Chapter 195 Mutation 1
Charlie saw Caitlin ‘s car leave, and he drove back to let her get in the car.
“Stop hanging your head down and go back to work.”
From Charlie’s point of view, this is the inevitable problem that you will encounter when you marry into a wealthy family. Regardless of what the other party thinks, you can live your life at your own pace. How did Charlie know about the complicated relationship between them.
Serena got into the car and put on her seat belt without saying anything, feeling exhausted. She knew in her heart that even if she and Penn wanted to be together again, even if Penn could break off the relationship with Humphery Family for her, there was no possibility of a peaceful life between them, and she was disheartened at this time.
Charlie took her back to the law firm, saw her listless, and introduced a project to divert her attention, which was a financing project of a real estate company.
He said, “The real estate project of Lioson Innovation you worked on last time was very successful. In the future, you can do professional and refined projects in the real estate industry. I have already discussed this financing project in the early stage, and you are responsible for the specific implementation. ”
“Okay, thanks Lawyer Charlie Jordan.” It’s good to be busy, there’s no time for cranky thinking.
But for some reason, when Lawyer Charlie Jordan mentioned the project of Lioson Innovation, a string in her mind suddenly became tense, and she asked, “Lawyer Charlie Jordan, there will be no problem with Lioson Innovation ‘s acquisition of the Noble Real Estate project?” Because it is When Caitlin introduced the project, she suddenly panicked.
Charlie was stunned for a moment, and then replied, “No problem, the delivery has been completed. Lisson has sent all the transfer money to Noble Real Estate last month.”
Serena carefully reviewed the entire cooperation process, and after confirming that there were no mistakes, she was a little relieved and prayed in her heart that nothing would happen.
Going home in the evening, Penn has arrived home early and is preparing dinner. The man is well–built, and the back view of the man in home clothes cooking carefully in the kitchen makes her eyes warm.
She changed her slippers and walked into the kitchen, hugged his waist from behind, and leaned against his back tightly, yearning for his warmth. Originally on the way home from work, she was considering whether to mention to Penn that Caitlin forced her to divorce, and also considering whether to divorce, but now leaning on his back, all those hesitation and consideration disappeared. His back is so firm and safe that he can take her through any storms, so she doesn’t want to divorce.
So she didn’t mention it to Penn, hanging on Penn like a koala. Penn wanted to turn around and hug her, but she stopped him.
“Cook quickly, I’m so hungry.”
“Okay” Penn laughed, carrying the koala on his back and speeding up the movements in his hands.
After the meal, the two walked hand in hand by the lake in the community. It was early autumn and the night was chilly. Penn was
holding her hand, but her fingers were cold, so he opened his coat instead and embraced her whole. In his arms, he heard her sniffing softly, “Have a cold?”
“Well, a little bit.” Even the voice was hoarse.
When she got home, she hurriedly wrapped a thin blanket over her, brought hot water for her to drink while covering her hands, and said helplessly
“Just now I asked you to put on an extra coat and go downstairs, but you refused. You can’t be more smug in the future.” He sometimes doesn’t understand their girls, even if they are walking in the community at night, they must insist on dressing beautifully. Who will they wear them for?? Isn’t it uncomfortable to have a cold?
“Okay, I won’t be stinky in the future.” She obediently responded, drinking hot water in small sips, and her whole body was finally warmed
The two nestled on the sofa and chose a movie to watch. After watching, they went back to their room to sleep. Because she was unwell, Penn was very honest all night, just hugging her to sleep, and did not do anything else.
Serena arrived at the law firm early the next day, and the normality she had shown at home last night fell apart after she separated from Penn. As soon as I arrived at the garage of the law firm, Caitlin ‘s voice call came as scheduled. Her voice was serious and indifferent, with a few simple words
“When will the divorce be?”
Serena also replied indifferently, “I don’t intend to divorce.”
There was a deathly silence on the phone, so quiet that Serena thought she had hung up the voice call. But soon, Caitlin’s shrill, even threatening voice came from the phone,” Serena, I gave you a chance, don’t blame me for being heartless.”
She doesn’t want to escape anymore, she will face it head–on. In this world, apart from her mother, apart from Penn, she has nothing to lose.
In fact, yesterday, before returning home from get off work, she went back to the hospital and had a long talk with her mother. That was the first time they had discussed their father’s past so calmly after his father’s death.
Mom asked, “Have you read your father’s letter?”
“I’ve seen it,” she said.
“Although your father is a complete bastard, he still has a bit of
conscience left. He didn’t involve our mother and daughter in his mess, so that we can live a dignified life.”
“Well, Dad also said in the letter that his feelings for you have not changed from the beginning to the end.” Serena emphasized this sentence, hoping that Mom could feel relieved.
When Mrs. Woodsen heard this sentence, his face seemed to be shocked, and then he shook his head and smiled wryly, “It’s not important, Serena, don’t look at my mother for a few years, but I think more openly than you. It was meaningless to be buried with his death. I saw his letter that day and lost control because he had an account for you. He was not a good husband, but at least he was a good father.”
Good dad? may be! Serena thought.
“Mom, do you know the past grievances between Dad and Humphery Family ?” This is also the purpose of her visit to the hospital this time, to ask her mother for her opinion.
“So what if you know? It has nothing to do with you. Serena, your father has harmed you for so many years. You can live as you want in the future. You must not be influenced by your father anymore. He dares to influence you after he dies.” For future happiness, even if I die, I will go down to seek his theory.”
“Bah, bah, what’s not going to die, mom, you want to live a long life.” Serena couldn’t hear such unlucky words.
“Okay, did your mother–in–law threaten you with me? How about it, Serena, you help me get out of the hospital, and I’ll go home and not give her a chance to threaten you.”
“Good morning, mom. I just pretended to be sick because I didn’t want to be discharged from the hospital. I don’t want to be hospitalized anymore. I can’t stand your mother–in–law coming to the hospital every three days to find me. The doctors and nurses here can’t stop her. I’ll go home and hide.
“Thank you mom.” Serena discharged her mother from the hospital and returned to the house in the suburbs. It happens that Jenny is in the house in the suburbs, so they can take care of each other.
“Don’t mention these things to Penn, that’s his mother, don’t make things difficult for him. Anyway, the happiness of the two of you is the most important thing.”
Serena has arranged her mother’s affairs, so she has no worries about Caitlin ‘s threats.
