Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 182
Smelling the sweet scent on Conrad, Fia put her face near his neck.
“Thank you, Conrad. And… I’m sorry for my attitude just now.”
She knew how prideful he was. Had she accused him of being a thief on a normal day in the past, he would have already exploded with that temper of his.
She didn’t want to think about what stopped him from exploding. At this moment, just let her follow her heart for once. Let her caress him out of her own feelings.
Conrad’s body became stiff. All his anger slowly extinguished because of her embrace.
In that moment, he suddenly felt that she had a kind of love in her.
A love that could embrace all that he was. A love that could calm his
Maybe he should open his heart to her too, so she could have much more freedom.
Conrad embraced her back as her head lay on his chest. He
mumbled, “Why did you do that?
“After your mom passed away, you’re very unhappy. I wanted to do something for you, so I took your folder away. The designs are fitting with the theme that my company is going for lately.”
He lied. While her designs were quite unique, they were still
incomplete. They were not perfect. Several directors and seniors from the design department opposed his decision.
He personally fixed them despite the pressure he was facing. He made them into his company’s theme despite their objection.
“Why didn’t you tell me earlier?”
“Do you want to hear the truth?”
The two of them looked at each other.
Conrad raised his hand and pinched her cheek as he said with a
gentle voice, “Because you’re very upset lately and I didn’t dare tell you about it earlier. I was afraid that you’d reject me. And… I want to give you a surprise.”
“Surprise, huh?” Fia smirked. “It almost became a scare.”
“Are you happy now?”
Fia then said awkwardly, “Somewhat, I guess.”
They were in such a big fight just now, but she became happy all because of his surprise. She was so… useless.
When Conrad remembered why the two fought just now, he knew that if he didn’t clear this then and there, she would grow doubtful of him.
He then said in a stern voice, “Fia, I’ll investigate your claim about Esme wanting to kidnap you.”
He was thinking about it downstairs too. No matter if she was telling the truth, since Lola was the one that told her, maybe Fia had been lied to as well. He should investigate it so that he could convince Fia instead of fighting with her.
Fia’s eyes turned red. She wasn’t expecting him to take the initiative to investigate the matter. She was even more touched and she sobbed. She wanted to cry.
“I’m sorry. I’m the one who’s failed as a husband.” Conrad pulled her into his embrace and held her tightly. “From now on, I’ll think from your perspective when I act.”
When Fia heard his heart throbbing, she felt conflicted.
She didn’t know if she could still believe him.
Maybe all it took was a weeping Esme for him to change again.
“Fia, did you put on some weight?” Conrad placed a hand on her belly. “Your stomach is a little bigger?”
“You’re fat!” Fia pushed his hand away anxiously. “I simply ate too much at the seafood restaurant earlier. I’m so full that I haven’t fully digested the food yet.”
“Then I’ll give you a massage.”
“No thanks. The more I massage it the more uncomfortable l become.” Fia turned away from him nervously, worried that he would notice that she was pregnant.
Conrad didn’t think too much about it and simply hugged her from
Fia’s heart thumped nervously as she held her belly with her hands, worried he would touch it again..
“Let’s sleep, Fi.” Conrad tapped her arm.
“Yeah… I’m sleepy, so don’t wake me up.”
“Fine.” He smiled. “I didn’t get enough sleep lately too, so I won’t eat you tonight.”
Quietly, the two of them fell asleep. There was only peace in the bedroom.
The next morning, Conrad woke up and saw that Fia was still in her sweet dreams. He got up quietly.
“Morning.” Fia smiled at the man as she opened her sleepy eyes.
