Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 131
Conrad frowned and looked at Fia as if she was someone unreasonable.
“Are you joking? They aren’t even remotely comparable.”
“Feeling reluctant?” Fia was smiling as her tears rolled down.
He had slapped her before.
That was the difference between her and Esme
One was the true love that he cared about more than anything in the whole world. The other was just a wife in name only!
“You aren’t like this, Fia.”
Conrad could feel a sting in his heart. For the past three years, she had always been well–behaved. She would never say anything that might harm others. She was even respectful toward Mrs. Taylor.
Why did she become like this?
“Don’t waste your breath on me!” Fia was further provoked by his disappointing stare.
He was a husband that cared about another woman at all times. What right did he have to ask her to be a dutiful wife?!
“If you want to continue playing your role of a dutiful son and want me to let go of your mom, slap Esme in front of me! Otherwise, you can forget about it!”
All she was asking for was a slap. She wasn’t even asking him to abuse her physically.
She could already see how much affection he had for Esme from that alone.
“I won’t!” Conrad refused. “If you want someone to take it out on, take it out on me. You can hit and yell at me as much as you like.”
“Then you can forget about it.” Fia looked at him coldly before walking to Jason’s car.
Jason grabbed a blazer and put it over her shoulders. He then closed the car door once she was inside. He looked at Conrad who was standing below the platform and said, “Even I feel disgusted at you, Mr. Maxwell. And I’m a man.”
Conrad glared at him and was about to rush over but Esme grabbed his arm.
“That’s enough for now, Conrad. Let’s figure out how to get your mom out of the station first.”
All he could do was watch Jason leaving with Fia in his car.
Conrad kicked on the platform and pushed Esme away.
“Call your own driver to pick you up. I have something else to do.”
He didn’t give Esme a glance as she lay on the ground miserably.
“Conrad!” Esme looked at Conrad driving away, her face pale.
Resentment filled her eyes and even the expression on her face was somewhat warped.
She should have pushed Fia down the mountain just now when she was not paying any attention! It would be even better if she lost her child because of it!
She simply wasn’t vicious enough!
Jason could see Conrad’s car tailing them through the rear mirror. He glanced at Fia, who was sitting in the passenger’s seat.
“Fia, Mr. Maxwell is tailing us.”
Fia looked at the back and then said, “Evans, lose him.”
“You don’t want to go home?”
“I don’t want to see him. I don’t want to go to his mansion either.”
All she could think about was that she had simply asked him to do a simple favor to take care of her mom while she took a shower. But Beryl had managed to sneak in and hit her mother. She simply couldn’t accept this.
“Hold on.” Jason stepped on the gas and overtook a few cars. He then went into another street and went to another highway.
After Conrad lost Jason’s car, all he could do was slam on his steering wheel out of frustration.
When Jason saw that he had lost Conrad, he slowed down his car.
He couldn’t help but tighten his grip over the steering wheel and ask, “What are your plans after this?”
“After this?” Fia’s eyes were red as she leaned on the car window.
“In the past, I wished that I could have a child. When it’s not so busy on the weekend, I would take the child back to visit my mom and grandma, and maybe have a walk together with them outside.
“But… I don’t know what else to do right now.”
Jason suppressed his feelings and said to her gently, “Live well. For those that have passed away.”
“Yeah,” Fia responded coldly, her heart full of bitterness.
Grandma and her mom had advised her not to divorce.
But she was very, very tired.
Even if she did manage to stop Conrad and Esme from marrying each other, she would also lose herself in her revenge.
