“You don’t have to remind me again. I’ve never forgotten about it! I didn’t say I’d abandon you!” A wave of irritability surged into the man’s heart. He never ignored Yelan’s entrustment before he died, but he hated her repeated reminders.
Grace panicked upon seeing Elias’ state, trembling as she said, “Elias, don’t be upset. I have no other intentions; I’m just too afraid of losing you…”
He looked back at the girl behind him. This was Yelan’s only sister, and he could not let him down no matter what. After all, he died too tragically, and he died for him.
“Hey, I’ll take you back. You just got discharged and need some rest,” said Elias.
“Okay, I’ll listen to you. Don’t be upset. Please don’t abandon me.” Grace nodded obediently. It was rare for this man to behave so nicely because everyone knew how bad his temper was.
She walked out of the meeting room while following behind the man. Yet, when she thought of the hickeys on the corners of Elias and Amanda’s mouths, she felt as uncomfortable as a bug sting on her heart. Wait for this, Amanda! Don’t ever try to take Elias back or remarry him!
Over at the parking lot, when Helean saw Amanda like this, he couldn’t help but worry. “Amanda, are you okay? There’s no one here. Can you tell me what happened in the conference room just now? Did Mr. Winters do something to you?”
Anyone with a keen eye could tell that she had been humiliated based on her appearance. Still, he could not figure it out as Elias did not look like that kind of person. How could this be?
“I’m fine. Please apply for a leave on my behalf. I’m not feeling well and wanna head home to rest. I’ll go to the law firm in the afternoon.” She sat in the driver’s seat and drove away immediately
She was frustrated throughout the journey as her thoughts replayed the scene where she was under the man on the table back in the conference room. The kiss…
After returning home, she took off her torn clothes before heading into the bathroom to turn on the shower. She shut her eyes and felt the cold water pour, hoping it would wake her up.
Suddenly, she yelled out irritably, “Argh!”
How could I still feel something when that sc*mbag kissed me in the conference room? This cannot be! The same mistakes cannot be repeated!
The thought of the man ripping her clothes and kissing her passionately sent her blood pressure sky-high. After flushing herself with cold water, she exited the bathroom and changed into a new set of clothes. With some light makeup on, she was ready to return to the law firm. Can’t have people talking when I’ve just joined, right?
When Amanda arrived at Justice & Associates, she received a call from the nanny. “Hello, Miss Bailey. Something came up at home today, and I’m afraid I can’t pick up Aiden. Would you be able to do it? I won’t be taking the wages for today. I’m so sorry.”
Amanda looked through the day’s schedule and realized she could leave work on time in the afternoon, so she agreed. “Alright, I’ll pick him up.”
“Thank you, Miss Bailey. You’re such a nice person.”
After hanging up the phone, she continued her work. She had to speed up that day to pick up her kid from school. Before the end of school time, the preschool called, saying that Aiden had fought with another child at school.
Consequently, she hurried to the kindergarten and stopped at the gate when she saw Howard standing there. Why is he here? Is he picking up his kids too? Whose child is he picking up?
Just when she was wondering how to sneak in, he turned around with a lonely face and saw her figure at a glance. Instantly, he smiled and shouted, “Amanda!”
Her plan to hide from him failed, so she had no choice but to walk over with an embarrassed smile. “Grandpa, why are you here?”
On that topic, Howard became angry. “I want to see some lively children. If you hadn’t divorced, my little great-grandson would have gone to school by now,” he complained like a grumbling
Amanda could only laugh awkwardly.
“Why are you here? This is a kindergarten. Did you give birth to Elias’ child four years ago?” He suddenly became emotional, as if he wanted to see through her at a glance.
“No! I’m going there to… do something!” She was so frightened that she almost stuttered and pointed to the office building opposite.
Wow. He’s spot on. Her little heart was about to jump out, hoping he would not question her further and render her in a tough spot.
Hearing her answer, Howard sighed in disappointment and answered, “I thought you secretly gave birth to my little great-grandson.”
“I’m sorry for disappointing you, Grandpa.”
He waved his hand and replied, “Forget it. You’ll give birth sooner or later when you guys remarry. By the way, I’ll be having my 70th birthday in a few days. See you there.”
“Grandpa, I can attend your birthday banquet, but let’s forget about the remarriage. We have our separate lives now.” She took the chance to destroy his fantasy. Why is he always insisting we remarry?
“Okay, let’s not talk about the remarriage. You must come to my 70th birthday. Since you promised me, you must not back out! I must see you that day! Otherwise, I’ll send someone to tie you up! That’s it! I’m leaving!” As soon as Howard gave the order, he left without waiting for her reply.
This domineering and powerful attitude is comparable to Elias. It’s no wonder that the grandfather and grandson are alike. It turns out that their temperaments run in the family.
Anyway, Amanda finally breathed a sigh of relief as she could pick up her son after seeing Howard escorted into the car by the bodyguards. Then, she hurriedly paced toward the school.
Inside the classroom, Aiden’s small body stood against the wall, pouting in grievance with his puppy eyes full of defiance. Meanwhile, the teacher was holding another little boy, trying to appease him.
When Amanda came in, she saw the scene and immediately went over to hug her son, anxiously asking. “Baby, are you okay?”
The teacher, however, was harsh. “Aiden’s mother, your son hit another child, so how could he not be okay?”
Amanda ignored the teacher and patiently asked her son, “Why did you hit him?”
The little boy pouted and said in an aggrieved tone. “That’s because he said I don’t have a dad and. that I’m a wild child. Mommy, am I a wild child?”
Hearing that rendered her speechless. The pitiful tone of her baby left her stunned, feeling at sharp pain in her heart. She stood up indignantly and looked at the teacher beside her. “Excuse me. Did you teach them to use the word ‘wild child’ against my son?”
“Then, why did you only punish my son while coaxing the other in your arms?” Amanda’s anger surged. I cannot believe this.
“Since he was the one who started it first, and they couldn’t be separated, I had to-
