Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 249
She didn’t want to give him her heart just for him to shatter it once again.
“Conrad, once the baby is born, let’s separate. I won’t stop you from visiting the baby, and once the baby has grown up a little, I will communicate with our child. Then, we can live on our own and find our own. happiness.”
Conrad calmed down. As long as she didn’t ask for a divorce immediately, he still had time.
He believed that he had the chance to make things return to how everything was before this. To make her and their child inseparable from him.
In the evening after their lunch, Conrad had to leave because of something important at the company.
Fia used this chance to give Eileen a call and asked for her help to open a secured account overseas. She then transferred the money that she promised to Lola’s contacts.
When Esme realized that Conrad wouldn’t visit her when she was in the hospital, she completed the discharge papers and went shopping at a mall with Beryl. Once she was sure that Beryl was happy, she sent her home while she prepared to go home herself.
When she was almost home, a black van without a plate suddenly came from the opposite direction and stopped right in front of her car purposefully, forcing her to stop.
Several men wearing masks and hats got out of the van and smashed her car window. One of them then extended his hand inside and opened the car door.
Esme was so scared that her face became pale. “Who are you? What do you want to do?!”
The man who opened the car door sat on the passenger’s seat and revealed a scar on his terrifying face.
“We need to talk, Ms. Manning.”
Esme was so scared by the man that she shuddered. “I don’t know you. There’s nothing to talk about.”
“Oh? But we still have the evidence of you trying to arrange a kidnapping.”
Esme’s face turned pale. “What… What do you want to talk about?”
“I want to discuss this business of yours.”
“You didn’t complete it. What’s there to talk about…”
The man didn’t say anything and simply pulled her hair and dragged her toward the passenger’s seat.
“If you don’t want to talk about it, Ms. Manning, I suppose you won’t mind what we’re going to do next.”
Esme was in so much pain that she begged for mercy, but her hand pressed her phone’s emergency call button in her jeans.
“Mr. Maxwell, the madam’s designs are very well–received. Should we ask her to make more designs?” Silas asked as he drove.
Conrad looked at the sales data from the company’s major branches. “She’s pregnant now and she’s quite upset too. We can’t tire her.”
“This is a good chance though and it’s going to be very helpful for the madam’s career. Would you speak.
Conrad gave it a thought. Fia was getting colder and colder toward him. If she were to put more. emphasis on her work, he would lose all importance in her life.
“Maybe after she has given birth.”
Just then, a call came in. Conrad gave it a look and wanted to hang up, but when he remembered how his mother cursed at Fia in the hospital, he wanted to give her another warning.
However, the woman from the other side begged for mercy.
“Please, don’t hit me anymore! How much do you want? I’ll give it to you.”
“Please, I beg you! Someone misled me last time! I didn’t want to hurt anyone! If you want money, go to the person that contacted you, please…”
“Oh… How shameless can you get? You didn’t even answer our calls in the past few days! We’re going to teach you a lesson!”
“No! Did Fia ask you to do this?! I didn’t want to hurt her! How can she do this to me?! Ah!” Conrad’s vein was popping as Esme’s voice was becoming louder and louder.
“Damn it! You made a call?!” The man on the other end found the phone in Esme’s jeans. He grabbed it and immediately threw it out the window.
