Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 50
Fia could no longer maintain her cool and opened her eyes, glaring at Conrad.
“It belongs to me. I can give it to whomever I want!” Conrad said with cold eyes. Fia suddenly remembered something. “It’s her birthday today.”
When he saw the misgivings in her eyes calm, Conrad felt like he was a jester.
“You’re right. It’s yours. You can give it to whoever you want, even the entire company.”
Fia turned around and looked at the other side. She didn’t want to see him again.
Conrad felt his anger reach its tipping point as he pulled her up.
“Why are you doing this?!”
Fia frowned. She could feel the pain in her arm as he pulled her.
She raised her head and said, “Can you please stop? It’s the middle of the night.”
“And who’s the one that started this?!”
He grabbed her by the neck. He didn’t put any strength into it, but it was firm enough to make her immobile.
Fia looked at him, shocked. This was the first time she was seeing him being this violent.
“I gave you the wedding anniversary gift. Can’t you accept it happily?! What’s with the cold shoulder?! I told
you that this is more expensive than that bracelet! Isn’t that enough to show how earnest I am?!”
“Earnest?” Fia felt like it was all a joke. Despite him not putting any strength into his hands, she felt as if a knife was pointed at her throat.
She scratched his neck, just as he was doing it to her!
“Every time you bought me gifts, you asked Silas to choose them, didn’t you? You call that being earnest?!”
“I paid for them. There’s no difference even if I asked Silas to choose it!”
“Then what about Esme’s gift?” Fia grabbed Conrad’s wrist as his hands were still around her neck. “You’ll give her whatever she likes, right?”
“Conrad Maxwell… Don’t treat me like a fool, alright?”
Conrad could feel the pain from his wrists. He let go of her neck and looked at the scars on his wrists.
He then asked, “How would I know that she would suddenly not want the ruby necklace?”
Fia was even more infuriated. She immediately grabbed the box on the bedside table and dumped it on Conrad.
“What are you doing?!” Conrad darted off the bed and kicked away the ruby necklace on the ground.
Fia roared at him angrily, “You gave her the bracelet without even asking me! You already sent me the picture this morning! It’s supposed to be mine already! You didn’t even bother asking me before giving it to her!”
“It’s just a bracelet! It’s not even that expensive!” Conrad didn’t understand it all. When they were
discussing the divorce, she even asked him to give her jewelry away. It was just a bracelet… But it was enough to rile her up that much?
Looking at how nonchalant he was about it and even thinking she was overreacting, Fia could feel all her fury leaving her.
No matter how angry, how unfair, and how sad she felt, she didn’t want to let it out anymore.
She simply laid back down on the bed and covered herself in her blanket and even pulled it over her head. She didn’t want to entertain him anymore.
Conrad stared for a few seconds before pulling the blanket and revealing her head.
She immediately pulled it back up.
The two of them repeated a few times until Conrad said in an irritated tone, “If you want to die, just die. But don’t die in my bed!”
At the next second, the woman on the bed got up and walked out barefooted.
“If you walk out tonight, don’t come back!”
“I won’t come back even if you beg me!” Fia slammed the door once she walked out of the bedroom. Conrad was so angry that he gave the door a few kicks, making Fia’s heart tremble with every step she took.
At this moment, she remembered the youth in his senior high years.
She was still in elementary school back then. Conrad, Esme, and she all came from the same institution. It was a private school in Gryphon that included elementary, junior high, and senior high divisions.
The entire school knew him as the devil reincarnated.
Despite his excellent results, he would run away from school, smoke, and even start fights. He was a student that the teachers loved and hated at the same time.
