Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 200
Fia gave him a look and asked, “Do I need your permission to handle
my own matters?”
Conrad sat on the chair and looked at Fia sternly.
Of course, with his capability, he could see right through her.
“You lied to me.”
Fia was provoked again as she roared at him, “I don’t care whether you believe it or not. Esme wants me to lose my baby! She wants to
Conrad then remembered what Esme said about Fia just now. She had depression and was delusional about everyone wanting to harm.
“You’re not emotionally stable right now. You can’t determine things with just your mere thoughts.”
“Fine. There’s no need for me to tell you so much. Since in your eyes, she is a pure and innocent, kind and gentle woman! But one day, she’ll show her true self! And whether you believe it or not, you’ll have to
face the truth then!”
When Fia imagined what that would look like, she looked at Conrad and gave him a bizarre smile.
“When the time comes, I wonder if you’ll think that you were too blind.”
Conrad suddenly felt that he was surrounded by fog, and he wasn’t sure anymore.
Could Esme really be that violent?
“Fia, rest well. I need to leave.”
He turned around and left the ward. He wanted to go back and see
how the officers were investigating his home.
He needed to be there in person.
“Mr. Maxwell, from our investigation, the reason that your wife fell
from the stairs could be because she tripped over the flowerpot on the second floor, by the staircase.”
Conrad frowned. “Any other possibility?”
Another officer nodded. “It could be possible that someone else
A few officers walked up and down and then pointed at that flower pot that had been shattered, filling the entire staircase with mud and ceramic pieces. Very quickly, they reenacted the scene with a ” pursuer” and the “pursued.” The “pursuer” threw that flowerpot at the ” pursued” down at the staircase, causing the “pursued” to fall.
The officer then told Conrad, his expressions darkening as he listened, saying, “What we reenacted just now was according to what your wife told us. According to how the flowerpot was shattered and what your housekeeper told us, there’s a huge possibility that this is
Conrad could feel a chill down his spine. According to this scenario, no matter if Esme pushed Fia down the stairs or not, she had wanted
to hurt her.
“Mr. Maxwell, we’ve just learned more about this case. Since this is at conflict that arose from your relationship, you’re responsible for this
Afterward, Conrad was obviously distracted when he was talking with the police.
Before the police left, Conrad suddenly asked, “Can we settle this on
The officer looked at him strangely and said, “Yes, you can. But your wife, Mrs. Fia Maxwell, must be the one that proposes that.”
After he sent the officers away, Conrad went to the hospital with a
When Fia heard the door open, she asked him, “What did the officers say?”
Conrad stared at her. “Did you two fight last night?”
Fia frowned. “What are you saying? Are you trying to blame it on me?”
“Fia…” Conrad walked over and held her hand as he sat by her bed. Can we settle this ourselves?”
Fia felt like a blade had just skewered her heart. “Do you know what she meant by that? She wanted me to lose our baby! She wanted my life!”
“Esme is emotionally unwell lately. When she came back, I promised her that I would marry her. But lately, I’ve been wanting to cut her off, so she might lose control when she’s facing you.”
Conrad’s tone was anxious, and even fearful.
He couldn’t accept Esme to be that kind of person. Fia pulled her hand away as her eyes began to turn red.
