Chapter 180 He Was at Peace
Elisa washed up. Noticing the purple blue bruises under her eyes, she hid them with concealer so that she looked somewhat presentable.
She was going to Lumineer Temple today. It be inappropriate if she applied heavy makeup.
She drove all the way to the Wickam Manor. She entered the living room to see Julia already dressed, sitting on the couch waiting for her. Elisa smiled when she saw that Julia was in good spirits, “Let’s head out, Grandma.”
Julia smiled and nodded, “Just a second, dear.”
“Was there something else?” Elisa was puzzled.
“I’m waiting for someone.” Julia was being secretive.
Before she could wonder any further, she heard a car outside. She turned towards the sound when Julia said excitedly, “Let’s go! Let’s go right now!”
She stood and tugged on Elisa’s hand.
It was Gareth. Gareth was the one driving the car. He stayed in the car with no intention of getting out. Elisa’s eyes narrowed. She turned to Julia, “Grandma…?”
“Liz, it must be fate. Since Mr. Bridgewood said that Gareth is the…”
Reincarnation of her son that had passed away.
She hesitated and did not finish her sentence. “Then he should come with me so that Mr. Bridgewood can take a look at him.” She added excitedly.
Elisa did not know how to respond.
Grandma must have completely bought into what she had told her yesterday. She was bringing Gareth along to confirm what she had heard.
What could Elisa say?
Elisa sighed inwardly. Why could she not get rid of Gareth. More importantly, why didn’t Gareth feel annoyed by her continued presence?
They were divorced. So why was he still bothering her? Why didn’t he just go to work? He had a company to keep him busy and yet he was here, bring his grandmother and his ex-wife to a temple to hear about their past lives.
Elisa’s mood improved at the thought. Gareth must be feeling more annoyed that she did.
His discomfort made her feel so much better. She was willing to endure any awkwardness to witness this.
“Come, Liz. Gareth will drive us there.”
Elisa agreed and got into the car behind Julia.
Gareth was quiet. The door shut behind them, and he started to drive.
Elisa pursed her lips and stayed silent. Julia, on the other hand, was almost trembling with excitement. She held Elisa’s hand tightly and said in anticipation, “My dear girl, what do you think Mr. Bridgewood will say?”
Elisa blinked. “That’s up to fate, isn’t it, Grandma? We can’t force anything.”
“You’re right. Nothing should be forced.” Julia chuckled.
Gareth frowned. He didn’t like hearing this. He believed himself to be the master of his own fate.
Julia was in a great mood on the way there. She chatted nonstop with Elisa.
It was as if she had completely let go of what had happened. However, Elisa knew that that was just superficial. She would still hold on to that small sliver of hope. She’d only fully believe it once she heard it from Mr. Bridgewood’s own mouth. Right now, she was keeping herself from dwelling on it to prevent herself from disappointment.
Elisa saw through her actions and kept the conversation going.
Gareth, surprisingly, did not feel irritated by the sound of their talking. He drove silently.
As if he was as peace.
