Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 107
“I’m sorry.” Conrad apologized again as he let go of Fia’s hand before turning and leaving.
He didn’t know what happened either. It felt like he was being possessed. He didn’t even know what happened anymore.
Fia lied back in the bed as she gasped for air like a fish out of water.
She wanted to cry, but she felt that crying meant humiliation and she refused to be humiliated further.
She wanted to scream, to curse, but she was out of strength.
She felt like she was going crazy.
She once again fell into a deep sleep and only her ringtone woke her up in the evening.
She was too tired to see who called.
Wallace, who was on the other end of the call, was silent for about two seconds. “Fia? It’s me, Uncle Wallace.”
Fia sat up and held her phone tightly.
“What is it, uncle?”
“You haven’t told your mom about your grandma, right?”
“Yes, I haven’t.”
“Good girl. Come to your grandma’s funeral tomorrow with Conrad.”
Fia was worried that the Lawsons wouldn’t allow her to participate in her grandmother’s funeral procession.
That she would have to wait until after her grandma was already buried, until they were all gone, to only then be able to visit her grave.
She was somewhat uplifted that her uncle would allow her to attend.
However, she wasn’t planning to tell Conrad.
The next day, Fia went to visit her mother at the hospital after breakfast.
“Mom, I’m going to the Lawsons to visit Grandma. I’ll accompany you again later.”
There was a hint of pain in Echo’s eyes as she held Fia’s hand and said, “Fia, tell your grandma not to worry too much about you. You’re all grown up now. You can protect yourself.”
“Okay.” Fia did her best to smile calmly.
Looking at her mother getting weaker day by day, she didn’t dare to tell her about Thea’s passing.
“Fia.” Echo coughed as she struggled to sit up. She then pointed at the carnations in the vase by her bedside table.
“Take these for your grandma. I can’t visit her anymore like this, so speak to her more and give her the flowers.”
“Alright,” Fia said. She almost broke into tears.
She held the vase with the carnations and left the ward.
She didn’t know that as soon as she left, her mother began to tear up.
“Mom… Fia’s having it tough…” Echo looked out the window with faith on her face. “Please protect her. “And Mom, just wait for me, okay? Once I’ve arranged everything for Fia, I’ll go to you.
Her bony hands were clasped together as she prayed toward the direction of the window.
The Lawsons‘ family home was an old estate that was built during the Edwardian era. Even its gate still retained some of its grace of that time.
Fia got down from the cab and looked at all the funeral decorations of black and white. Sadness washed over her entire being.
She plucked a carnation from her hand and put it in her suit’s pocket as she walked into the Lawson’s family home.
“Ms. Fia.” An old servant of the Lawsons bowed to her.
She nodded and held the flowers in her arms tightly.
There was a lot of crying from the great hall as a priest walked around the coffin muttering something.
When Wallace saw Fia arrive, he quickly came out of the main hall.
“Fia, why are you alone? Where’s Conrad?”
Fia smiled at her uncle helplessly and said, “I don’t know.”
He didn’t go home last night, so he should be with Esme. However, she couldn’t tell her uncle that openly.
