“Rubbish! All men are the same!” Eileen growled in anger.
Fia grabbed Eileen’s arm and kept her close. “But… I just can’t accept it. Especially when I see her in his
“What right does she have? What right does she have to take him back when she abandoned him three years ago? Does she think that she can have him back whenever she wants? We are the ones that are married. She has no right to ask me to give him up to her.”
Eileen grabbed Fia’s arm and said, “If you can’t accept it, let me give you an idea. Don’t hide the news about your pregnancy. Instead, we have to let everyone know! Not only do the Maxwells need to know, but we also want Esme to know about it too. We want the entire Gryphon city to know about it! Let’s see if Conrad will kill his own child for his first love!”
When Fia heard the word “kill“, she shuddered.
“What if… He really wants me to abort my child for Esme?”
Eileen instantly went silent. She knew that there was nothing more she could say, as the decision was in Fia’s hands.
The worst part about this was Fia couldn’t accept the consequences of it all.
“Eileen… What should I do?”
She could not hold back her tears in front of her best friend..
Eileen held her tightly and patted her back lightly.
The lights in her eyes slowly disappeared.
“If Conrad really is that heartless, then whatever. If you want to bring that child into this world, then don’t worry about the child not having a complete family. We’ll be the child’s parents together. We’ll love and care for the child so that the child grows up happy and healthy!”
“Thank you, Eileen…” Fia sobbed again..
Eileen sighed and consoled her.
She hoped that Fia would not go through the same pain she did.
After crying for a few minutes, Fia forced herself to pick herself up.
“Alright, you should go attend to your matters, Eileen. You’ve already wasted enough time on me and you haven’t even had your dinner.”
Eileen kissed her forehead and wiped her tears away.
She then said regretfully, “I’m really sorry but I have a banquet I have to go to tonight. I can’t accompany you right now but keep in touch. Don’t weather the storm alone, alright?”
Eileen took out her phone and realized that Lyn had already sent her a lot of messages to tell her she had to leave.
“Let’s go to a spa in a few days, Fia. Let’s relax together.”
When Fia heard the humiliation Conrad spewed at Eileen, she could already guess who it was Eileen depended on to be able to become so popular in such a short time. However, if her friend didn’t speak
about it, she wouldn’t ask about it..
Eileen was a good woman. She wouldn’t do anything that harmed others.
Perhaps… She had her own reasons. Reasons that she couldn’t tell her.
“Be careful with your work, Eileen. If you’re getting too tired, then have a rest. Since you’re quite rich right now anyway.”
Eileen was stunned. And then she saw the concern in Fia’s eyes.
She let out a roguish smile and pinched Fia’s face.
“Don’t worry about me. My zodiac sign is a cat… I have nine lives! Plus, you know how hard it is to be able to advance in this industry. Now that things are working out for me, I need to use this chance to get some more work while I still can. No one will complain that they’re getting too rich, right? As for you, take good care of yourself. Don’t worry about me.”
She paused before giving Fia’s belly a light stroke. “And the child too.”
“I’m going now,” Eileen said as she put on her mask. She then called her personal assistant and driver to pick her up.
Fia walked her to the elevator and then turned to the ward that her grandma was in.
Inside the elevator, Eileen instantly lost the energy that she had when she was with Fia as she leaned against the elevator wall.
A blizzard was stirring in those beautiful eyes.
“I’m sorry, Fia. I can’t leave right now.”
That despicable man had her sign a contract when she fell into his honey trap.
She’ll have to work for him until the end of her life.
