When There Is Nothing Left But Love Chapter 252
I see. How stupid of me! Of course it’s all because of Rebecca’s baby.
I looked at her and grinned. “You must have known about her pregnancy for quite some time, right? You didn’t mention this, because legally speaking, I am still Ashton’s wife, and you didn’t have a reason to break us apart. Now that my child is gone, you want to get rid of me, so you can bring Rebecca into the family because of the baby she’s carrying. I wonder if Ashton knows about your intention?”
Sally’s expression instantly changed. She did not like how straightforward I was, even though the things I said were exactly what’s on her mind.
“You’re right. Don’t we all make decisions after weighing all the pros and cons? Since your marriage with Ashton is doomed to fail anyway, why don’t you take this opportunity to free yourself?”
I nodded in agreement. What she said made sense, but somehow, I was not pleased to hear that.
After that, I turned my attention to my phone, which I had placed on the table, and said, “You heard it? If you agree, we shall make a trip to Civil Affairs Bureau and sign the divorce papers.”
Sally was taken aback when she realized Ashton was on the phone and heard what she said.
The color drained out of her pale, and she gave me a disdainful look.
Ashton, on the other hand, expressed his dismay in a deep voice. “Don’t ever allow others to tell us what to do. It’s our marriage, and we make decisions for ourselves. And above all, you should know my feelings for you.”
He then raised his voice, “I’m afraid your understanding of love is quite different from us, Aunt Sally. How much do you, as an outsider, know about our marriage, anyway?”
She froze instantly as she was dumbstruck upon hearing the word “outsider.”
Before she could defend herself, Ashton continued, “Next time, please mind your own business, Aunt Sally. You’re the daughter-in-law of the White family now, so it’s time for you to leave the Fullers alone. If possible, we don’t even have to keep in touch anymore.”
Ashton sounded harsh over the phone as if he wanted to sever ties with her.
After ending the call, Sally looked at me with her pallid face. “How dare you pull this trick on me?”
I smiled and shrugged my shoulders. “I just wanted to confirm if he wants to apply for a divorce too.”
A corner of my mouth quirked up, “Well, it looks like you’re doing this behind Ashton’s back when he’s not aware of anything. I’m glad he heard the conversation. Otherwise, we might start arguing over this unnecessary misunderstanding.”
I believe Sally was smart enough to know that we had identified her as a troublemaker who tried to wreck our marriage,
All of a sudden, she raised her voice. “Fine! I’ll leave your marriage alone, but Rebecca’s child belongs to the Fullers, and I’ll make sure the child gets the recognition he or she deserves!”
Once again, I nodded. “You’re right. I agree with yoù totally. But how certain are you that Ashton is the father to Rebecca’s child? You better investigate properly before acknowledging the child as a Fuller.”
Time was running out, and I still needed to gjab a quick lunch. With that, I picked up my handbag and smiled. “Oh yes, there’s something else you might not know. Do you know who caused the death of my child. Perhaps you can have a chat with Cameron or even Rebecca and see what they il tell you. It’s time for you to analyze the situation and not be fooled by what you see.”
Following that, I grabbed my bag and left the café.
Why on earth did she choose a cafe? I don’t need coffee for lunch. I need a proper meal, damn
I went down to the second floor and passed by a new restaurant. I could not help but giggle at its name – The Unpalatable.
To come up with such an unpleasant name, the proprietor must be a young and wealthy risk-taker.
Out of curiosity, I decided to order takeout from them. Surprisingly, both the food and the lunchbox they used looked pretty good.
I supposed Marcus had not had his lunch too, so I returned to order another takeout.
Lo and behold, I bumped into Cameron and Rebecca outside the restaurant.
The mother-daughter duo, who was probably shopping in this mall, was so well dressed that I could hardly tell one of them was pregnant.
What a blessing it was to be rich.
I was just a stone’s throw away from them, so if I could see them, I was sure they could see me too.
Under normal circumstances, we should avoid each other. After all, none of us wished to make a din in this public area.
But since there were not many people in the mall, the two of them noticed me right away.
Rebecca walked up to me with a look of haughty disdain. “I wonder if there are any places in this world that I can go without seeing your irritating face.”
