Chapter 568 He Calculated Every Step
They sighed together as they sat next to each other. “I don’t see the point of getting married,” Abigail said to Luna. “I used to think that I had to marry someone if I loved them, but now… don’t even know who I love.” Despite her successful career, what about her personal life? The sudden appearance of family members had completely disrupted her life.
Luna leaned on Abigail’s shoulder as she stared at the ceiling and muttered, “You know, people in the past used to get married without much thought. Then, their lives would just go on. Eventually, they had children. But now, we’re in a dilemma because of love. Times are really changing. Before, people wouldn’t even dare to think about marriage like this. Now, we have expectations when we walk down the aisle.”
“It’s only natural to have expectations when our basic needs have been fulfilled. Otherwise, what are we living for?” Abigail said with a laugh. In her opinion, people work hard to make
for a better life. Life is short, and it would be a shame to live it as it is.
Luna let out a heavy sigh. “Ugh, this is so frustrating!”
“Talk to him,” Abigail suggested. If Luna didn’t want to get married, they could continue dating because maybe one day in the future, she would realize that he was the one. People’s opinions change over time; Luna might change her mind about something she is against
“I would like to do that, but I don’t think he has much patience.” Luna said, feeling distressed.
“Given Josh’s personality, he takes everything seriously. Since he chose to be with you, I’m guessing he probably feels that the sooner he marries you, the better,” Abigail voiced her thoughts.
Luna turned to her. “Okay, enough about me. What about you? How are things between you and Sean?”
A surprised Abigail looked back at her. “What about us?”
“You’ve been with him for so many years. If we add them all up, you’ve been on and off with him for about four years. Do you think it’s a good idea to marry him again?” Luna couldn’t
her curiosity. If Abigail returned to the Pearson Family, it would mean that she was engaged to Sean.
At the thought of this, Luna realized that Sean was truly a cunning man. Back then, it seemed like he was engaged to Kelly. Later, she found out from him that he had made it clear to the Pearsons that he was only going to marry their daughter. Looking back, he must have already known that Abigail was Lawrence’s daughter, not Kelly.
“I don’t know,” Abigail mumbled. Truthfully, it was a compromise on her part to start dating
Sean again. However, she was angry that he was siding with the Pearsons. At the same time, she knew that Sean was a businessman who always had a clear view of what would benefit him.
“As an outsider, I think he’s someone you can rely on for the rest of your life,” Luna said seriously. If she wasn’t Abigail’s friend, she believed that Sean wouldn’t have risked his life to go to a place like the Golden Triangle. When he did all those things, all the resentment she had for him in the past disappeared.
Abigail fell silent for a while and didn’t answer.
“What’s on your mind?” Luna asked, urging her to speak.
Abigail raised an eyebrow. “What else can I do? I’ll just let it be. There are so many things going on, and I can’t be bothered to think about this. I’ll just take things one step at a time.”
“That’s true. Being a human is more troublesome than it’s worth. You know, I’ve always thought it would be better to be born as a cat.”
Abigail giggled as she lay down and pulled up the sheets. “Let’s sleep. It’s pointless to think so much.”
Early the next morning, Analise prepared breakfast for Luna and Abigail before asking Luna
you think of about her plans for marriage. “You’ve been dating Josh for a while now. What do him?” she asked with a smile.
Since Luna had just had this conversation with Abigail the night before, she still felt a bit sensitive about the topic. So, when the conversation came up again in the morning, she felt a bit strange. “He’s okay.”
“Then it’s time to consider marriage. Have you decided when to get engaged?” Analise said, beaming.
Luna slumped on the table as she answered resignedly, “We’ve only been dating for a few months, so we don’t know each other that well yet. It’s too early to consider marriage.”
A frown appeared on Analise’s face. “You’ve known each other long enough. All you need is love.” While she lectured Luna, Abigail silently ate her breakfast.
“Grandma, we’ll take care of our own situation. You don’t have to worry about us so much,” Luna groaned in exasperation.
“Oh, hush. I’m only saying this for your own good,” Analise said. Then, she saw Cameron coming out of his room.
Great, the person she’s most concerned about is here to save us, Luna thought with relief. Analise beamed the moment she saw Cameron. “How was your date last night?”
Cameron blushed at the mention of his girlfriend. “It was nice. She’s really nice.” Since he wasn’t experienced with girls, he didn’t know which word would be appropriate. So, in his mind, ‘nice‘ was the perfect word.
The smile on Analise’s face widened. “My, my, I can rest assured when it comes to you because you’re the most obedient one here. Are you going on another date today?”
“Uh… It’s Monday today, and she has classes to attend,” Cameron answered honestly.
“Oh, is she a university student?” Analise hoped that he could get married sooner since they had feelings for each other.
“Yes, she’s in grad school.” He took a seat at the dining table.
A surprised Luna turned to him, gaping. “Are you dating a postgraduate student?”
“Is it weird that I’m seeing someone? What’s wrong with dating a postgraduate student?” He felt proud because he believed that he must have been blessed by his ancestors to actually date such an amazing girl, especially since he came from a humble background.
“Nothing. I simply believe that you are truly remarkable,” Luna complimented, wearing an expression of astonishment.
