As the wedding approached, Billy suddenly clutched his stomach and rushed to the bathroom, clearly affected by the laxative Leah had prepared for him. Standing at the bathroom door, Leah pretended to be angry as she scolded him.
“Billy Anstey, you’re always so unpredictable. Today is Liliane’s big day, and you’re behaving like this!?”
Billy, taken aback by the unexpected bout of diarrhea, couldn’t believe it since he had always been in good health and had eaten everything.
“Honey, I don’t know what I ate that was contaminated either.”
Feigning anger, Leah replied, “What am I going to do with you? You still have to escort Liliane on stage later. Can you do that in this condition?”
“Honey, trust me, I won’t mess up!” Billy promised.
Leah sneered inwardly, wondering why she had given him the laxative in the first place.
“I’ll go greet the guests first. If you haven’t come downstairs by then, we won’t wait for so as not to delay the program,” she declared.
Billy sat on the toilet, clutching his stomach in pain, and replied, “Don’t worry about me. Take care of Liliane.”
Resentfully, Leah muttered, “At least you still act like a father.”
She then took out her phone and sent a message to Shane.
Leah: [Shane, dress up nicely today. You have to accompany Liliane down the aisle later.]
Leah: [What? Are you still trying to keep a high moral? Oh, right, you must keep that b*tch Esther away! Don’t let her show up at Liliane’s wedding.]
Shane: [I’ve already made arrangements for it.]
Leah habitually deleted the chat history with Shane, smiled, and went downstairs to greet the guests.
Meanwhile, Liliane hesitated momentarily before posting the photos the stylist took on her social media.
‘Esther, you’ll see this, right?
‘You should know that Bradley, the man I’ve been longing for decades, is about to marry me now, and you can watch it happen!’
Liliane’s post was visible to everyone, and Esther naturally saw it. She looked at the elegantly dressed Liliane, snickered, and turned off her phone screen.
“Mommy, are you ready?” Felix happily ran to Esther’s side, carrying his backpack
Esther reached out and held his hand, her expression filled with affection. “Mommy’s ready.”
She casually grabbed a purse and walked to the living room, holding Felix’s hand.
“Esther, take Felix to school today. I have something to do, so I’ll leave first!” Bradley said.
Esther grabbed Bradley’s hand, her eyes misty. She hesitated and asked, “Darling, do you know what day it is today?”
Bradley frowned. “If you don’t have time to send Felix, I’ll have the driver do it.”
He would finally address his relationship with Liliane once and for all today. After dealing with Liliane-related matters, he would seriously consider his relationship with Esther.
