Thank you for reading this post, don’t forget to visit Again!
Celine put away her phone and reached out her arm.She was about to ring the doorbell when she was startled by a honk from behind her.
“It seems like you don’t understand English, Aunt Celine!”
Alexander’s cold voice was heard as he poked his head out of the car.
Celine was speechless! Wasn’t he just on the phone? When did he even come? Could it be that when they were on the phone, he was already around the corner? Was he looking at her as they spoke? He rushed home from work so quickly, but did he have to go to such lengths just to protect his wife? Celine sneered inwardly before turning around to greet him.
“I was just worried about my beloved nephew and his wife! You came back just in time.Let me go in with you.”
It was a good thing that he came back.
Now, she could just follow him in.
“Aunt Celine, what don’t you understand? I told you that Lily is sick, and she doesn’t want to meet anyone.Why are you making things difficult?”
Hearing this, Celine frowned.
‘Are you not going to let me in the house at all?”
She did not expect him to answer so decisively without even batting an eyelid.Her eyes widened in shock as if she was about to lose her mind.
“What did you say?!”
“Drop the act, Aunt Celine! It’s been years.Everyone knows.Do you need me to spell it out for you? I respect you as my aunt, and I’ve tried to let things slide time and time again.
“Hasn’t it been peaceful that none of us kept in touch after so many years? I know very well why you’re here, Aunt Celine, so enough with the pretense.”
When faced with Alexander’s ruthlessness, Celine, who had initially wanted to play nice, immediately dropped the smile.
“Alex, keep in mind that no matter what, I will always be your aunt, and your grandma will always be your grandma.You’ll always be a Russell, and there’s no escaping that.Even though you’re an adult now and out of our control, don’t forget what your grandfather told you before he passed.Your dad was a filial son.Are you going to rebel against them like that?”
She stood there with her head up high, confident in her rebuttal.
The longer she spoke, the colder Alexander’s face got.
“Are you done?”
Celine did not answer.
“Well, you can leave if you’re done.I never needed your guidance when I was growing up, and I don’t need it now either.”At this point, Celine felt a little frightened by this nephew of hers.
After all, he was not as weak as her brother.
Alexander was stubborn and domineering.He was more like his mother, and this annoyed Celine.
Hatred pulsed through her veins, yet she did not dare stand up against him.
In the end, she clutched her bag and snorted before turning around and walking back to her car.
Then she drove away.
He only moved his car to the front of the entrance after watching her car drive away.
After he scanned his card, the gate slowly opened.
Meanwhile, Lily was just about to get a maid to check if Celine was still outside when she saw Alexander striding in toward her.
“Why are you back?”
Lily was surprised that he was back so soon.
Without saying a word, he pulled her into a hug as soon as he reached her.
His breaths were a little short as he lowered his head and nestled it into the socket of her shoulder, tightening his embrace.
