“Mr. Lopez, who is… Avery asked as she saw another woman following behind Alastor.
“Hello, Mrs. Zahn. My name is Felicia. I’m Alastor’s secretary. Felicia took the initiative to step forward before explaining with a smile. She wanted to make a good impression of herself.
Basically, it was to build a foundation of connections for her to open an art exhibition in the future.
Felicia had always been a self-important person. She had always thought that she was better than Anastasia.
“If I can take Alastor away from Anastasia, I can definitely outperform her in my career too,” Felicia thought.
Anastasia smiled awkwardly. Apologetically, she said. “Sorry, Mr. Zahn and Mrs. Zahn. I’m not feeling well. I’m afraid I can’t keep you company for dinner tonight. If you are not in a hurry to leave, let’s have coffee together tomorrow afternoon.”
Anastasia spoke with a gentle voice.
Avery was a quick-witted person. She knew that Felicia was not merely a female secretary.
Understandingly. Avery nodded and patted Anastasia’s hand. “Annie, I need a painting for the top floor. I want to consult you about it. Let’s meet in private and talk about it tomorrow afternoon.”
“What is the decoration style of your house, Mrs. Zahn? It just so happened that I majored in design. I might give you some ideas.” Felicia took the initiative to suggest.
It was obvious that she wanted to replace Anastasia in every aspect.
Alastor furrowed his brows, Sure enough, he also felt Felicia’s words were inappropriate. However, he did not say anything. Avery was a little displeased. “Mr. Lopez, are you bringing a female secretary to the family dinner?”
Felicia stood behind Alastor awkwardly.
“It’s true that I do not hold any title now. Regardless of how strong my ability is, people will look down upon me,” Felicia thought.
“I must make Alastor file a divorce as soon as possible. Then, I can marry him and have my title,” Felicia continued silently. “Tasked her to send Annie home.” Alastor said in a low voice.
He wanted Felicia to leave too.
However, Felicia was unhappy. “Mr. Zahn and Mrs. Zahn are not outsiders, Alastor. You have already divorced her…” Alastor’s expression darkened instantly, and he looked at Felicia coldly.
Felicia panicked. Internally, she remarked, “I just… don’t want to be looked down upon by the others.”
Anastasia laughed ironically. Looking at Alastor, she thought. “Well, I’m not the one who said it.”
“Divorced? Henry and Avery looked at Alastor in shock. “This is… When did this happen?”
“It’s still confidential. My grandma is in poor health, so it can’t be made public. Alastor explained in a low voice, gesturing for Henry and Avery to take a seat. “It’s inappropriate to talk about my family matters in public. I brought Anastasia here because Mrs. Zahn said that she liked Anastasia. I didn’t expect her to be unwell”
Anastasia took a deep breath. She turned around and wanted to leave.
Jason, come and have a seat. Let me introduce you.” Avery told Jason to come over.
Nevertheless, Jason’s gaze was fixed on Anastasia the whole time. It was as if he was silently asking her why she had not mentioned her divorce to him..
“Well, fair enough. Why should she tell me? There’s nothing between us,” Jason thought.
“Mrs. Zahn, I’ll take Annie home.” In front of everyone, Jason held Anastasia’s wrist and took her out of the private room. Anastasia did not resist. She walked out numbly as Jason led her out.
“Anastasia and Jason are in a relationship now.” Seeing that Henry and Avery were confused, Felicia took the opportunity to explain with a smile. Then, Felicia sat next to Avery, which was supposedly the seat of Alastor’s wife.
Avery felt a little awkward. Yet, seeing that Alastor did not give any explanation, she did not probe further.
She turned to look at Henry and whispered, “Anastasia, bless her.
“Yeah Henry nodded awkwardly. “Alastor, we won’t ask about your personal affairs with Anastasia. You two have been married for so many years. Even after the divorce, she is still willing to cooperate with you in taking care of Penelope and agreed to attend the family dinner tonight. It’s not easy for her. I hope you’ll continue to get along with her well regardless of your status.”
Alastor nodded. “Anastasia is wonderfully good.
Sure enough, Anastasia had always been great. It was a pity that Alastor did not love her.
On the way back. Anastasia’s mind was blank.
Jason was also silent all the way.
Instead of taking Anastasia home, he drove to Lumonburg.
When Anastasia came back to her senses, Jason had already driven to Hillscester Island.
That was where the most lavish and expensive luxury houses were located in the center of Hork City.
“Why are we here?” Anastasia turned to look at Jason.
“I have… a friend who likes your painting style. I need your help to have a look at the home decoration.” Jason uttered softly.
“Oh.” Anastasia nodded.
“When did it happen?” Jason asked.
“The day after you misunderstood Alastor’s domestic violence.” Anastasia looked down and added, “We’ve only signed the divorce agreement. We’ve yet to file for the certificate.”
“What is his demand?” Jason tightened his grip on the steering wheel.
“Waiting… for the DNA paternity test results. Anastasia lowered her head and looked at her belly.
“He…” Jason suddenly stepped on the brake. Obviously, he was full of rage.
“Alastor thought that the child was not his?” Jason pondered.
“Jerk!” Jason swore inwardly.
done.” Anastasia smiled. Shortly after, tears welled up in her eyes uncontrollably.
Jason did not siz
anything anymore. He parked his car by the roadside, got out of the car, and opened the door for Anastasia. Then he held and led her to the luxurious mansion. “The scenery here is impressive. Do you like it?”
Anastasia shook her head.
To her, regardless offul the thing was, it would be pointless to like something that did not belong to her.
