Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 58
“But I was affected and now I’m distressed!”
“Everyone’s feeling distressed right now, especially Fia!”
Esme’s expression changed. She was running out of time. She had to drag him into bed or the result would be out of her control.
Fia was walking on the streets for a while before she finally reached out to catch a cab. However, just as she was getting into one, someone pulled her arm.
She turned around and saw a pair of amber eyes.
She wanted to get away from him as she could still feel her anger smoldering inside, but she simply didn’t have the strength to do it.
“Let go of me!”
“I’ll go back to the hospital to complete the checkup. Then we can go see your mother and grandmother together.”
“I don’t want to!”
“Don’t start a scene out here!” He forcefully pulled her into his car.
Fia knew she didn’t have enough strength to fight back. However, she also didn’t want to force it as she was worried that they might harm the child.
She sat in the passenger seat and glanced at the man getting into the driver’s seat.
She then said, “I never expected you to leave her behind.”
Conrad massaged his forehead and said, “Let’s make a promise.”
“When it’s just us, let’s not talk about Esme.”
“Oh? Is it because you feel guilty whenever you talk about her?”
“What do you mean?” Conrad gave her a glare before putting both his hands behind the wheel and
stepping on the gas.
Fia grabbed the safety handle tightly. “All you think about is her, but you were forced to become my husband. You can lie to yourself as long as we don’t talk about her. You can even pretend that I’m her, right?”
There was a screech when Conrad suddenly braked.
Fia’s body was thrown forward, but the safety belt dragged her backward almost immediately.
To the point that she could feel the tearing pain in her chest.
She knew that this conversation was cutting into him, but she didn’t want to stop.
For the past three years, before Esme came back, she could lie to herself and others.
But now that she replayed all those memories in her mind, there was only suffering.
“Do you remember the night we signed our marriage papers? You were drunk. You held me as you called out for Esme. As you made love to me. Aren’t you simply making me her replacement?
“Conrad… Do you think she had always believed that we’re married in name only? That all of this is just a pretend play?”
Conrad glared at Fia.
Fia continued sneering at him as she raised her head. “Since I didn’t get pregnant, she would definitely convince herself that you never touched me. That you’re still her white knight all those years ago.
He said sternly. If looks could kill…
“What? Hit a sore spot? Did you two spend the night together after she came back? Did she ask whether you slept with me? Your wife?”
Conrad was stunned.
He never knew that the crybaby could dare speak something like that.
“Maybe, she believed that you’re someone with low libido and the wife you married is only there for show. Or maybe…
Fia’s smirk was becoming wider. She was going to continue when the man suddenly moved toward her and kissed her lips maddeningly.
“You must be crazy, Fia.” He bit her lip and refused to let it go. “Do you know what kind of madness you’re spouting about?”
Fia pushed him away and glared into those amber eyes that were only inches away. She smiled and said, I’m mad? Or maybe you simply don’t dare to admit that you only made love with your wife by pretending that she’s someone else?!”
Conrad thought she didn’t care about that night. Maybe she didn’t know about it.
He never would have thought that she knew everything from the get–go and could even say it to him as if it was a joke.
Since when did the little wimp become like this?
