Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 197
His heart almost stopped when he arrived with the other medical staff and saw her lying there covered in blood.
He was really scared that the marriage would ruin her and take her away. That he would no longer be able to see her ever again.
“I… I’m alright.” Fia calmed down after she let out her tears.
Jason let go of her and blew at the gauze wrapping on her head. ” Now, don’t be so naughty and rest well in the hospital. Just don’t go anywhere, alright?”
Fia nodded with her eyes red.
At the door of the ward, Conrad was standing barefooted in a hospital gown. He had been standing there for a while and saw how his wife hugged Jason and cried in his arms. He was angry, but Mrs. Taylor’s words echoed in his ears again and again.
“I beg you, Master Maxwell! Please treat the madam well! She didn’t- even dare to tell you that she’s pregnant because you’ve hurt her so much and she didn’t dare to depend on you!”
He couldn’t believe it at first. How could she get pregnant when she was infertile?
After that, joy rose in his heart. He kept on thinking if it would be a baby boy or a baby girl and whether the baby would look like him or
He pushed Esme and Mrs. Taylor away and ran over barefooted, wanting to ask her if it was his child.
But he didn’t expect to see that moment.
Fia could feel someone watching from the door and looked at him.
Conrad could feel the pain in his heart when she looked at him like. that. He went in barefooted and pulled Jason away, saying, “Leave my wife alone!”
He had just finished when Jason turned around and punched him.
“What?! Do you want to fight? Let’s go!” Conrad was a punk in his youth and now he had his fist to Jason.
Both of them were from good families. They had learned how to fight since they were little and neither managed to one up the other.
“Conrad, stop!” Fia roared.
“Why did you tell me to stop and not him?!” Conrad started as he
stared at her.
“Because you deserve it!” Fia bit her lips. “The reason that I’m like this is all because of you!”
Conrad looked at the gauze around her forehead and said, “Yes, it’s my fault.”
“Is that how you should apologize?” Jason asked angrily.
Conrad glared at Jason. “This is between the two of us and has nothing to do with you!”
“By hurting Fia, you hurt me! I…”
“Evans, please leave us for a bit. I want to talk to him.” Fia cut Jason off. She didn’t want him to dirty himself because of this.
Jason looked at Fia worriedly. “Press the bell if there’s anything. I’m available at any time.”
“Okay.” Fia forced a smile. She was really grateful for Jason. He was a good friend… And was really like a brother to her.
When Jason left, Conrad quickly asked, “Is the child okay? I heard from Mrs. Taylor that you fell from the stairs. Why did you fall so suddenly?”
Fia looked at him with icy eyes.
“True. My husband brought a woman into our bedroom. Why did I fall, I wonder?”
Conrad frowned. “What do you mean? I don’t know what happened after I fainted last night. Is it because you slipped and fell when you
wanted to leave?”
“No!” Fia screamed uncontrollably. “It’s Esme Manning! She pushed
me down the stairs!”
Conrad was stunned as he looked at Fia going mad.
“Fia, I know you’re angry that Esme came with me back home last night. But she simply saw me drinking too much at the bar and sent me home. There’s nothing between us!”
“Enough! Enough!” Fia screamed as much as she could as her tears
continued to fall.
She took a deep breath as she almost went out of breath. She held her hands tightly and stared at Conrad.
“I’ll tell you once again that your childhood love’s the one who pushed me down the stairs. She knows that I’m pregnant and wants me to lose the baby! She wanted to kill me!”
“Impossible!” Conrad instinctively refuted her. He couldn’t accept the answer. Esme was not that kind of person.
