Isabella was always badmouthing her, and she now wanted to smear Astrid in front of everybody else.
Thalassa wouldn’t have it
Astrid was a genuine and kind person; she was never a card shark. She was always working in the fields or weeding her vegetable plot.
How on earth could Astrid be at a poker table?
After hearing Thalassa’s objection, Isabella became so nervous that she could now hear her own heart pounding
She was worried that Thalassa might blurt out that Astrid had taken the kids out
Just when Isabella’s nervousness began to cause her fingers to shake, Thalassa spoke up again.
“Astrid’s out; she’s not at home now”
After saying this, she turned to Lysander “Mr. Sinclair, have a seat. I’ll go pick some veggies from my garden for cooking later, okay?”
She moved over a chair that was dusty and had cobwebs on it.
She really didn’t know why Lysander had come to her house.
Since he was Isabella’s boyfriend, wouldn’t it be better to go directly to Isabella’s place?
Did he come to her place to mock her with Isabella?
Or to make fun of Astrid?
Thalassa was very displeased with Isabella After she had seen Isabella’s dirty tricks, she didn’t want to get too close to her in case she became her
She deliberately moved over a chair full of dust. Lysander was neat, tidy, noble, and handsome. She wanted to see if he could bear to sit down.
“Mr. Sinclair is a very distinguished man, how could he sit on such a dirty chair? Mr. Sinclair, come to my house. I’ve made quite a bit of money doing business these past few years and built a big house with marble floors, not like here, with dirt floors.” Isabella was desperate to get Lysander back to her house, she couldn’t let him stay at Thalassa’s for long
As long as Lysander went to her house, everything could be discussed.
Lysander glanced at the dusty chair and then looked coldly at Thalassa, like a needle prick, causing a sharp pain in Thalassas heart.
Thalassa’s heart pounded without warning.
“No need; I can’t stomach Hollowbrook’s food!” Lysander said this and strode off.
-Isabella quickly followed him ‘Mr. Sinclair, how about I treat you to a meal in the city? The food there is decent.”
“Get lost!” Lysander said coldly without looking back, went straight to his Rolls Royce, opened the door, and got in.
Isabella was frightened by his outburst. She stopped in her tracks, not following him anymore.
Lysander was angry. If she kept following him, he would become even more disgusted
It was better he left, so they could avoid inadvertently mentioning the time they had slept together in the old house five years ago while chatting with Thalassa
After seeing the Rolls-Royce drive off, Isabella turned around, feeling satisfied.
Thalassa at home also let out a sigh of relief.
Good thing he left, otherwise, she really didn’t know how to deal with such a picky person.
David drove away from Hollowbrook
The road there was very narrow, and if he drove a bit faster, he worried the wheels would get stuck in the cement.
So David drove very slowly.
Ahead of the car, a middle aged woman was leading two little girls towards him.
The road was too narrow, so both people and cars couldn’t pass at the same time.
David stopped the car, planning to let them pass first.
Evelyn was leading Elowen and Sophia, they had just finished picking reeds and had reached the main road.
