Mission To Remarry
Roxanne had just gotten off work when she heard the employees in the research inst*itute discussing Lucian and Aubree’s marriage.
“Mr. Farwell is so attentive! He actually took care of his fiancé for the entire night. If it were my boyfriend, he would never do so.”
“Most importantly, he‘s handsome and rich. His fiancé is beautiful as well. She resembles Dr. Jarvis quite a bit, so she must be a beauty!”
Similar sentiments drifted into the air.
The group of researchers chatted as they walked. When they caught sight of Roxanne, they even bid h er farewell. “See you tomorrow, Dr. Jarvis.”
Smiling, Roxanne answered them one by one.
However, she couldn’t help feeling puzzled upon hearing their discussion.
Lucian took care of his fiancé the whole of last night? But he had been with me the entire time last nig ht. When did he meet up with Aubree?
Just when she found it strange, Colby came up to her from behind. “Are you free tonight? How about having dinner together?”
Abruptly snapping back to her senses, Roxanne flashed him an apologetic smile. “I still need to rush over to the kindergarten to pick my kids up, so I’m afraid I’ll have to take a rain check. Another day, perhaps. When the project concludes, I’ll treat everyone to a meal.”
When Colby heard that, a glimmer of disappointment flashed across his eyes, but he said nothing in the end. Talking about the project, he exited the research inst*itute with her.
As Roxanne didn’t drive to work, she could only hail a taxi by the roadside.
A moment later, Colby’s car slowly came to a stop in front of her. “Did you not drive?”
In response, Roxanne shook her head.
“Where are you going? I’ll give you a ride. I don’t have anything to do tonight anyway, and it isn’t easy to get a taxi here.” Colby’s smile was warm and gentle.
Roxanne hesitated for a second. She glanced at the time, only to see that it was indeed time Archie and Benny got off school. Thus, she didn’t decline but opened the car door and got into the car.
No sooner had she settled into the car than she received a call from Harvey again, inquiring about the project’s progress.
She explained things to him briefly and succinctly.
After hanging up the phone, she was just about to put her phone away when a push notification popped out.
The headline read: Mr. Farwell drove his fiancé to the hospital in the middle of the night and kept her company the entire night.
Seeing that, she inexorably recalled the situation last night and the employees’ discussion earlier. Unbidden, she tapped open the link.
Right after doing that, two blurry photos entered her line of sight.
The instant she saw the photos, she froze. She didn’t even have to tap into them to tell that the woman in there was her.
The first photo was taken when she was delirious with a high fever, probably when Lucian carried her fr om the car to the hospital.
Even when she woke up in the hospital, she was still in the man’s arms.
However, she didn’t expect them to look so close in the photo. That aside, the man seemed to exert particular care when carrying her. The second photo was taken when she got into the car with Estella in her arms, while Lucian stood at the side.
She had no idea where the person who snapped the photo hid that neither of them perceived his prese nce.
Besides, the paparazzo who published that news evidently couldn’t distinguish between her and Aubree that such a misunderstanding transpired.
Fortunately, the photos were exceedingly blurry, so much so that only those closest to her could tell that the woman in them was her.
With her brows creased, Roxanne continued scrolling downward, only to see that the comments below were all envious of her because of Lucian’s attentiveness toward her.
Little did they know that she didn’t feel the least bit happy about it.
After looking through them for a while and ascertaining that no one realized that the woman in the photos wasn’t Aubree, she put away her phone with mixed emotions.
Hoping to avoid unnecessary trouble, she didn’t plan on clarifying things.
Instead, she merely found the entire misunderstanding rather amusing.
