Chapter 154 Of the Same Mind
Julia looked at Elisa with concern. If it weren’t for the guests around them, she would have lifted Elisa’s skirt to check her knees.
Meanwhile, Linda’s expression suddenly turned pale.
Elisa! Damn it!
Even Shirley hesitated about showing Linda’s present. She only undid the ribbons but did not open the box so that she could easily show the present when it was her turn.
Rachel chuckled and said, “Old Madam Wickam, the abbot of Lumineer Temple said you should place this jade peacock ornament in your bedroom. It will bless you with longevity.”
Julia nodded with a smile. “I sure will. Jade is known to bring good luck, and this ornament has been blessed. It is a very meaningful gift to me.”
Then, Julia held Elisa’s hand. “Elisa, thank you so much for this gift. But you must never do something like this again, okay? You mustn’t hurt yourself for my sake.”
Elisa smiled and shook her head. “Grandma, it’s what I wanted to do. After all, you are my grandmother.”
Julia chuckled. “Yes, that’s right, my sweet child. Come and sit beside me.”
Darren looked at Elisa with an astonished expression. She did that willingly for her?
Then, he turned to look at Julia and was relieved to see her genuinely happy. It doesn’t matter as long as she is happy. Furthermore, today…
Darren seemed gloomy as he took a sip from a glass of wine.
Jerry looked at Elisa with a smile, “Elisa, thank you.”
Elisa smiled too and said, “Don’t worry about it. It’s nothing.”
“I’m lucky to have such a wonderful granddaughter!”
Julia held Elisa’s hand and refused to let go. She seemed to have forgotten about Linda.
However, Shirley would not let Julia forget. She smiled and said, “Old Madam Wickam, we have only presented one gift. There’s still Linda’s present left. Would you like to look at it?”
Linda breathed in and suddenly did not feel like revealing her present. No matter how expensive her present was, it could not compare to Elisa’s gift.
Damn it! I didn’t expect that b*tch to do this!
On the other hand, Shirley’s eyes flashed with a sudden idea. “Wow, what a coincidence! Linda also went to Lumineer Temple. Unfortunately, after hearing about the requirements, she was unable to perform them due to her health conditions. Therefore, she had no choice but to select this present for you. So, Old Madam Wickam, you mustn’t dislike her present on the account of her weak health.”
The crowd instantly understood what Shirley meant. That’s right. Linda has weak health so she could not do what Elisa did. After all, it is Gareth’s fault that Linda’s health became like this!
Linda was nervous, but she could finally breathe a sigh of relief thanks to Shirley’s explanation. As expected, Shirley is useful. She helped me in this critical moment.
Julia smiled. “Of course.”
Despite saying that, one could still sense her disinterest in Linda.
Julia had never liked Linda and was suspicious about her having ever been in a coma. However, Julia still could not find any evidence against Linda, so she did not bring up the matter.
Meanwhile, Shirley chuckled. “Linda had been searching for the right gift for a long time, hoping to find something that you would like. Thankfully, she found it!”
“Since Linda had worked so hard to prepare the gift, let’s have a look.” Monica did not wish for Elisa to get all the glory. Thus, she voiced her anticipation to see Linda’s gift.
On the other hand, Rachel sneered secretly and said, “Yes, yes. Let’s open the present and see whether Elisa and Linda think the same!”
