Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 142
“As I thought. She was the one who told you that.” Fia massaged her temple. “Just what did she promise you? Let me guess.
“Secretly abort my child, remove me from the Maxwell household, take her into the family, she’ll give your son a child, and once she has control over your son’s financial, she’ll share half with you?”
Beryl felt a chill down her spine. Because everything Fia said was right.
“The reason you don’t like me is not because I’m not my cousin. It’s not because I’m not your son’s childhood friend and lover. It’s because I honor my husband above all else and won’t ally myself with you. Isn’t that right?”
Fia smiled after she was finished.
Beryl pulled back and said, “You’re spouting lies and trying to destroy our relationship! I have such a great son! I’m going to live a good life until the day I’m dead!”
“True. You’re so lucky compared to a lot of mothers in this world… But you wanted more,” Fia said with a sneer. “Once Conrad realizes who you really are and knows what you’re planning, will he still treat you as well as he does now?”
“Shut up!” Beryl yelled angrily. “Stop speculating!”
“Speculating, huh?” Fia pointed at her own ears. “Last year, during your birthday, I personally heard it when I went back to the family residence. You should feel lucky that I went back alone and not with Conrad
because he was busy.”
Beryl’s expression changed. “What did you hear?”
“I heard everything that you said when you chatted with Victor’s mother. Oh, right. I recorded it all,” Fia said with a gentle, calm smile.
Beryl’s teeth chattered. She could no longer yell at her.
Once Fia left the police station, she switched on her phone and made a call.
“I spoke with your mother. As long as she does everything she needs to, I won’t pursue the lawsuit.”
Before Conrad could say anything, she decisively hung up.
She had lied to Beryl.
She had heard of Beryl’s ambitions, but she hadn’t recorded it.
Maxwell Corporation, CEO office.
Pale, Conrad looked at his phone that had locked automatically.
He looked at the document that had been patched and his grandpa’s diary.
Silas whispered, “What should we do now?”
He did as he was asked and had found the document from the tomb. After some restoration work, all the missing content could be read.
The content of the document proved that the project that Thea and Old Maxwell worked on together belonged to Thea.
“Leave me and let me think.”
Conrad locked himself up in the office the entire afternoon.
The diary recorded what happened between his grandpa and Thea when they were in their youth.
The two of them loved each other, but his grandpa gave up on Thea because of an alliance pact that required him to marry someone from another household.
About that project, Old Maxwell and another overseas company had both wanted it, and the latter had given her a much better deal.
However, Thea had thought of their past and chose to work with his grandpa to help the Maxwells, who were in trouble back then, giving up on the better deal.
And he… destroyed his grandpa’s relationship with Thea.
If he had known, he would have been saddened… He would hate him.
And Fia… If she knew about all of this, she would be so disappointed in him.
“She can’t find out about this!” Conrad quickly packed the document and diary and locked them up in a
He didn’t know why he cared so much about what she thought about him. He felt very remorseful and all he wanted now was to see her. “Where are you?”
“At home,” Fia answered coldly.
“Wait for me. I’ll be there soon!” Conrad said urgently.
Fia was shocked. It was an hour and a half before he finished work. Why would he come home right now? Just to fight with her again?
