Obviously, Becky was panicked when she heard that Elizabeth didn’t want money.
After she returning from abroad, Becky found that Max’s attitude toward Elizabeth was
Max hadn’t known about Elizabeth’s pregnancy. If he knew…
Becky was not sure what choice Max would make.
Her instinct even told her that Max wouldn’t give up on Elizabeth easily if he knew she was pregnant.
Therefore, Becky forced a smile and tried to console Elizabeth.
“Elizabeth, are you worried about what others will say about you? Take it easy, this money belongs to me, and no one else knows. I care about you. After all, your current situation…”
“Miss Gabriel.” Elizabeth sighed softly. “Thank you for your concern. My family went bankrupt, but I have worked hard for the past two years. Although I’m not as rich before, I can support myself and…”
Elizabeth paused and gave a faint smile. “I can support myself. You helped me a lot before, and I can’t take your money anymore.”
“It’s okay. I give you the money of my free will.”
“Miss Gabriel, I can’t take your money.”
Elizabeth put the envelope in Becky’s hand and then stepped back to keep a distance
It dawned on Becky. Elizabeth suddenly stepped back and said those words.
Elizabeth refused to take the money and paused when she was talking just now.
Although Elizabeth didn’t say it clearly, Becky heard it well.
Did Elizabeth mean she had no problem supporting herself and the baby? Did that mean she was going to give birth to the baby?
Thinking of this possibility, Becky’s face turned pale instantly.
Although she was famous for her elegance, Becky could no longer keep the smile on her lips. She said with cold eyes, “Are you serious?”
Elizabeth raised her eyes.
Becky was angry about it.
But that wouldn’t affect Elizabeth’s decision.
Elizabeth pursed her lips and nodded.
“I’m sorry. I made
I made up my mind before you came.”
Hearing this, Becky couldn’t help but sneer.
“Why? I don’t understand the point of doing this,”
Her words surprised Elizabeth. A hint of puzzle was flashing across her eyes, Elizabeth relaxed soon. Things had come to this stage, and it was not surprising that Becky felt
“Maybe it is pointless to you, but this is my own body, so it’s up to me to decide.”
“You…” Becky didn’t know what to say and went up to hold Elizabeth’s shoulders. “Why don’t you think it over, Elizabeth? I’m not suspecting you or picking on you, but you must be aware of the consequences before doing something.”
“I know, and I’ve thought about it.”
Elizabeth gazed at Becky unblinkingly and repeated, “I’ve decided.’
Becky loosened her grip on Elizabeth’s shoulders under her firm gaze.
Ultimately, she lowered her eyes weakly and turned to leave the small garden, quickening her pace and losing her composure.
Elizabeth glanced at the check envelope that had fallen to the ground and smiled self-mockingly, stooping to pick it up.
When Elizabeth returned to the living room, the maid told her that Becky had left. Elizabeth had intended to return the envelope to Becky, but she had to drop the idea for
She wouldn’t take the money.
Since Becky didn’t take it away, Elizabeth would give the check to Max when he came back and ask him to return it to Becky.
Elizabeth quickly made a decision.
As Elizabeth went upstairs and returned to the room, she found she felt much better. It seemed something that had been bothering her had been solved.
This relief began after she decided to keep the baby.
Elizabeth couldn’t help reaching out and touching her lower abdomen, giving a vague
From now on, she would have one more family in the world.
She thought, “Baby, I’ll treat you well even if I’m a single mother.”
When Elizabeth packed up, she was wondering if Max would come back. Suddenly, she
heard the gate opening.
She went to the window and took a look.
A beam of headlights illuminated the gate, and Elizabeth tightened her grip on the
It was Max’s car.
He came back at the right time. She would make it clear to him tonight.
After making the decision, Elizabeth went back to the room and continued to pack up.
She didn’t have many things. Elizabeth didn’t like shopping.
She had thought it would be easy to pack, but she found her life and habits had been integrated into every corner of the room in the past two years when she started the packing.
There were all kinds of small things in the wardrobe, on the bed, on the dressing table,
and even on the sofa and coffee table as well as on the shelves.
It was difficult to pack them all.
In the end, Elizabeth simply packed her clothes and daily necessities.
Elizabeth paused when she heard the doorknob turning. Following that, she heard
She didn’t look back.
She knew Max had helped her a lot, and she might not be able to return his favor for the rest of her life. No matter how mad she was, she shouldn’t turn a cold shoulder to him.
However, Elizabeth was embarrassed by the hints given by Max and Becky.
Elizabeth could feel the footsteps getting closer and closer.
Suddenly, the footsteps stopped.
Elizabeth took a deep breath and suppressed her emotions.
She had to face what she should face.
to Max frowned and looked at the messy room before him, almost thinking he had
the wrong place.
Two light-colored suitcases were placed beside the bed. One of them had been packed, and the other was about to be full. The wardrobe was open, and Elizabeth’s clothes were half gone.
For a moment, Max thought she had packed up because she would take annual leave and
go on vacation.
When he saw the half-empty wardrobe, Max frowned.
“What are you doing?”
Elizabeth had been turning her back to him. She turned around and opened the drawer, handing an envelope to him.
Max didn’t take it and instead asked, “What is it?”
Elizabeth said lightly, “Checks.”
“Checks?” Max fixed his eyes on her. “What do you mean?”
“There are three checks for six million from you and one check for one million from Miss Gabriel.”
When he heard there were six million given by him in the envelope, Max’s first reaction was to ask, “Why didn’t you spend it?”
How long had he given her the checks? Had she been saving them?
No, that was not the point.
“Why is there a check from Becky?”
Elizabeth wanted to ask him why. Why did he have to tell Becky about her pregnancy?
After two years of marriage, even if he didn’t love her, couldn’t he treat her as a friend?
But Max didn’t even consider her feelings.
However, Elizabeth didn’t answer his question. She said coldly, “From tonight on, I’ll move to the guest room upstairs. I’ll sign the divorce agreement and leave after Grandma has surgery.”
