Mr. Conrad Proposes to His Ex-wife Again – Chapter 284 Go Somewhere with Me Tomorrow

When he said it like that, Stella felt a little embarrassed and blushed a little, “l am not a kid who needs your company.” After that she said, “Okay then, I am hanging up.”

At the end, she quickly added, “Good night!” After Stella hung up the phone, Clarence slowly put down his phone and his lips curled into a slight smile.

At this time, a young woman walked up to Clarence from behind, “Mr. Conrad, the doctor said that the baby’s fever has subsided and he has just fallen asleep.”

Clarence hummed in response and walked into the bedroom next to him.
In the bedroom, the doctor had just left and Dolores was sitting next to the crib looking very much distressed.
After a while, Clarence slowly said, “It is just a little fever and cold. It’s normal.”

Dolores sighed silently. The little guy’s physique was much worse than other children of his age. During the first two months of his birth, he had suffered from a serious and minor illnesses alike which didn’t let her feel at ease. However, compared to before, it was really much better.

Dolores looked at the crib. The little guy wasn’t sleeping well and there was a fever reducing patch on his forehead. He looked very small.

She said, “Until when are you going to hide Channing?” Clarence stood on the side, with one hand in his trouser pocket. He pursed his lips and then said, “It will soon be over.”

Dolores said, “Anyway, you can figure it out on your own. I won’t be helping you persuade her. this incident was originally your fault.”

Clarence didn’t say anything.

Dolores looked at him, “Everything is fine here, you can go back.”

Soon, Clarence’s voice sounded, “Joanna is looking for you.”

Hearing this, Dolores was taken aback for a moment. Then her expressions became indifferent, “What for?”

Clarence retracted his gaze, looking anywhere but her and said lightly, “Nothing much. Just trying to use my identity of being an illegitimate child and trying to raise up a storm again, that’s all.”

Dolores face changed slightly, “Clare, what happened back then was not…” “I don’t care what happened back then.” Clarence said coldly, “I only want her to pay for what she did.”

“How can I help you?”

The incident caused by Selina was completely over. Not only did the studio remained unaffected, but it got more popular and many well-known jewelry bloggers contacted them for advertising collaborations.

Even SG Jewelry Magazine published a special piece showcasing the designs by the studio.
In less than half a month, the studio’s orders increased sharply.

Sherry fell on the sofa extremely tired, “There are too many orders, and Chan has started school again. It looks like we have to recruit more people.”

Stella replied as she sorted out the orders, “Don’t worry, I have already posted a job ad online. Someone will come for the interview.”

Hearing this, Sherry’s spirits soared again, “Really?”

Stella nodded, about to answer, but she noticed an envelope among the bunch of orders.
She picked up the envelope and looked at it. Her expressions changed when she opened it.
Upon not hearing her voice, Sherry looked at her, “Stella, what’s the matter?”

Stella put down the letter and shook her head, “Nothing. It’s late, let’s go back.”

Sherry got up from the sofa, “Okay.”

On the way back, Sherry said, “Oh, right! I haven’t seen that wretched… I mean I haven’t seen Clarence come to meet you lately.”

“He has been busy with the Steward group’s matter. He went on a business trip last week, still hasn’t come back.” Sherry couldn’t help but sigh, “Reunion after a brief parting is as sweet as a honeymoon.” Stella was lost in her thoughts and didn’t say anything.

Sherry thought she was being weird. When she used to make such jokes before, Stella always got embarrassed and told her to stop talking nonsense.

But today, she didn’t react at all.

Sherry asked tentatively, “Stella, what is the matter with you? Are you not feeling well?”

Stella withdrew from the train of her thoughts and pressed her temples with her fingers, “I feel a little dizzy.” “Do you want to buy some medicine?”

“No need. I just need to sleep then I will be fine.”

Sherry said, “Alright then, I will drive faster.”

After returning home, Stella went straight to her bedroom without even washing up.

Sherry scratched her head and poured a glass of water.

In the room, Stella sat at her desk and took out the envelope from her purse.

Inside the envelope, there were several photos and a blackmail letter.

When she saw those photos, Stella couldn’t help but turn pale. Her fingertips trembled slightly.

Three years ago, she was sent to the twilight Club that night and after struggling desperately she was finally able to escape the room and met Clarence.

But…

She did not expect that photos of what happened before she escaped the room were taken.

The blackmail letter said that she had to prepare five million yuan and bring them to the designated address tomorrow.
Stella took a deep breath and put the photos back into the envelope.

After thinking for a long time, she took out her cellphone and called Clarence.

Soon, the man’s deep voice came, “What’s up?”

‘I… can’t sleep. Are you busy?”

Clarence said softly, “In a meeting. I will call you after it ends.”

Stella said, “Don’t bother. I will be asleep after you finish. Continue your work.”

Saying that Stella hung up the phone.

After a while, the door of her room was knocked and Sherry’s voice came, “Stella, are you asleep?” Stella got up and opened the door, “Not yet.”

Sherry handed her a cup of warm water, “l am making some porridge. It will be done in a while. would you like to eat some before sleeping?”

Stella accepted the cup and shook her head.

Seeing her complexion look weird, Sherry said, “Stella, you… did something happen? Did that wretched man cheat again? Tell me, I will help you curse him out!”

Hearing this, Stella smiled, “No, I am just not feeling well.”

Seeing that Stella insisted on wanting to share, Sherry didn’t press too much and just said, “Well then, you should sleep early.” “Okay.”

Stella turned around and was about to close the door, but she hesitated for a few seconds and then said, “Sherry.”

Sherry turned around, “What?”

Stella didn’t know how to say it.

No matter how much time had passed, the things that happened at the Twilight Club were horrible nightmares that she didn’t want to remember.

She didn’t know how these photos suddenly appeared after all these years, nor did she know who was holding on to these photos. All of her forgotten anxiety and fear seemed to have resurfaced from the moment she saw those photos.

After a long time, she said, “Go somewhere with me tomorrow.” Sherry was a bit startled when she heard this, but she did not ask much and nodded, “Okay.”

Under normal circumstances, Stella would have told her everything. Generally, what Stella didn’t want to say was either something she didn’t know how to say or something unspeakable.

Sherry knew she had to wait until tomorrow to find out.
