Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 184
The night after he bought her the dressing table, she had greeted him home and happily had her hands around his neck and even kissed
him a few times.
The girl’s passion and sincerity… He felt something different stirring inside of him when he recalled those memories.
In the past, he rarely thought of her that way, but recently things were different.
Just what kind of feelings did he have for her?
Was it because she was his wife and he wanted to respect her? Or was it because he wanted to atone for what happened to her grandmother?
No, that was not all of it. Perhaps, he had all kinds of feelings for her.
Even the type between man and woman. Otherwise, he would not have lusted for her body even after their marriage of three years, and he never got tired of it either.
“Is there a reason why you want to see me, Mr. Maxwell?” Lola tightened her grip excitedly.
Conrad’s eyes glared at her coldly and asked directly, “You told Fia that Esme employed someone to kidnap her. Do you have proof?”
“Huh? You’re here because of that?” Lola was very disappointed. She
thought her youth and beauty had finally captivated him.
“You should provide proof when you accuse someone. Otherwise, I can sue you for defamation!”
“Defamation? Ms. Manning?” Lola was feeling quite upset inside. She was just a homewrecker. Why was he helping the homewrecker? Was
he not afraid of Fia’s safety at all?
“Looks like I wasted my time coming here.” Conrad turned around and
wanted to leave. He didn’t want to waste any time.
“Wait, don’t go. I’ll show you the evidence! I have the transfer receipt on my phone!”
Conrad took Lola’s phone and looked at the record before staring at
“This is an anonymous transfer.”
“Anonymous transfer? Ms. Manning was the one who transferred the money to me. I still have the messages that she sent to me!” Lola grabbed her phone backm opened her Messenger, and she was
“Where did the messages go?”
“You can blame whoever you want with an anonymous transfer!” Conrad said heartlessly, like a judge reading his sentence to a criminal. “Just with this alone, I can send you to the station. But seeing that you’re friends with Fia, I will overlook it this time. If there’s a next time, I’ll pursue this through legal means!”
“Impossible! No one touched my phone and I didn’t delete anything!” Lola searched for Esme’s name in Messenger but couldn’t find her.
She tapped and opened the transfer receipt. It was indeed an anonymous transfer. Esme’s name wasn’t on it.
“Impossible! I saw Esme’s name on the receipt a few days ago!”
Was it because her phone had a virus?
No. Everything was fine, but when Conrad touched it, all the problems started.
She glared at Conrad in disbelief. “Mr. Maxwell, why did you delete all
the evidence after you touched my phone? Sis Fia is your wife… You don’t care about her life and death at all?!”
“Ridiculous!” Conrad didn’t want to waste any more time and left.
Fia sat in the courtyard for a while before going back to the bedroom and answering Lola’s call.
Lola was both angry and upset. “Fia, Mr. Maxwell is too much! I don’t know what he did, but all the evidence in my phone has disappeared! Even Ms. Manning’s messages are gone.”
“He deleted them.” Fia could feel the chill in her heart, but she wasn’t surprised.
She should have known that Conrad would side with Esme when she came into the picture.
He said that he would investigate it, but that was how he ran the investigation? Delete the evidence in Lola’s phone?
“What should we do next, Fia?”
“Send the information on those gangsters that she bribed.”
“What do you want to do with that?”
“Just give them to me.”
“It’s not that I don’t trust you, Fia. But if I do that, I’m placing myself in your hands. I introduced them to Esme Manning… What if she said that I was the one who planned it all later on?”
“Don’t worry. You saved me yesterday. If she pins the blame on you, I’ll be your witness.”
“Then, can you promise me one thing?”
