Chapter 150 His Hardship
She looked exceptionally stunning, and she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.
Looking at her, he felt a moment of peace in his heart as though all his worries had been cleared.
It was past eleven o’clock at night after all the fireworks were set off. The three children were exhausted too.
Elizabeth brought them back to their room and put them to sleep. Meanwhile, Matthew sat in the yard, holding a cigarette between his fingers.
It was dead silent in the mountain. The only sound they could hear from time to time was the laughter of the people on the
opposite side of the mountain who were in the hot springs.
Esme stood aside and accompanied Matthew, looking at the starry sky.
Suddenly, Matthew questioned, “Esme, do you think family affection is more important than love?”
He wanted to marry this woman even though she already had children. The fact did not seem to bother him at all.
However, he could not bear to go against his grandfather who might collapse at any time, as the latter was not in good
As a result, he was in a dilemma.
He wished he could give her happiness, but he could not marry her for the time being
It was a difficult question that left Esme pondering for a long time before he replied, “I guess family affection matters
Love might not be eternal, but the bond between family members would not break apart that easily. Family members
were the ones who would stick around through thick and thin for a long time.
Matthew took a heavy puff on his cigarette without saying a word.
At that point, Esme could tell from Matthew’s solemn expression that the latter was not in a good mood. Nonetheless, Esme could not seem to tell what was on Matthew’s mind, and he dared probe further either.
They returned to the city on the next day.
As soon as the car stopped at Snowy Barber, Esme opened the door for them. Arthur got out of the car first and reached
out to help Abby.
Elizabeth hopped off after all her children had gotten out of the car.
Matthew, who was sitting in the backseat, wound down the window, revealing his chiseled profile.
“Mr. Hilton, thank you for taking us out,” said Elizabeth.

Following that, the three children said in unison, “Thank you, Mr. Hilton!”
Matthew turned to look at them and replied calmly, “You’re welcome! Just work harder in the future if you wish to repay
my kindness, Ms. Wade,”
Elizabeth immediately grabbed the gist behind his words.
Nodding, she replied, “I got it, Mr. Hilton. Bye!”
The three kids entered the house after the car drove off. As Elizabeth walked back, Josh strode toward her.
“Lizzy, when are you going to pay the money? It’s been two weeks, and the company is rushing me!”
Only then did Elizabeth get reminded of that matter. “I’m sorry, Josh! I’ll ask her if she has sold the house. We’ll transfer
the money as soon as the house gets sold.
Josh’s expression grew grimmer as he replied, “If you don’t pay us on time according to the contract, the interest will keep
Elizabeth knew about the interest, too. “Okay, we’ll make sure to pay by this week.”
Josh heaved out a sigh of relief. “Okay. I’ll relay your message to the company. Don’t forget it.”
“Thank you, Josh,” said Elizabeth.
As soon as she got home, she texted Jessica: Jess, have you sold your house? They are urging us to pay the five hundred
thousand by this week.
Nevertheless, Jessica did not reply. Elizabeth thought Jessica might still be sleeping, so she did not disturb her.
Elizabeth changed into a black blazer with a preppy skirt, fishnet stockings, and black boots.
Standing in front of the mirror and looking at herself, she thought she looked much younger in that attire.
Right then, Arthur entered the room. “Mommy, don’t forget that your class starts today.
Elizabeth grabbed her bag and walked over to him.
“I’m going to go to class now, and I won’t let you down.”
