Chapter 185 He Will be Lonely
In order to make Linda be recognized by the Wickam family, Monica suppressed her hatred for Elisa and admitted that she was a part of their family as well.
Nevertheless, such an acknowledgment was a peculiar one.
Even though she claimed that both Elisa and Linda were part of their family, Elisa had become Julia’s granddaughter. On the other hand, Linda was not acknowledged by Julia, and Monica did not take her in as her own daughter. Hence, Monica’s words implied that Linda would be Gareth’s wife in the future.
This time around, Julia did not retaliate. Instead, she merely said, “Let’s wait until Ms. Benett marries Gareth.”
Upon hearing that, Monica looked at her in awe. She actually didn’t object? In the past, she would have directly announced that Elisa is the only granddaughter-in-law that she acknowledges. But now… she has changed? Do we have a chance?
Even Linda looked at Julia in shock. She seems to have changed her mind after visiting the temple.
Both of them looked at Elisa simultaneously, thinking that she did not annoy them as much as before.
Monica smiled back, but when she did not see Gareth around, she asked, “Why is it just both of you? Where’s Gareth?”
Linda quickly looked at Julia, who replied, “He left.”
I didn’t see him again. Is it because of Elisa that he refuses to stay for lunch? Well, she disgusts him, of course. Linda clenched her fists silently.
Nevertheless, Monica’s voice broke her trail of thoughts. “Ah, if that’s the case, let’s get ready for lunch ourselves, then.”
Julia did not reply, but Elisa helped her to the washroom. “Grandma, I like the way it is right now. You are my grandmother, and nothing else could affect my mood. You are the only family I have left.”
With that, she implied that she did not even regard the Benett family as her family.
Julia’s eyelashes fluttered before she patted Elisa on the back. “Good girl.”
In the end, the four of them settled down at the dining table with different thoughts in their minds.
Elisa was the most comfortable person there because she no longer cared about them. She treated Linda and Monica as if they did not exist, and she even smiled at Julia as she took some food for her. “Take more vegetables, Grandma; they will prolong your life. Since Mr. Bridgewood asked you to stop overthinking, you should enjoy your life. I’m sure you have never-ending fortunes and happiness to enjoy.”
Upon hearing that, Julia nodded with a smile. “You’re right.”
Linda quickly added, “Yeah, Grandma. Now that your children and grandchildren are established, you just need to enjoy the rest of your life.”
However, Julia replied with a polite hum, showing no intentions of having a chat with her.
Even though she had decided to go with the flow, she still remembered what had happened the day before. To begin with, she already thought of Linda as a rather promiscuous woman; after what transpired the night before, her dislike for her deepened.
The smile on Linda’s face froze, but she could only hold her tongue.
At the same time, Monica quickly brought some food to Julia. “Linda is right, Mom. You should stop thinking about other problems and enjoy what you have right now.”
Julia shot a cold stare at her before saying, “I’ll be happy enough as long as you don’t defy me.”
Monica was at a loss for words after hearing that. She is clearly picking on us.
With an awkward smile, she looked at Elisa. “Liz, why don’t you talk to Mom about it? She only listens to you right now.”
What a rare scene it is to have Monica talk to me so politely.
Elisa merely smiled and looked at Julia. “Grandma, why don’t you stay over at my place for a few days? Even though it’s not as comfortable as your place right now, I could cook for you. What do you think?”
Julia immediately beamed widely, but she rejected Elisa’s suggestion. “It’s okay. Your Grandpa still returns at night. If I leave him alone, he’ll be lonely.”
