was put forward, the greed in her heart was like a tree vine finding its attachment, absorbing the nutrients in the soil hard and growing rapidly upwards.
Elizabeth actually really wanted to listen to Megan’s words and give it a try.
But if she told Max face to face, she would definitely not have the courage.
Perhaps, she could choose to send a message to Max.
He would know it after seeing the text message.
After this idea came out, Elizabeth’s heart beat wildly as if she was stimulated by something.
Her hand holding the phone also began to tremble.
When unlocking with fingerprints, she failed several times and finally entered the password to enter.
Elizabeth clicked on Max’s number.
It might be because of fear, she usually communicated with Max on WhatsApp, but now she clicked on text
When she was about to type, Elizabeth became confused again, thinking about what she should say to him.
She stared blankly at the phone for a long time and finally decided to be more direct.
As Megan said, she had already prepared for the worst, so what was there to be afraid of?
She edited the text message.
“I am pregnant.”
Then she closed her eyes and hit send.
