I’m certain! Back then, I saw her at the hospital, thinking she was really hot. It’s a pity she went in for an abortion. Do you think I’d forget such a hottie? But it seems like she’s even hotter than before. Although she’s beautiful, she’s toxic We can’t get involved for the sake of our well-being” Lazarus was completely immersed in his world as he talked to himself.
At this moment. Elias mind was filled with the scene from four years ago. What about our child? Are you that heartless? The woman’s pitiful and sorrowful voice echoed in his mind, but he paid zero attention back then, only wanting to pressure Amanda into signing the divorce agreement quickly.
Was Amanda really pregnant back then? But I’ve never touched her, so where did the child come from? Was it mine!
“Hey! I’m talking to you. What’s on your mind?” Lazarus had been going on for a while, only to realize that Elias wasn’t concentrating. The next second, Elias turned around and rushed into the
“Hey! I’m still talking here. Where are you going?!” No matter how he shouted, Elias didn’t even look back. The way he sprinted anxiously seemed as if he had something more important than life itself.
On the other hand, Amanda was walking toward a private room, for she had a meeting with a client tonight. After glancing at the time, she thought to herself, I’ll try to finish the meeting within an hour so that I can go home and put Aiden to sleep.
Just as she was about to enter the private room, a figure rushed toward her and pulled her aside. unexpectedly.
“Ouch!” Her body was forcefully pressed against the wall, causing her back to ache. She looked up while furrowing her brows, only to realize it was Elias. Immediately, her anger flared up. “What are you doing? Are you crazy?!”
While pressing her against the wall, he stared at her eyes intently and gasped for breath as if he had run all the way. However, he simply stared at her without saying a word.
What the hell?! She struggled to push him away, but he held her firmly against the wall, rendering her unable to move. “What the f*ck do you want? Are you trying to annoy me? Is this your way of seeking revenge because I let Grace misunderstand us? You-”
Before she could finish her words, he suddenly asked. “Were you really pregnant four years ago?”
She froze in place upon hearing that, her eyes widening. How did he know? At once, she panicked. Her palms turned sweaty, and every nerve in her body tensed up. Does he know about the child? Is he going to take my baby away?
Noticing her silence, he angrily shouted at her, “Speak up! Did we have a child four years ago Were you really pregnant? Did you go to the hospital for an abortion?”
“Didn’t you refuse to believe me? Why are you asking me this now? She wanted to push him away, but he seemed possessed at that moment, desperate to seek an answer.
“Answer me! This is the last time I’ll repeat my question. Were you really pregnant four years ago? Was it mine?”
Amanda was slightly startled, feeling that if she didn’t say anything, she wouldn’t be able to get through tonight. As such, she pretended to remain calm and countered, “Whose child could it have been?”
“But I don’t remember ever touching you, so how did you become pregnant with my child?” Elias couldn’t seem to figure this out. No matter how he searched his mind for any recollection of when he had touched her, he couldn’t remember anything at all.
When she heard his words, a bitter and desolate laugh escaped her lips. After four years, he still hasn’t changed one bit. He’ll never admit that he has touched me.
“I just want to know why you’re suddenly so hung up on this question now, Elias. You doubted me like this four years ago, and now you’re doubting me again. We’ve already divorced, so why are you asking me this?”
As she recalled everything from four years ago, she wanted nothing more than to rip the man in front of her to death. He was incredibly heartless for using all sorts of despicable tactics to force me into getting a divorce.
As he held her slender shoulders tightly, a glimmer of anticipation appeared in his black eyes. “So… where is the child?”
At this moment, she couldn’t help but swallow nervously. As expected, he was asking about the child. Although she was extremely nervous, she remained calm on the outside, afraid that he might see through her. “I aborted it. When you forced me to divorce, I went to the hospital and had it done.”
For a slight moment, she seemingly saw a hint of disappointment in his eyes, and he appeared to be hurt.
Suddenly, Elias felt his heart wrench. I had a child four years ago, but it was aborted. Not only that, I was the one who forced Amanda to do it. I never knew that she would get pregnant.
When Amanda saw his despondent expression, she thought, Did he believe me?
Gradually, he released his grip on her shoulders and asked in a deep voice, “Did it hurt…… during the surgery?”
Hearing his question, she couldn’t help but laugh sarcastically. “What do you think? Did you think. it would be comfortable?”
“Do you hate me?”
She was momentarily taken aback, then replied. “To the core”
His emotions were incredibly complex at that moment. I indirectly caused the death of my own child. Had he survived, he would probably be in preschool by now….
Suddenly, Elias lost control of his hot temper again. “Why didn’t you explain it to me back then? Why didn’t you show me the ultrasound? How am I supposed to believe you with just a pregnancy test?”
Hearing his words, she nearly laughed out of anger. Is this se*mbag blaming me now? Where did he find the confidence to be so self-righteous?Smack! Amanda mercilessly slapped the man’s handsome face, and he turned his face to the side. “Elias Winters! What right do you have to say such things to me now? How dare you blame me! You brought another woman home and told me she was pregnant, asking me to divorce you and get lost. Do you know how I felt at that time?”
He had no comeback. As he closed his eyes, he regretted yet another matter in his life.
“You told me to stop pestering you and to be dignified, so how could I explain anything to you? You never believed I would get pregnant. How could I have explained it? Tell me, how was I supposed to do that?”
The tall figure of the man standing in the corridor looked as though it was overwhelmed by loneliness and desolation.
“The child has been aborted, and there’s no point in talking about this now.” After she regained her composure, she adjusted her emotions and turned to enter the private room. She still had to meet with her clients and return home to be with her baby tonight. She couldn’t afford to waste even a single second.
As the door closed, the entire world seemed to descend into a profound silence.
Elias slammed his fist forcefully against the wall. It emitted a muffled sound, and blood soon. flowed from his knuckles. It hurts! Of course, it would hurt! That was my child! He never imagined becoming a father briefly four years ago, but he simply abandoned the child. How did she feel when she went to the hospital alone to get the abortion? She must hate me to the core….
