Chapter 182 You Still Don’t Understand
The temple was widely similar to other temples, but it was slightly different if one walked to the back.
The abbot, Malcolm Bridgewood, did not live in the temple; instead, he had a separate space of his own.
After walking on a stony path for half an hour, they finally reached their destination.
Elisa had been supporting Julia physically all this while, for fear that the walk might tire her out.
However, Julia’s spirit had been quite positive on this day, and she also seemed exceptionally healthy. Judging by her brisk pace, she seemed to be handling the walk better than a younger person.
When they reached the private room, the monk told everyone, “You’re welcome to enter here now.”
They nodded back at him politely before walking into the room together.
Initially, Malcolm was sitting on the chair, but he immediately got up and bowed to them the moment he saw them. “Welcome, my guests.”
Julia put her hands together and bowed to him.
Elisa did the same, but Gareth frowned. Not wanting to disappoint Julia, he followed suit as well.
Elisa curled her lips slightly in satisfaction when she saw that he was forced to do something against his will.
When he turned around and saw her quiet smirk, coldness seeped into his eyes immediately.
“My dear guest, I already know the reason for your visit today. I only have one piece of advice for you – just let everything take its natural course and don’t try to force it; this is life. As winter passes and spring awaits us, everything is already planned for us. I can’t reveal too much to you, for it’s all God’s will. My only wish is for you to put your worries beneath you, for that is the only way you can live a long and prosperous life.”
Julia had been listening to him intently, and her eyes lit up when she heard that.
So my son has reincarnated into my family again – I’ve seen my grandson grow up with my own eyes. Sure enough, Elisa did not lie to me!
Julia’s spirits soared high as she nodded gratefully. “Thank you so much, Mr. Bridgewood. I will definitely take it easy from now onward!”
He nodded at her with a smile, looking as though he no longer intended to continue the conversation.
But… Julia could not help looking at Elisa and Gareth next to her. She hesitated for a moment before saying, “I… have something to ask you privately, Mr. Bridgewood. Is this a good time?”
“Feel free to do so, but I shall only answer when I can.”
She nodded quickly with a smile. Then, she turned around to speak to both of them, “Wait for me outside.”
“Grandma.” Elisa looked worried, but Gareth dragged her outside without another word.
Her expression slightly changed, but Julia merely smiled at her. “Just follow him.”
Just like that, she was pulled out of the room by Gareth.
“Why do you obey her wishes? What if she realized something after asking a few more questions? If that happens, all our efforts will be wasted, and she will be even more heartbroken.”
“Since Mr. Bridgewood is willing to help you, why would he tell her the truth?” With that, he shot a cold glance at her, leaving her speechless.
At this moment in the private room, Julia looked at Malcolm with religious fervor in her eyes. “Mr. Bridgewood, that was not the main reason for me to come here today. I would just like to ask if the young ones who came with me today have a chance to be a couple again?”
Looking at the earnest glimmer in her eyes, he sighed helplessly. “It all comes down to fate. I would suggest you not force anything and just go with the flow.”
He was implying that he could not come to a conclusion about that because it all depended on fate.
Julia was instantly disappointed, but she still gave a nod in the end. “I see. Thank you for the advice, Mr. Bridgewood.”
“I think you still don’t understand what I mean, madam.” He looked at her peacefully.
