Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 49
Fia hesitated for a few seconds before saying with insistence, “You’re reading too much into it, Mrs. Taylor. I’m not pregnant.”
“Understood, Madam. Since you’re not feeling well, please return to the bedroom and have some rest.”
At ten at night, Conrad finally reached home. The moment he entered through the door, he was greeted by Mrs. Taylor’s worried eyes.
“Master Maxwell, please speak with the madam when you have the time.”
“I believe that she’s pregnant. However, she probably doesn’t know it herself or doesn’t want you to know.” Conrad frowned and looked at Mrs. Taylor with a strange look. “She’s infertile. Not to mention that being pregnant isn’t something to be ashamed of. If she really is pregnant, why wouldn’t she tell me?”
Mrs. Taylor had no answers to his questions.
That was true. If she really was pregnant, the madam would be overjoyed.
She had to endure so much pain during the therapy and even with her mother–in–law. The reason that she did all that was so she could bear a child for Master Maxwell, right?
“Have I really over–thought things?”
“If you’re too bored, you can exercise in the park together with some friends.”
“You must be joking, Master Maxwell.”
“I’m not. I can even ask Silas to drive you.”
Conrad walked up the stairs and Mrs. Taylor quickly asked, “Have you eaten?”
“I already did.”
Mrs. Taylor felt it wasn’t right on her madam’s behalf. Ever since her cousin came back, Master Maxwell never came back as scheduled anymore.
After Conrad went into the bedroom, he took out a beautifully packaged box from his briefcase.
He walked over to the side where Fia was lying down and put the box in front of her.
“Thank you,” Fia said. She hadn’t gone to bed all this while, thinking about the present in the picture he sent her that morning.
It was a bracelet made of tourmaline crystals. She fell in love with it a month ago when she saw it at the Maxwell Corporation’s launch event.
She didn’t expect him to have paid attention to it and give it to her as a wedding anniversary gift.
Conrad looked at the woman getting up and then removed the wrapping with her head low.
He bit the inside of his mouth and said, “Something happened.”
“What happened while you’re on your way home? I told you to drive slowly, but you never listened,” Fia said a few more words because of her good mood.
Conrad swallowed what was going to come out of his mouth. He wanted to see the joy in her for a few more seconds.
She removed the ribbons and the wrappings. But when she opened the box, the joy in her expression froze.
“You don’t like it?” Conrad quickly asked.
The corner of Fia’s lips was raised as she closed the box and put it on the bedside table.
Conrad became irritated and stared at her as he sat down on the bed. “I know that it’s not the tourmaline bracelet that you wanted, but this ruby bracelet is also something the company has newly launched. It’s even more expensive than the bracelet.”
Fia didn’t even want to entertain him with a glance.
The reason that she liked the bracelet wasn’t because of the price. It was because it matched her taste.
He had gifted her plenty of jewelry. Many of them were very expensive or were limited editions. However, he had never given her something made of tourmaline crystals.
She really liked jewelry made from tourmaline, in all honesty.
Yet, she had never asked him to give her anything. She never told him about it either.
However, on the day of the product launch, she did say that she loved the bracelet the most.
When she saw the picture he sent to her earlier, she thought he had kept her words in his mind.
“Why won’t you ask what happened?” Since he didn’t get an answer out of her, he asked her a question again.
Fia closed her eyes and said, “It’s getting late. I’m very sleepy.”
Faced with her coldness, a smoldering wickedness arose in his heart. He then said in a cruel tone. “The tourmaline bracelet that you wanted… Esme wanted it.”
