Mission To Remarry
After Sonva had a talk with Lucian, she returned home. The first thing she did was call the Pearson residence.
After the news was released, Aubree refused to go into the office and hear all the employees gossip ab out how good Lucian looked with Roxanne in the photos. Thus, she decided to stay home for the next t wo days.
When Sonya called, Aubree was right next to Gina, “I‘ve already spoken to Lucian. Tell Aubree not to worry. This won‘t happen again. Just rest easy and wait for the engagement!” said Sonya over the phone.
Gina glanced over at Aubree and gestured for her to answer.
Aubree adjusted her mood. In a polite tone, she said, “Thank you, Mrs. Farwell.”
Hearing her voice, Sonya was stunned. Guilt washed over her heart when she thought about how Lucia n had mentioned he had no intention of fulfilling the marriage contract with her. “Aubree, I‘m sorry you have to go through this.”
Aubree‘s expression turned ugly. However, her words remained polite. “I‘m fine, Mrs. Farwell. As long a s I can be with Lucian, I am willing to bear with all these.”
Sonya felt bad for her. “Don‘t worry. No matter what, I will only acknowledge you as my daughter-in-law. You can forget about the news yesterday. Everyone thinks the woman in the photo is you anyway, so no one will say anything.”
Aubree responded with more thanks. After some small talk, the call ended. Aubree could finally let her heart down. However, when she recalled how intimate Lucian and Roxanne looked in those two pictures, she couldn‘t help but feel her anger rise.
Previously, during Alfred‘s birthday celebration, Roxanne had already humiliated her once.
Now, she almost ruined Aubree‘s engagement. It seems like I have to teach that b*tch a lesson. She needs to be put in her place! After thinking about it all night, Aubree went to wait by the entrance of the kindergarten the next day.
She watched as Roxanne dropped Archie and Benny off. When she turned around to go back to her car , Aubree quickly followed behind her. She strode over and opened Roxanne‘s front passenger seat doo r.
Roxanne automatically a*s*sumed it was Lucian. She raised an eyebrow and looked over. When she saw who it was, her face turned solemn. “What do you think you‘re doing, Ms. Pearson?”
Aubree smirked. “Nothing. I just wanted to have a chat with you. Are you free now, Ms. Jarvis?”
Roxanne could already guess what she wanted to talk about. With a frown, she answered, “Sorry, but I‘ m busy. I don‘t have time to chat.”
“You don‘t even know what I want to say, but you‘re in such a hurry to reject me. Could it be that you‘re feeling guilty, Ms. Jarvis?” Aubree asked mockingly.
Hearing that, Roxanne‘s face stiffened. She turned to meet Aubree‘s eyes. “I have work in the morning, so I‘ll only be free at noon. Since you‘re the one who suggested a talk, you can pick a place. I‘ll be there.”
The only reason she rejected Aubree was that she felt like she had already drawn a clear line with Lucia n. She was not interested in being drawn into Aubree and Lucian‘s relationship again.
However, considering the fact that Aubree had taken things that far, she would only get worse in the future.
Roxanne decided she might as well just clear things up now.
Seeing that she had agreed, Aubree no longer pestered her. She opened the car door and got down.
Watching her figure disappear from her line of sight, Roxanne suppressed the confusion in her heart. She started the car and headed toward the research inst*itute.
These two days were a critical period for the project she was handling. Thus, she was completely swamped with work the entire morning.
By the time she got done and took a look at her phone, she realized it wasn‘t long before it was time for her to meet Aubree at the designated time.
Roxanne did not delay. She quickly got into her car and set off.
