Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 129
“What’s there to be worried about? I’m just taking care of you as a friend.”
Jason smiled gently and hid the feelings in his heart.
It was only at this moment did Fia realize that he was wearing a shirt and pants, and the necktie he was wearing was the one she gave him.
When she remembered how bothered Conrad was with Jason, she insisted on pulling her hand away.
“We’ll just have to go slower.”
Jason frowned. He could see her rejection, so he didn’t force the matter and slowed down.
However, the two of them didn’t expect it to start raining heavily when they were only halfway through.
The rain came without warning. Fia wanted to move quicker, but she accidentally slipped.
“Careful!” Jason was alert enough and saw what was happening, so he pulled her into his arms.
Someone saw what happened on the mountain.
“Fia!” Conrad’s roar was like a clap of thunder. He surprised Fia so much that she pushed Jason away. Jason had wanted to let go, but when he saw that she was about to slip again, he held her still.
“Let go of her!” Conrad ran over and gave Jason a kick out of anger.
Jason saw what was coming, but he didn’t dodge. He was worried that the moment he moved, Fia would fall once she lost her support.
“What are you doing?!” Fia stared at him angrily.
“What am I doing? Were you going to sleep with him if I didn’t come?!”
“You’re crazy!” Fia was so angry that she hurled her purse at him.
Conrad blocked the purse with his arms. The purse rebounded back to Fia and it almost hit her face. However, Jason extended his hand and blocked it.
The two men stared at each other, wanting to kill each other if they could.
Jason then said, “If you want to fight, we can do it once we’re off the mountain!”
He was worried that Fia might slip again because of the rain.
Conrad looked at Fia and noticed that her clothes were all wet, and he could see what she was wearing under her clothes.
He pulled Fia’s arm toward his side and said, “I’ll carry you down!”
“No need!” Fia refused immediately.
“Stop fighting, Fia. Conrad didn’t know that Aunt Beryl would start a fight at your home. Not to mention
that Aunt Echo’s days were numbered anyway. Aunt Beryl was just unlucky.”
Esme was consoling Fia gently like a good person, but it instead stirred up Fia’s anger.
She stared at Esme and hurled her purse at her.
Esme saw the purse hurled at her, got hit, and she fell to the ground.
Her white dress was instantly dirtied and some dirt got onto her face too.
“What are you doing?!” Conrad roared at Fia. Since Esme grabbed at his pants, he had no choice but to help her up first.
Once Esme stood up, she held on to Conrad’s arm with a crying face.
“It’s so slippery! Conrad, don’t push me away.”
Jason stared at Esme coldly and picked up Fia’s purse before kneeling in front of Fia.
“Get up. I’ll take you down the mountain.”
Fia stared at Esme holding Conrad’s arm and lost her focus.
Jason turned around and looked at her. “Fia, the rain is getting stronger. It’s not good for you.”
Fia shook her head and tried to walk down the mountain.
She had her own principles.
Not to mention that Conrad was like a mad dog. She didn’t want to drag Jason into all of that especially when Conrad ignored his own wrongdoings and only focused on hers.
“Fia!” Jason said nervously. Her face was slightly yellow and under her eyes were heavy dark bags. It was obvious that she did not have enough rest. If she got a fever from the rain, it was going to be very bad.
With no choice, he pulled her arm, forced her on his back, and proceeded to carry her down the mountain.
“Fia!” Conrad roared when he saw what happened. He wanted to chase after them but Esme held his waist and stopped him.
“Conrad, it’s… it’s so slippery…”
