Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 100
Conrad could feel another headache coming. He stared at Fia saying, “No matter what, you have to apologize to Esme about what happened to her last night.”
Fla tightened her fists and asked coldly, “If I don’t?”
“Then I’m going to hold you responsible for this as well!”
“Hold me responsible? Did I bite her? Or did I slice her?!”
“Ah! Conrad, I’m so scared!” Esme screamed and held Conrad’s arm again, screaming as loudly as she could.
Fia’s eardrums were hurting from the screaming.
Jason frowned and started to get rid of the two. “Please leave, both of you.”
Conrad was worried about Esme as well. He took her in his arms and quickly left to look for a doctor.
Fia’s tensed body relaxed. Even when she sat on the bed, all she could do was look down as her tears blurred her vision.
“There’s something that I forgot to tell you.”
Jason then told her about it without her asking.
“That lady was admitted in the middle of the night with wounds all over her body. She almost jumped down from the hospital’s balcony because she lost control of her emotions.”
Fia trembled and tried to persuade herself, “She does that every time. Last time, she purposely jumped off her family home’s balcony to injure her legs.”
“On the tenth floor. One floor above you.”
Fla looked out from her room’s balcony, stunned.
Did something happen last night?
Did Victor really have someone do something to her?
But Eileen and she didn’t ask him to do anything.
Jason then said slowly, “She’s hiding all her injuries under the clothing.”
Fia suddenly remembered that Esme loved to wear dresses. She would wear a dress even when she was admitted to a hospital before this. She would never wear a hospital gown.
But when she came by, she was wearing a large and loose hospital gown.
“What kind of injury?”
“Sexual assault.” Jason tried to lower his voice, worried that he might scare her.
“Impossible!” Fia retorted. “Where’s my phone?”
Jason then took out her phone from her purse.
She quickly called Eileen.
“Eileen, yesterday, Esme…”
Before she could even finish, Eileen’s panicky voice came from the other side.
“Fia, can you please talk with Conrad?!
“My boss really didn’t tell his people to do anything to Esme! He simply told them to send Conrad back before going home.”
Fia was stunned.
The tears in her eyes finally rolled down.
It was not because of sadness. Not because of fear. But because of confusion.
She still couldn’t free herself from Eileen’s words for several minutes after she hung up.
“Fia, I believe that this has nothing to do with you.” Jason tried to console her.
Fia shook her head and touched her belly.
“Doctor, please leave. I want to be alone for a while.”
“Come find me anytime.”
She nodded, quietly lying down on the bed and pulling the blanket over herself.
She hated her so much. But when she heard Eileen’s words, she didn’t feel happy at all.
She wasn’t sure if it was because of Eileen’s wailing or because of her pity toward another woman.
She suddenly wanted to see Esme.
She didn’t know why, but she simply wanted to see her.
When she was little and had no dad, everyone her age looked down on her and didn’t want to play with her.
Although Esme was six years older than her, she would take care of her and would share snacks and toys with her.
When did their relationship begin to change?
That year, she had just gotten into second grade. She went to Grandpa Maxwell’s party and saw Conrad being bullied.
She dragged Esme along to help, and their relationship began to change.
But now, it was no longer something as simple as their relationship changing.
