Chapter 11 Secret Meeting
Adams took a deep breath to calm himself down, but he failed to suppress his anger.
His granddaughter had been married to Joshua for a year. But it turned out that Joshua had been loving another woman!
“So, in Joshua‘s eyes, Lexie‘s needs take priority over his duty for his wife!”
Cecilia smiled apologetically and said, “Lexie must have been in danger. I beg you to forgive Joshua.”
Adams laughed ironically. “In danger? Do you mean stomach ache? Wow, that was funny.”
Cecilia couldn‘t maintain the smile on her face.
Joshua had been out for the phone call for five minutes. Wlien he came back, Cecilia glared at him and asked, “Are you done? Apologize to Anaya and Adams and promise that you will never contact that woman!”
Joshua grabbed the car keys on the table and said, “I‘m going to take Lexie to the hospital.”
Anaya snorted with laughter, “What? Can‘t she go there by herself? Is she dying or something?”
Because of Cecilia and Adams‘s presence, Joshua wanted to be nice to Anaya, instead of arguing with her. He only glared at Anaya and left.
Cecilia was so angry that she was on the verge of passing out, with her hand covering her chest.
Cecilia shouted, “Joshua! Come back!”
Joshua didn‘t listen to her but closed the door.
Adams was wearing a cold face. He said, “Cecilia, you see, this is your son‘s answer. It‘s very clear. Since he loves someone else, Joshua and Anaya should not waste any more time on each other. I hope they can end this nicely.”
Cecilia opened her mouth but, in the end, she didn‘t know what to say.
Cecilia was very disappointed and mad at Joshua.
After Lexie hung up, she immediately asked someone to contact the doctor on duty at the nearest hospital. Lexie had made up a statement about her illness for the doctor to tell Joshua.
A few minutes ago, Lexie had asked Joshua where he was and wanted to have dinner with him. He told her that he had come to the hospital where Adams was staying with Cecilia.
She panicked instantly.
Cecilia was very picky and was dissatisfied with Anaya as her daughter–in–law.
However, Lexie was also clear that Cecilia didn‘t want Anaya and Joshua to divorce.
For one thing, Anaya and Joshua‘s marriage ensured the cooperation between the Dutt family and the Maltz family. For another, there must be some nasty rumors about Joshua and even the Maltz family if Joshua divorced.
Even so, Lexie had been waiting for Joshua and Anaya to break up for so many years that she would definitely seize this precious opportunity and stop Cecilia from taking Anaya back home.
Lexie quickly made up her mind and called Joshua. Lexie told Joshua that she was suffering from severe menstrual cramps and wanted him to come over to take her to the hospital.
Lexie knew that it would probably leave a bad impression on her future mother–in–law, Cecilia. But she had no choice.
When Joshua arrived, Lexie was curling into a ball on the bed with her hands covering her belly.
“Let‘s go. I‘ll take you to the hospital,” Joshua said as he hurried over to help her up.
exie nodded with difficulty. She looked like she was in a lot of pain.
she weakly said, “Joshua, I… I‘m so sorry. Sorry to call you at this late hour. I hope I didn‘t bother you, did ?”
Joshua said without hesitation, “It‘s okay. You‘re the most important one to me.”
Hearing this, Lexic lowered her head so that Joshua wouldn‘t see her smiling,
Yesterday at the restaurant, Joshua stared at Anaya for quite a while. Lexie was afraid that Joshua had fallen in love with Anaya after being with lier for a long time.
Now Joshua‘s answer told Lexie that she had overthought it.
Lexie was the love of Joshua‘s life and would always be!
After Joshua left, the ward quieted down.
Anava turned her back on Adams and did not dare to look at him.
A year ago, Anaya had said so confidently that Joshua was the love of her life, and she would live happily thereafter with him.
However, this marriage only brought her endless unhappiness.
It not only hurt her but also Adams.
“Anaya, come here and have a seat,” Adams called Anaya.
Anaya slowly turned around and sat down on the edge of the hospital bed.
Anaya said in a hoarse voice, “Grandpa, I‘m so sorry. It was all my fault. I‘ve put you and Riven Group in this situation.”
“Silly, tomorrow is unpredictable. No one expected this to happen.” Adams rubbed Anaya‘s head, saying, “I never blamed you, and you don‘t have to blame yourself for this.
“Darling, you deserve someone better than Joshua. It‘s lucky to disillusion and make up your mind today. It will be more difficult for you to leave him if you have a child. The regret would be unbearable then.”
Anaya held back her tears and gave Adams a big hug.
“Grandpa, thank you…”
Anaya and Adams chatted for a long time. At ten o‘clock in the evening, Anaya left after asking the nurse on night duty to take care of Adams.
In Anaya‘s previous life, Adams died alone. Anaya didn‘t want it to happen in this life, so she hired two people to take care of Adams in turns.
A few ininutes after Anava left. Adams was about to lie down and rest when he heard someone walking in the silent corridor.
Then, a tall man appeared at the door.
Adams recognized who it was and smiled as he asked kindly, “When did you come back?”
“Today.” The man stopped by the bed.
“Do you know that Anaya is going to divorce?”
Adams was silent for a long time before he said with a sigh, “If that thing didn’t happen to you back then, Anaya should have married to you rather than to that brat Joshua.”
“It’s not too late now,” the man said with a smile.
Anaya was an early riser. She got up at half past six in the morning and made breakfast.
When Anaya was living with the Maltz family, she was used to getting up early and making breakfast for Joshua every morning. However, Joshua seldom ate them.
After moving out, Anaya did not move back to the Dutt’s house. She rented an apartment near the hospital to visit
Adams more often.
It was an apartment of about 120 square yards with a kitchen and a bathroom. Compared to the villas Anaya used to live in, it was a little small, but it was enough for her.
Anaya fried an egg made a plate of vegetable salad and prepared a glass of milk. She put them on the table.
The phone that she placed in the living room rang.
Someone sent her several messages, suggesting how anxious he or she was.
Anaya picked up the phone and checked.
It was Aracely who had sent her a dozen messages.
The first one was a photo.
In the photo, Joshua was carrying Lexie down from the car.
The surrounding buildings looked familiar to Anaya. It was the Royal Hotel, the most famous hotel in Boston.
When Lexie just returned to America, she did not come back home but stayed at the Royal Hotel.
As for the rest of the messages, Aracely was swearing at Joshua, calling him an irresponsible bastard. Joshua went to the mistress’s place at such a late hour. Aracely said that Joshua must have slept with Lexie.
Anaya blew the photo up. Lexie seemed to have an intimate relationship with Joshua. Seeing this, Anaya was
But it was nothing compared to what Anaya had been through in her previous life.
Anaya might need more time to heal the trauma, but she would definitely linger over the past.
She would never cry because of Joshua again.
Anaya had loved Joshua for her entire teenage years.
The phone rang again, drawing Anaya back from her thoughts.
It was a call.
the moment Anaya answered the phone, she heard Aracely‘s angry voice.
“Anaya, did you see the message? Joshua, that scumbag, had a private meeting with Lexie last night! Many of my friends have reposted this photo on their social media. People in our circle all know that he cheated on you!
It‘s still early in the morning. They probably haven‘t gotten up yet. Get yourself ready. I‘m on my way to pick you up. Let‘s go catch Joshua deceitful now!
“Damn, I‘ll ask my brother to bring some friends of his to teach Joshua a lesson! They‘re all instructors of corbat!”
