Mission To Remarry
The four of them then returned to the mansion.
Roxanne and the two children were so hungry that they gobbled up all the leftovers Madilyn brought from the restaurant.
After dinner, the children went upstairs to take a shower.
Madilyn cast a doubtful look at her best friend. “Why are you running away from him? I don’t get it. I thought you two had a divorce agreement? Why are you so afraid of him? And you didn’t tell me why you divorced him. What exactly happened in the last few years?”
After meeting her gaze, Roxanne lowered her eyes and hesitated for a moment. She decided to roughly tell Madilyn the story.
“Oh, my God! No, you didn’t!”
Never in a million years did Madilyn think Roxanne would drug Lucian and give birth to his children.
So that’s why she ran away when she heard his name!
Roxanne bit her lower lip and looked agonized. “I don’t want him to know about Benny and Archie. Besides, I’m still worried that he would still hold grudges against me for drugging him. People with an ident*ity like his can easily take revenge against me as long as he wants to. I wouldn’t be afraid of facing the consequences if I were alone. But now that I have two kids, I have to act responsibly.”
She flashed a self-deprecating smile and continued, “Maybe it’s just me overthinking. He might not even give a damn about it. I’m just a nobody anyway.” “That’s what you thought!” Madilyn knitted her brows. “I think he recognized your voice. When he went in just now, he asked where you were. It seems he was coming after you!”
Roxanne was stunned for a bit upon hearing that. She felt a prickly pain in her heart. He must have hated me for what I did that night. I bet that’s the only feeling he has for me.
Upon seeing how upset her best friend was, Madilyn consoled her. “Don’t worry, Roxanne. I’m sure you won’t bump into him so easily since Horington is a big city, and your jobs aren’t really related either.”
Roxanne nodded, hoping luck would be on her side.
Suddenly, Roxanne heard Archie’s and Benny’s voices from behind.
Roxanne and Madilyn immediately stopped their discussion and looked toward the stairs.
Archie and Benny had just taken their shower. There was still moisture in their hair, and their fair skin was dewy. The two little ones, who wore pajamas printed with cow spots, came downstairs.
They walked up to the women, tilted their heads upward, and gazed at them with wide eyes. “What are you two talking about?”
Madilyn squatted down and carried both cuties in her arms. “You two are so adorable! I like you so much! Come, let’s go home with Aunt Madilyn!”
Archie and Benny could not utter a word as Madilyn kept squishing their cheeks. Roxanne could not help but giggle.
She went up and rescued her two boys from Madilyn’s clutches.
Suddenly, she remembered something. “Oh, before I forget. Since I came back here in haste and would be busy working, I can’t take Archie and Benny with me all the time. Can you recommend me a kindergarten for these boys? And oh, I’ll need to find a nanny too.”
The boys did not say anything upon hearing what their mother said.
With their level of intelligence, they would not need to go to a kindergarten at all. But since Mommy is busy, we can only try our best to lessen her burden.
Madilyn thought about it for a while. “Yes! I do have a kindergarten in mind!” Roxanne looked at her. “Tell me about it.”
Madilyn said, “There’s a kindergarten for children from the elite families, and it’s pretty well-known in Horington. The cla*s*ses are exciting, kids will get to learn multiple languages, and the teachers are highly qualified. A lot of wealthy families would fight for a spot for their children. You won’t have to worry about big bullies in that school.” Roxanne instantly responded, “Really? Let me find out more about this kindergarten on the internet. If everything goes well, I wish to enroll Archie and Benny in the school right away!”
