Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 208
Conrad sat by the bed and quietly patted Fia’s arm.
“I’m not lying, Fia. I was really happy when I found out about the baby.”
Fia still held her head low with her back against him. She was still not speaking, but the anger inside of her was already slowly disappearing.
Mainly, it was still because she loved him too much. He already had her heart even when she knew so little. Her love for him had been burned into her bones. All he needed to do was to treat her better and to coax her patiently, and she would put down all her armor.
“I know that everything that happened lately can’t make you believe me. Just look at me, Fi.”
Conrad held her arm. “I’m a man of my word.”
Fia choked and said, “Please, don’t say anything anymore. I’m very
tired. I need to rest.”
“Sleep well. I’ll watch over you.”
The ward became quiet as the sky fell into complete darkness. Conrad didn’t switch on the light, worried that he would disturb her
Fia didn’t sleep at all and her mind was in a mess. She was thinking a lot of things. Some about the past. Some about the future.
In the end, she sighed in the darkness as she rubbed her belly.
She then quietly whispered in her heart, ‘Let’s give him another chance. He didn’t deny you when he first found out about you. Maybe … He’s a good dad.’
There was a knock on the door. Conrad stood up and opened the
Outside the door, Silas was holding a picnic basket. “Mrs. Taylor asked me to bring some food over.”
“Shh… Fia’s sleeping.”
Silas looked at Conrad in shock. He thought to himself that his boss.
was addressing the madam with a much more intimate tone now. This was good news!
The person sitting on the bed switched on the lights.
“When did you wake up, Fia?”
Fia automatically ignored Conrad and pulled over the little table attached to her bed, and waved at Silas. “Put them here.”
“I’ll do it!” Conrad grabbed the picnic basket from Silas‘ hand and carefully laid out all the dishes. He then gave Fia a fork.
Fia grabbed it and began eating without much of an expression on
Silas could see that something was wrong, and he quickly said, “Have some too, sir. Mrs. Taylor said she made two portions. You and the madam can have one portion each.‘
“He has eaten!” Fia said in a cold and somewhat domineering tone. It was clear that she didn’t want to let Conrad eat.
Conrad was speechless. It was the first time she was acting like this.
Silas blinked and when he remembered how his boss had taken Esme to a candlelight dinner in the evening, he secretly supported the madam.
She finally knew how to hit back! Good job!
“Why are you still here?” Conrad looked at Silas with disdain.
“Silas, can you help with something? I’ll tip you. I need a lawyer.”
“Lawyer? Sure. The company’s law division is quite good. I’ll arrange one for you tomorrow when I’m at the office.” Silas felt something was not right. They were a family after all.
Fia bit her fork and looked at Silas. “I want to find a lawyer to sue your
Silas instantly gave up. “Madam, the boss is taking care of the family more frequently now. Maybe the two of you can openly discuss any misunderstandings you have?”
Fia looked at Conrad. “I want my grandma’s project. If you don’t agree, we’ll go to court.”
Conrad took a deep breath. “I’ll give it to you, but it’ll take a few days to sort out the paperwork.”
“Fine. I hope you’ll keep your promises!”
Conrad raised his eyebrow at Silas, and Silas quickly found an excuse
Fia concentrated on her food. However, Mrs. Taylor had prepared food meant for two or three. No matter how hard she tried, she
couldn’t finish it all.
She put the fork down and wanted to clean it up, but a hand reached out and took her fork away.
“Are you full?”
