Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 57
“On the grounds that it was manufactured by Maxwell Corporation, and as the company’s owner, I can give it to whomever I want!” Conrad said as he unbuttoned his collar. He then extended his hand to Fia.” Give it to me.”
Fia never expected that one day, Conrad would want something back from her that forcefully.
Humiliation, sorrow, shame, and all kinds of negative emotions crashed into her.
With her eyes red and filled with tears, she stared at Conrad.
“So… this is your choice.”
Conrad frowned slightly. He felt that what she said made little sense.
Fia let out a bitter laugh as she walked toward a nearby window and flung the bracelet from it.
“Conrad! Look at what she’s doing!” Esme said with a cry.
Conrad looked at the woman in front of the window. He was shocked for a moment, thinking that she would do something that was too extreme again.
Fia turned around and smiled coldly at Conrad.
“You want to give it to her, right? It has to be something that I don’t want anymore. Do you want it? Well, you can go out there and pick it up before giving it to her!”
Conrad was startled.
Even she herself never knew that she could be so intense and stubborn.
It seemed like the cowardly crybaby had finally grown up.
“And about the divorce…” Fia looked at Esme tauntingly. “I’ll never sign the papers as long as my
demands aren’t met! You want to marry him? Well, I’ll have to leave first!”
“You!” Esme gnashed her teeth. If it wasn’t because of Conrad’s presence, she would have hurled every imaginable insult at Fia already.
Fia then took out her phone and snapped a picture when they were still frozen from shock.
“I await the next time I’ll be able to take pictures of you two, perhaps in bed. Maybe Mr. Maxwell will be forced to give up everything during the divorce trial!”
“You’re dreaming!” Esme was so angry that she couldn’t stop trembling and her fingers dug deep into Conrad’s arm.
Conrad lowered his eyes and glanced at Esme warily.
“Conrad, even I feel bad for you. You have all of these thanks to your own hard work! This has nothing to do with her! How can she want to force you to give up on everything?! And you treat her so well too,
arranging for the best hospital and doctors for Aunt Echo!”
“Isn’t that something a husband should do?!” Fia said firmly.
Esme immediately said to Conrad after Fia shut her up. “I… I’m just feeling bad for you, Conrad. You treat her as family, but she wants you to leave with nothing.
When Fia saw Conrad merely looking at her coldly and not even bothering to stop Esme, she could feel the anger inside of her burn even stronger. She felt even more disgusted at them too.
“Trash!” She cursed as she turned and left.
When Silas saw Fia walk out, he greeted her. “Madam…”
Fia gave him an icy glance and said, “Don’t speak to me. Go clean up the trash inside!”
Did he look like a trash collector?
“Conrad, since when did her temper get so bad? And she even wants to take over the Maxwell household. My grandmother must be the one that taught her all this.”
Esme mumbled, despite the glee she felt in her heart. The more Fia acted like that, the more Conrad would dislike her!
“Do you really think I’m that stupid?” Conrad answered her coolly.
Esme raised her head and looked at him in disbelief. “What… What do you mean?!”
“Esme… You should keep your mouth shut about certain things,” Conrad said. He was very unhappy with how she tried to signal to him Fia’s ambition.
From his understanding, Fia was not someone like that.
“But she already said it just now…”
“Silas!” Conrad cut her off.
“Yes, Mr. Maxwell?” Silas walked in anxiously. He was worried that he was going to become fodder.
“Send Ms. Manning back to her home.”
“Didn’t you promise me you would accompany me today?”
Conrad forcefully pulled his arm away from Esme and said, “The person your grandmother arranged for you won’t be going to the Manning’s household for now.”
