Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 219
Eileen paused, but she stood with her back straight. “There’s no need to reconsider my options. Please thank Ms. Starling on my behalf. I’m a human, after all. Not an animal. I can’t hurt another innocent person knowingly!”
Fia looked at Eileen worriedly. After she got into the car from the other side, she looked out of the car numbly.
“Our future will only get better.”
“Yeah.” Eileen sighed before flashing a smile at Fia. “Don’t worry, I’m
Conrad focused on driving the whole way and didn’t cut in between
He drove directly to the Koi Gardens basement. No one knew Eileen
Reid would be here, so there was no one here at all.
Even when she got down the car, Eileen was still covering herself. She then said to Conrad, “Take Fia back to the hospital. I can head up myself.”
“Eileen…” Fia looked at her with worry on her face as she held onto Eileen’s hand.
Eileen grinned at her, saying, “I’m not that weak. Trust me.”
“I want to stay with you.”
“Now that the dust has almost settled, I don’t feel that worried
anymore. All I want to do now is to sleep. We’ll talk after I wake up, okay?” Fia was probably the only person that Eileen would speak to so gently right now.
a text message is fine too.”
“Sure. I won’t let you and the baby worry!”
However, the moment she shifted her attention to Conrad, her gentle eyes instantly turned icy. “Mr. Maxwell, I hope you can take good care of Fia and her baby. Otherwise, I’ll take her away from you!”
Conrad burst out a laugh. “Do you think you can do that?”
“Maybe I can’t, but Victor can. He feels very guilty right now and wants to make things up to me. Other than marrying me, he’ll do his best to fulfill anything I want!”
Conrad’s expression instantly turned cold. “Sapphire Starling helping you… He asked for her help?”
Eileen let out an icy smile and left the car. She didn’t even want to reply to Conrad.
The atmosphere in the car instantly froze. Fia stared at Conrad from
the back seat.
“You’re worried about Sapphire, aren’t you?” She could see from the change in his expression.
“I know that Sapphire is innocent, but so is Eileen. When she joined your cousin’s company, she didn’t know that he had a fiancée. Your cousin’s the one at fault. Why did he lay down a trap for her when he already had a fiancée? Is love something worth so little respect in your eyes?”
Conrad frowned. He didn’t pay much attention when the topic of the conversation was Eileen. However, he did catch the final sentence.
“You love me too?” He turned around and gazed at Fia, his heart slowly thumping faster and faster.
Fia secretly bit her lips and then carefully said, “Luckily, I don’t.”
Conrad frowned and stared at Fia. He then said as this feeling burst out from his heart, “Sometimes, I feel that you like me.”
Fia looked away. “Grandpa Maxwell and Grandma forced us to get married. There’s no love there.”
“Maybe not in the very beginning, but people can fall in love after a long time.” Conrad wanted to see a hint of anxiety on her face. The more anxious she was, that meant the more she was deceiving him.
However, Fia’s expression didn’t change at all. Instead, there was a faint, mocking smile.
“Do I look like a fool? I wouldn’t dare love you when I know you love my cousin so deeply.”
But the truth was, she was that fool. Like a lot of innocent young girls, she was attracted by his arrogant, handsome looks. She couldn’t control her feelings at all.
If it wasn’t because she dreamed of something that she shouldn’t have three years ago and had perhaps found a normal boyfriend that loved her and cared for her instead, maybe her life would be much easier?
But the hardest part of being human was letting go.
There were people that would only love that one, single person. Even if they never met that person again, they could never let it go.
