Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 51
Every time the school needed to send students out for competition events, he would be among the chosen ones. He would always come back with the number one prize, improving the school’s reputation. Conrad was eight years older than her, and two years older than Esme.
When she was in second grade, her grandmother took her and her cousin to his grandfather’s birthday. When Conrad saw the guests in his family home, he acted like he usually did. Full of pride and arrogance.
Perhaps it was because of their grandparents‘ relationship, he would treat her and her cousin slightly better. He would actually greet them.
That time, he had somehow provoked the children from the other households while they were enjoying themselves in the family home’s backyard. They attacked him in a group.
She led her unwilling cousin into the fray. Of course, they couldn’t push back the others and she then went and called the adults.
When the adults came, the war stopped.
Afterward, she went to look for the Maxwell’s family doctor to look at her cousin, who had a swollen face from being bashed.
She had said something to him later.
After a while, he would always snort at her and call her a coward.
Meanwhile, he became the white knight of her cousin’s.
He would always give whatever that was nice or enjoyable to her cousin whenever he got it.
He would always accompany Esme to and from school.
Sometimes, Esme would take her along with them. However, she didn’t dare get too close to them.
Ever since she was very little, she had been very mature. She quickly realized her fondness for him. She
no longer dared to stand before him like an innocent child and call him “big brother“.
After she left the mansion and walked on the trail paved with cobblestones, she finally realized
Her cousin must have said something to Conrad all those years ago. That was why he called her a
Perhaps, he believed her to be unreliable because she ran during the fight.
Perhaps, he believed that only someone who fought the other group till the end was worthy of his eternal
However, he would never know that Esme didn’t want to go to help. She even complained about him being too aggressive and too bizarre.
He would never know that she had gotten pinched in the arm because she went to disturb the adults. The bruise was all blue and purple… It only fully healed after an entire week.
Fia stopped and looked into the night sky. She smiled.
It happened so many years ago… If she were to tell him about it now, he would not even listen to a word
she said. Instead, he would look down on him, wouldn’t he?
“It’s fine. There’s nothing left to be said. I just don’t have to be so stupid in the future anymore.”
Half an hour later, when Conrad didn’t see Fia after his shower, he couldn’t sleep after remembering how she liked to sleep.
He cursed and went downstairs. He saw a skinny figure outside the mansion sitting by the flowerbed.
He approached her from behind. He then saw the tears in her eyes and the dried tears on her face under the bright moonlight.
She cried again.
He knew that would happen.
“Go back to sleep!”
Fia was so surprised that she yelped when she heard him yell at her so loudly. She turned around in terror.
Conrad pulled her up and then picked her up to carry her inside, seeing that she couldn’t even walk properly.
He then said, “You sounded so resolute when you left, but you didn’t even leave the gates?”
She looked up and saw his chin under the moonlight.
“I’ll help you shave?”
“Are you trying to please me so we can make up?”
Fia raised her hands and put them around his neck. “I just didn’t want to start another fight with you.”
