Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 206
All the pictures taken were of her and Jason.
Every time she was in trouble, Jason would take care of her. The deep concern in his eyes. All the angles were just right. Her gentleness. Jason’s compassion.
If it was not because she was the subject of the photo, she too would think that the man and woman in the picture had something going on
“Anything else you want to say?” Conrad could see the clashing of emotions in Fia’s eyes. “Anything else you want to argue about?”
Fia looked at Jason and said, “Doctor Evans, leave us.”
It was too embarrassing. She didn’t want to drag him into this mess.
Jason glanced at the pictures in Conrad’s phone and knew what she was going to face. He didn’t believe that leaving would be a good
choice at this time.
“Mr. Maxwell. To be honest with you, I do admire Fia. But unlike you, I know where the line is drawn! Instead of wasting your time accusing me and Fia, why not reflect on what you did!”
“You!” Conrad looked at Jason angrily, wanting to crush him if
Fia quickly said, “Evans, please, I beg you. This is between us husband and wife… Let us deal with this ourselves.”
Jason frowned and turned to leave.
Fia recalled everything that had happened recently… And she began, ” I’m very tired now. I can’t even feel a little bit of joy from you knowing about me being pregnant.”
Conrad looked at her with a frown. “What are you saying?”
“I don’t want anything else other than my grandma’s project. Let’s get
Conrad gritted his teeth. “What about the child?”
“Didn’t you say the baby’s not yours? So, what does that have to do with you?”
Their eyes met. When Conrad saw the defeat and deep despair in her eyes, he began to get anxious and he held her hand.
“When… When I saw the pictures, I began blabbering.”
How could he have suspected her? She had never been the kind of girl to ignore the rules.
Fia took away her hand. Not only was she tired of trying to force herself to smile, but she was also emotionally tired.
“After falling from the stairs, I thought that I’d lose my baby. And the fear finally hit me.”
She looked away toward the window and the streams of sunlight beyond it. “Let’s get a divorce. I’m willing to let you two be, just so that I can have a peaceful life. I’m willing to do that.”
Conrad’s heart trembled as he asked the same question. “What about the baby?”
“There are many children born into unloving families in this world. There are also children that have to face their parents divorcing. Every child in this world has to face their own sufferings. I believe my child can make it.” Fia placed a hand on her belly and quietly apologized.
But she was really getting scared. She could give her life up, but she had to think about the baby.
Esme was becoming obsessed. If she stayed with Conrad, she didn’t
And this man was so indecisive. He would sometimes choose to stand with Esme. If that was the case, why must she force herself to stay in a cage of her own making?
She raised her eyes and looked at Conrad. “Have Silas prepare the divorce papers and I’ll sign them. We can complete the procedure as soon as I’m out of the hospital.”
When she saw his silence, she said, “Since you know so many people, I can give you my documents. You can then proceed with getting the divorce papers done.”
“No!” Conrad’s eyes turned red. “I won’t divorce you. You’re carrying my baby. Even if you don’t acknowledge it, the baby’s still mine! You and I both didn’t have a whole family… We can’t let our child walk the same path we did!”
Fia’s eyes shook with indecisiveness and remembered the
conversation between the two of them many years ago.
It was during an autumn outing that the school had organized. She had been sent by the other students to collect some firewood. She fell from the hill and hurt her leg, and had encountered Conrad there.
She was sobbing, and Conrad was cursing. “Oh gods, can you stop crying for once? All you do is cry and cry! There are so many boys in your class. Why didn’t you ask them to collect the firewood?” She then looked at him timidly and sobbed. “But they sent me…”
