Chapter 32 Thunderstorm
Elisa opened the door to see a slender figure.
Gareth stood up and walked toward the door too.
Elisa curled her lips and turned to look at Gareth. “Oh well, it’s not my paramour but your mistress. How do you feel, Mr. Wickam?”
Linda narrowed her eyes. Mistress? I can turn you, Gareth’s official wife, to a mistress in the snap of a finger!
Gareth’s face darkened even more as he stared at Linda in displeasure and asked, “What brings you here?”
Linda answered worriedly, “I called your buddies just now. Initially, I wanted to discuss some matters with you, but I heard that you aren’t in a good mood today. I was worried, so I asked them for your whereabouts. I’m worried that there might be some misunderstandings, so I rushed over. Elisa, Garry, please talk things out if there’s any problem. I just hope there won’t be any misunderstandings between you guys.”
Elisa smiled. “It doesn’t matter. He’ll be able to marry you soon. I’m just his ex-wife, so I won’t cause any impact. Dear Linda, we’re cousins, so of course I won’t snatch away your man. If I did, that would be very shameless of me!”
Gareth’s expression was so frigid that it was as if he could turn the house into an igloo.
Truth was, what Elisa had just said was exactly what he had said to her in the past.
Linda was startled. She knew Elisa was implicitly insulting her. So what if you’re insulting me now? Gareth will be mine sooner or later, and he can only be mine. You’re just a passer-by in his life, Elisa!
It was as if Elisa was playing with Linda’s head. Just as Linda was gloating inwardly, Elisa changed the topic. “But…”
Linda’s expression turned solemn as Elisa shrugged resignedly and continued, “I’m looking forward to divorcing Gareth. If he’s willing to, we can get the certificate of divorce immediately. Thereafter, you guys can get your certificate of marriage done. But what should I do? Your dear Garry is unwilling to. I’m not sure if it’s because he still can’t get over me, his ex-wife.”
Linda was flabbergasted. Clenching her fists, she squeezed a smile and said, “What nonsense are you talking about, Elisa? Mr. Wickam and I are just friends. You shouldn’t bring about a divorce casually.”
In fact, Linda was frustrated that Gareth still hadn’t divorced Elisa officially.
On the other hand, Elisa almost wanted to roll her eyes at Linda.
Perceiving no response from Elisa, Linda looked toward Gareth with a gentle smile. “Garry, thank you for all that you’ve done for me. I have no regrets saving you at that time. I was too obsessed with you back then, and hence I asked if you would marry me. Garry, since you’ve married my sister, please treat her nicely. I won’t disrupt your husband-wife relationship.”
With that, she lowered her head and pretended to conceal her sorrow. Even her tightly pressed lips were trembling. It seemed as if she was more than happy to see Elisa receive happiness but was agonized to give up Gareth. She expressed the complicated emotions so perfectly that one could hardly see through her acting.
With a stern look, Gareth retorted, “Cut the nonsense. There’s nothing between her and I, and I’ll divorce her.”
Elisa took a deep breath. “Since there’s nothing between us and you’re going to divorce me, please get out of here immediately! Go ahead to roll in the hay with her but don’t dirty my place!”
“Elisa!” Gareth bellowed.
“Elisa… H-How did you change so much?” Linda shook her head in disbelief.
Wearing a half-smile, Elisa stared at the two uninvited guests who refused to leave. “If you guys are fond of my place, I can leave this house for you as a compensation for our divorce, Mr. Wickam. You guys may stay, and I’ll leave.”
Elisa took out her phone and dialed a series of numbers.
Gareth’s expression turned ghastly the moment he saw the numbers.
