She pretended not to see Conrad as she pulled Eileen’s hand and had her sit down.
“Have some fruit, Eileen.”
She then turned around and rubbed her mother’s back and said, “Don’t worry about me, mom. I’m fine”
“Fia…” Echo held her daughter’s hand and only managed to calm down after a long time.
Thea had also calmed down as she straightened her back. “You want a divorce? Fine. Firstly, you’re not allowed to see Esme again before your divorce is complete! Secondly, the reason that I passed you the project that Old Maxwell and I were managing was so you would treat Fia well!
“Now that you want to divorce Fia, you will pass it to her! Have Accounting calculate everything clearly Pass everything on to her!”
Fia was stunned. She didn’t know that her grandma had sacrificed so much so that Conrad would treat
She was feeling even worse. Was the reason Conrad treated her well for the past three years because of that project?
Conrad frowned and said, “I can’t pass that to her.”
“I personally started that project and Old Maxwell funded it! Before he passed away, he had already written in his will that the project would be given to me. All I’m doing right now is taking back what’s rightfully mine. Why can’t you pass it to Fia?”
Conrad sat down on the single seater sofa and then said with a cold expression, “I promised to give it to Esme this afternoon.”
“What did you say?!” Thea screamed out before she promptly lost consciousness.
The entire living room was thrown into chaos.
“Mom! Cough! Fia, call the ambulance!”
“Grandma!” Fia was at a loss as she tried to find her phone. She forgot that she had placed it in the
Eileen immediately called Lyn. Lyn and her driver quickly ran into the mansion. The driver carried Thea to
the car outside.
Fia was about to follow after them but Conrad caught her wrist.
When she looked into Conrad’s calm eyes, she suddenly burst out into laughter.
“You don’t care about anyone’s life and death as long as Esme’s life is not on the line… Is that it?”
Conrad frowned. “I’ve already sent Silas a message. He’ll take care of the hospital and doctor
Fia pulled her arm away “You better pray that my grandma’s fine! Otherwise, I won’t let you marry Esme
even if I have to die!”
Eileen quickly removed Conrad’s hand from Fia and they followed after the driver and Lyn as they helped Echo along the way
“Fia!” Conrad roared. “Last warning! If you force Esme into a corner again, I’ll make sure that everyone you care about will lose everything!”
His words hammered into Fia’s mind, and she stumbled. If it wasn’t because Eileen managed to help her in time, she would no doubt have fallen on the ground face first.
“Are you even human?!” She turned around and screamed back as she stared into his amber eyes.
“My mom’s extremely sick and my grandma fainted because of you, and you still threaten me?!”
Conrad simply replied with a cold expression, “Grandmother Thea has been healthy and tough all along. She won’t faint simply because of a few words.”
“What the h’ll do you mean by that?!” Fia shouted out in frustration. “Are you saying that my mom faked. her illness too? Are you saying that we faked all of this, so you won’t divorce me out of pity?!”
“You must be f*ck*ng crazy, Conrad Maxwell! No one will ever joke about this kind of thing! Forget about him, Fia. We have to get to the hospital as soon as possible!”
Echo coughed as she cried and shook her head. “Conrad, you’ve disappointed us all.”
“All I want is for things to return to how it was supposed to be,” Conrad muttered stubbornly, refusing to face the agitation he was feeling inside.
