Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 71
When Conrad saw how Fia was trying to be strong, he found it unpleasant.
He then said to Echo again, “Mom, I would like to apologize for everything that happened before this.
Echo looked at Conrad with mixed feelings. Her days were numbered.
Naturally, she wished that Conrad could protect Fia.
“Conrad… Fia has suffered a lot since she was little. I was selfish to hope that she could marry you. I was hoping that you could protect her from others so that she would not be harassed anymore.
“But everything you did lately… You did them to hurt her.”
Conrad could hear the disappointment in her words. He quickly said, “Don’t worry. I’ll take care of everything. I won’t let Fia get hurt again.”
“You’re a smart man. I don’t want to say too much to you. Before you’re divorced, I don’t want to see you and Esme together again,” Echo said to him in a serious tone. A tone that she very rarely used.
Fia turned to look at Conrad subconsciously.
He simply said, with a steady tone, “Alright. I promise you.”
“Fia,” Echo said as she patted Fia’s hand. “There are nurses taking care of me here. Go home with Conrad.”
After Fia and Conrad left the hospital, Echo got down from her bed and approached the window, using the wall as support. She looked at the people walking around below her, and her tears streamed down uncontrollably.
“Wait for me, Mom. Once I’ve arranged everything for Fia, I’ll go and see you.”
Once Fia got into the car, she glanced at Conrad who was driving.
‘Thank you, for saying what you did in front of my mom. Thank you for not revealing my lies.”
She simply didn’t want her mom to be sad anymore.
Conrad remained silent. “You’re my wife. I’m simply doing what I should.”
“Haha,. She smiled coldly. “Aren’t you worried that you won’t be able do as you promised in front of my mom?”
“Since I’ve promised her, I’ll do it.”
Fia closed her eyes and didn’t want to say another word.
When the two of them reached home, Mrs. Taylor pulled Fia to the side and said, “Madam Beryl is here. She brought a doctor along.”
“You’re quite weak. You should let the doctor take a look.”
“I’ve been looking at doctors at the hospital every day. I don’t want to see a doctor when I’m home!”
It was very rare for her to speak with such an adamant tone. “Conrad, can you please ask your mom to stop dragging me into any mess anymore?!”
Conrad had already found out from Mrs. Taylor that his mother would always find some medicine and
forced Fia to eat it. He was unhappy about it too.
“I can help you, sure. But let’s sleep properly tonight. Don’t fight.”
Conrad took her hand and led her into the living room.
“Why are you here, Mom?”
Beryl smiled when she saw her son, but her expression turned cold when she saw Fia.
“What else? I’m worried about you every day because you married a woman that can’t bear any children.”
She then pointed to a doctor next to her. “This is a doctor from my hometown. He’s very skilled at curing women with pregnancy problems. Let him give Fia a look.”
Fia simply hid next to Conrad. She didn’t even want to look at Beryl and the doctor from nowhere.
“Why are you hiding?!” Beryl yelled loudly. After she had fallen into the pond, she believed that her son would no longer be helping Fia.
Looking at how his mother was trying to start a fight, he was stunned. He frowned and wanted to say something, but Beryl cut him off and shouted, “You did nothing for the three years you married into the family. You can’t even bear a child! Are you trying to ruin our family lineage?!”
