Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 108
“Well, it’s fine. He must have a lot of things to settle, being the owner of such a huge company. It’s fine as long as you’re here.”
“Thank you for your understanding. Let’s go.”
Fia walked into the main hall and saw the Lawsons standing on either sides of the hall, sobbing.
When they saw her come in, all of them looked at her with anger.
Even if she did grow up in the household, her three aunts and their children didn’t like her because of her identity.
She didn’t believe that she had it tough as her uncles and grandma all loved her.
However, her grandma’s death made even her three uncles resent her somewhat.
The Lawson household… Was not a place she could come to anymore.
She held the carnation in her hands as she walked toward the coffin. She knelt on the floor directly, ignoring the cushion.
She put the carnation on the ground as she clasped her hands before the coffin respectfully and her head hung low.
“Grandma, thank you for all the years of love that you gave me. I am unable to repay you for it all. I’m sorry.”
‘But I will take the project back for you!”
As her tears rolled, she stood up with the carnations in hand.
Wallace walked over and led her to the side.
He then whispered, “Don’t blame them for not being willing to talk to you. All of them are blaming you for causing your grandma’s passing in court because of your lawsuit with Conrad.”
Fia nodded. “It was my fault for not taking good care of her. I didn’t think it through. It’s only normal for you to blame me.”
Wallace patted her shoulders and said, “Accompany your grandma on her last journey.”
The Lawsons had their own burial grounds out in the countryside. They were going to bury Thea.
Fia followed the convoy to the cemetery and sat in the last car. She didn’t want the Lawsons to see her and make them unhappy.
When they were at the cemetery, she walked at the back with her vase of carnations.
Only when everyone was done did she walk over to the tombstone.
She then saw her and her mother’s names had been etched in the most unnoticeable location.
She finally cried as she knelt in front of Thea’s grave and put down the vase of flowers.
“Grandma, don’t go too quickly. Wait for my mom.
“I can’t do much, but I’ll live on. I won’t make you and Mom worry. So… I can only accompany you for a bit longer. So please wait for my mom, alright? So you can accompany her.”
She sat by the tombstone for a while after her prayer. She was going to leave once she was done.
She turned around and saw her three uncles.
The three of them looked at her helplessly.
Fia smiled and walked over.
“Uncle Wallace, Uncle Douglas, Uncle Hector. You’re waiting for me?”
“There’s something that we need to talk to you about.” Wallace started but didn’t know how to continue.
Douglas and Hector pushed him and said, “Wallace, just say it. Otherwise, they’re going to start shouting again.
Fia knew they were talking about her three aunts.
“Don’t worry, uncle. I won’t take any of the Lawsons‘ inheritance.”
“Don’t say something like that, Fia. Your grandma loves you. Despite leaving us early, she had already reserved something for you.
Wallace then took out a document. “This is a shop belonging to your grandma. It’s now yours.”
Douglas also took out another document. “This is a studio apartment that your grandma left you too. It’s located in the center of the city.”
And finally, Hector took out a small box. “These are some gold accessories that your grandma left for your and your children. So, you must work hard and have Conrad’s child soon.”
Fia frowned and said, “Thank you, uncle. But I can’t take these.”
“Fia, I know that you’re upset with us drawing our distance. However, we all have our own families. We need to center our efforts on them,” Douglas said nervously.
Hector then sighed and said, “Just take it. That way, we’ll feel better too.”
There were tears in Fia’s eyes as she shook her head.
“No need. I’m an adult now. I can earn them myself in the future. I know that you still love me, uncle. But I don’t want to take them and make you fight with your wives.”
