Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 201
She knew she couldn’t depend on him!
“You want to settle this among ourselves. Fine.” She took a deep breath. “Give me back my grandma’s project!”
Conrad stared at her for a few seconds in silence. “Sure.”
In a certain high–class restaurant.
It was exclusively booked.
An expensive table was set in the middle of the dining hall. A man and a woman sat across from each other as they had their
“Conrad, I knew you still cared about me.” When Esme left the station in the afternoon, she received Conrad’s call about the dinner. She purposely went to a stylist and wore her best outfit to the dinner.
Conrad’s eyes never fixed on her as he simply stared at the dancing flame on the candle.
“Your candlelight dinner,” he said in a frigid tone, “is the last thing I’ll do for you.”
Esme could feel her chest tighten as she raised her wine glass.
“Let’s drink, Conrad.”
Conrad numbly raised his glass and clinked it with hers.
He gave it a sip and said, “From now on, no matter if you or the Mannings are in trouble, don’t come to me.”
“Why? Conrad, don’t you know how important I am to you after all this?”
Esme still didn’t understand what was happening. She thought he simply didn’t care whether she hurt Fia or not, and only worried about her getting scared, and that was why she chose to settle this privately. Then, he asked her out for dinner as soon as she was discharged.
“At the end of the day, I’m the one that owes Fia on this.” Conrad’s grip on the wine glass tightened. “The only reason I asked Fia to settle this privately is not because I can’t let go or want to protect you. I’m simply burying that girl that I liked a long time ago.”
He raised his head and looked at Esme, his eyes without any warmth at all. Instead, it was terrifyingly cold.
“Esme, after this dinner, we’ll go on our own paths. If you hurt Fia ever again, I’ll make you pay double!”
Esme slumped on her chair and the glass in her hand fell, spilling her wine as the glass shattered into a million pieces.
Her tears rolled down and she asked in disbelief, “You really want to
cut me off?”
“Have you forgotten the promise you made to me when we were young? That you’ll marry me and love me forever.”
“You said it yourself. We were young then. We’re no longer young. We’re no longer the same people when you refused the marriage and left the country.”
After Conrad finished the wine in his glass, he got up and turned around, leaving without a second thought.
Esme sat at the table and began to sob. Her cries became louder and louder.
She thought her cries could make him stay, but when she looked at
the door with her teary eyes, it didn’t even slow him down… Forget about making him turn his head around.
Silas opened the door to the car and looked into the restaurant. He could see Esme crying like a fool.
“Silas, send me to the hospital. Fia is still waiting for me there.”
“Sure!” Silas was in a good mood. His boss had finally settled
everything in one go. He no longer needed to feel guilty in front of the madam.
Eileen was at the ward to accompany Fia. She showed Fia the picture that the paparazzi took.
“Look, Fia! You’re at the hospital, yet he still went to see that homewrecker!”
Fia looked at the picture carefully and smiled.
“A candlelight dinner. Eileen, did you know? We’ve been married for three years. We’re husband and wife. but he’s never treated me to a candlelight dinner.”
