“Or, are you actually not confident in him?”
Elizabeth said with a faint smile, “I’m not worried about my current situation. What are you worried about?”
Seeing that she was still standing there, Elizabeth had no choice but to say, “Don’t worry. Grandma will have an operation in a few days. If you bear with it, you will soon get what you want. As long as Grandma’s operation is successful, I will leave and not come back for five years.”
After Elizabeth’s reminder, Becky gradually calmed down.
Yes, there were only a few days left. No matter what happened now, it would be over in a few days.
The farce between Elizabeth and Max would also come to an end.
At that time, she would not have been as timid as she was now.
“Okay, then I will trust you for the time being, and I hope that you can do what you say.’
After Becky left, the room became quiet.
Elizabeth lowered her gaze and gently stroked her lower abdomen with her hands.
“Baby, let’s wish everything goes well with Mommy. When I take you to live abroad, your grandpa will be there. Your grandpa will definitely like you very much.”
Charles called Elizabeth back after that day.
But Charles was very busy now. When he answered the phone, there were several people talking beside him. So, Elizabeth didn’t tell Charles about her affairs.
So in the end, the father and daughter just greeted one another in a hurry and then hung up.
The day before Madam Hart’s surgery happened to be on the weekend. Elizabeth and Max stayed with her in the nursing home
Elizabeth was worried that Madam Hart would be nervous about the operation, so she specially bought some fun gadgets for her to make her happy, and told her some interesting things encountered in the company, as well as those wonderful customer experiences, which made Madam Hart laugh heartily.
When the two of them were talking, Max was watching at the side.
At first, he had no expression on his face, but later he was infected by the laughter of Elizabeth and Madam Hart, and a faint
smile appeared on his face.
Everything was so peaceful at this moment.
The doctor explained the precautions in advance. Since the operation would be performed tomorrow, Elizabeth suggested, “Grandma, why don’t I stay and sleep with you at night? If you are nervous and can’t fall asleep, I can count sheep with you.”
“No, no.” Madam Hart waved her hand and said, “I’m no longer a child, so I don’t need to be accompanied. You and Max go back to rest together and come back tomorrow.”
Madam Hart did not agree with Elizabeth to stay.
In the end, it was Max who grabbed Elizabeth’s arm and said slowly, “Since Grandma disagrees, we’ll come over early
“That’s right. You go back quickly. It’s getting late. Don’t interfere with my rest here.”
“Okay…” Elizabeth could only compromise in the end and then stepped forward to hug Madam Hart. “Grandma, sleep peacefully at night, and we will come over tomorrow morning.”
“Okay, I will remember that.” Madam Hart reached out and pinched the tip of Elizabeth’s nose. “You keep nagging.”
In the end, Elizabeth and Max left together.
On the way back, Elizabeth wanted to speak several times, but since the driver was still there, she could only give up.
Max didn’t notice that she was hesitating to speak as he was chatting with Elizabeth about tomorrow’s precautions.
His voice was clear, and his tone was calm and domineering.
Elizabeth listened and occasionally responded.
When they got home and after the driver left, the two returned to the room. Max took off his suit jacket and said to Elizabeth in a deep voice, “Go take a shower first and then go to bed early.”
Elizabeth didn’t refuse either. When she turned around to get a change of clothes, she thought about it and finally turned
around and asked.
“I have a question for you.”
Max had already taken off his jacket and was taking off his tie at the moment. When he heard this, he stopped and stared at her with dark pupils.
“Are we going to get the divorce certificate tomorrow before Grandma’s surgery, or after her surgery is over?”
As soon as she said that, Elizabeth felt Max’s aura suddenly become cold.
Immediately afterwards, he stared at her with a terrifying and sharp gaze.
Such a look…
Elizabeth was inexplicably terrified by his stare, and a chill appeared on her back. She suddenly realized that this question
should not be asked at this time.
After all, Grandma was going to have an operation tomorrow, so Max’s mood was probably not stable right now.
After figuring it out, Elizabeth apologized to him.
“Sorry, I shouldn’t have mentioned it at this time. I’d better wait until Grandma’s operation is finished. Goodnight.”
After finishing speaking, Elizabeth turned to leave, but Max stepped forward to block her way, looked at her with a dark face
and asked, “You really want to get a divorce tomorrow, don’t you?”
Elizabeth replied, “That’s not it. I just…”
“As you wish.”
Elizabeth was stunned and stared at him blankly.
Max’s tone was extremely cold.
“Let’s go to the City Clerk’s Office when it opens tomorrow.”
After speaking, Max stopped confronting her and turned around to enter the bathroom.
Elizabeth was speechless.
He initially told her to use the bathroom first.
The door of the bathroom was slammed violently, and there was a loud noise before silence returned after a while.
Elizabeth stood quietly for a moment with a lowered gaze. She then turned around and went to the safe to look for their marriage certificates.
The two marriage certificates were well-kept as they looked extremely brand new.
Elizabeth suddenly recalled the day when she and Max registered their marriage.
When the two of them took pictures together, she was actually very nervous, and she looked awkward when facing the camera.
The photographer took a few photos, but they were not very good. The photographer then said to her, “Miss, relax a bit. You are taking wedding photos, so be happy and smile.”
After being told by the photographer, Elizabeth became even more nervous, and her whole body was so stiff.
It was only until one hand held her.
Elizabeth subconsciously looked at the person beside her, trying to break free with her hands at the same time.
“Why are you nervous? I can’t even touch you?”
With a smile, Max re-clutched her hand that was about to break free and then clasped her fingers together.
Feeling that the temperature of his ten fingers was transmitted clearly through the knuckles, Elizabeth stopped moving and
stood there in a daze.
Later, she heard Max say to the photographer, “Sorry, my wife is a bit shy.”
Elizabeth’s face flushed in an instant, why did he call her his wife before the registration of the marriage?
While thinking about it, Max suddenly leaned down. His warm breath hit her ear, making her feel a little itchy.
“Don’t be nervous. Just listen to the photographer by looking at the camera and smiling. If you continue to be nervous, we won’t be able to get our marriage registration done.”
After speaking, Max suddenly caught sight of her cheeks, which became red because of shyness.
Before he could react, his thin lips had already pressed against her ears. He whispered, “Did
