Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 120
“I told you there’s no need to call me Doctor Evans. You can call me by my name, right?”
Fia remembered that Conrad didn’t like her calling Jason by his first name.
She then said, “I’ll call you Evans then.”
Jason’s eyes darkened. He was obviously somewhat disappointed.
“Fine. Think of me as your older brother. If anything happens, feel free to come to me.”
“Sure. Thanks,” Fia said and gave him a smile. She then left after taking her purse.
Jason looked at the woman leaving, his gentle smile slowly disappearing and his eyes becoming somewhat sorrowful.
When he was growing up, his father would always tell him, “Jason, don’t get obsessed about love and relationships. Boys should focus on their career.”
He worked very hard. He was already quite famous in the medical field by the time he was twenty–five. Now, he is already twenty–eight. He held half the stock of this hospital.
Despite his hard work, why would God send him this trial?
Making him fall in love with a married woman?
And forcing him to witness all the pain she had to go through.
Today was the day that the Maxwells congregated for dinner.
Conrad called Fia but his call was refused.
Silas could only look at his boss on the verge of explosion and carefully said, “Boss, the madam should be accompanying Ms. Lawson at the hospital.
“Forget about her! Let’s head to the Maxwell’s family home.”
Silas then said hesitantly, “Sir, you would always take the madam with you to the dinners for the past three years. If you don’t take her along, others will speak behind your back.”
“We’re getting emotionally distant from each other. It doesn’t matter if she goes or not!” Conrad became uncomfortable when he remembered the shirt and necktie that she bought for Jason.
“Call her and ask her where she is and whether she’s going to the family home. If she’s going, pick her up!”
Silas nodded and called Fia through the phone that was connected to his Bluetooth earphone.
Fia was just feeding her mom porridge when she noticed Silas‘ call. She immediately switched off her phone.
She knew that today was the day that they needed to return to the family home for dinner.
But she didn’t want to go back at all!
She just knew her mother–in–law, Beryl, was going to make things difficult for her.
For her child and her own sake, she should avoid them.
“She’s not picking up.”
“Forget about it then!”
The Maxwell family home. He could hear laughter from the inside even when he stood outside. The place was very well decorated.
Before going in, Conrad tried to give Fia a call, but her phone was still switched off.
He let out a sigh and entered the family home.
“Welcome home, Master Conrad!”
When the servant saw him, the servant announced his return. Very quickly, Beryl walked over. She had
another woman next to her.
When Conrad saw the two of them, his expression darkened.
“You told her to come?”
His tone was very unfriendly.
Beryl smiled and whispered, “Don’t worry, son. I know that you haven’t divorced that woman yet and can’t open your relationship publicly.
“I just told everyone that I invited Esme over because I missed her. It has nothing to do with you. No one will think otherwise.”
Conrad was so mad.
That was why his mother could never hold his father’s heart.
“I’m sorry, Conrad. Aunt Beryl said she missed me and I missed her too. So that’s why I came.”
Esme said in a pitiful tone. “I didn’t know that today was the day the Maxwells‘ had dinner together.”
“Don’t get angry, son. Everyone saw her already, so you can’t get rid of her, right?”
Conrad snorted coldly and strode in.
They had all seen her. Getting rid of her would be the same as announcing to the whole world.
His mother really was a great troublemaker!
“You’re finally here, cuz. Where’s your little wife?”
Victor sat on the sofa with his legs folded and he greeted Conrad with a less–than–genuine smile.
