Chapter 1856 Let Us Get Divorced
After hanging up, Matthew gave Aaron a call to tell him he agreed to revoke the marriage engagement. Hearing that, Aaron immediately announced the news to the public. Meanwhile, Melissa, who was in the Nighy residence, almost passed out from anger the moment she heard the news.
Not understanding why the event she had been looking forward to was suddenly canceled, she immediately went looking for Matthew to find out if Aaron was the one who suggested it during his previous visit. As soon as Matthew nodded, Melissa gave him a tight slap on the face.
“Did he find out about your matter? Is that why he wants to revoke the engagement?” Melissa questioned with bloodshot eyes.
The slap from her left Matthew in a daze. “What do you mean he found out about my matter? What matter?”
Melissa scoffed, “What matter? What else? Of course, it’s the humiliating matter between you and the Queen Mother!”
With that, she added, “Let’s get divorced, Matthew.”
She did not want to live with him anymore.
At first, Melissa thought of putting up with it for Nico’s sake since the latter was getting married to Aaron. Now that the engagement was revoked, there was no point in her staying with Matthew. After saying those words, Melissa packed her things and returned to her parent’s home.
Matthew, on the other hand, never expected his matter with Nancy to be discovered. As he watched Melissa leave, he moved his lips to say something, but nothing came out of his mouth.
The moment the news was announced to the public, Aaron led a team to the island to pick Alicia and Clement up.
In the meantime, Clement, who was on the island, had heard about the news. He glanced at Alicia and said with a sigh, “The palace is not the same as your home. Make sure you treat Aaron’s mother with respect and help him like a perfect partner should when you’re there, okay?”
Alicia nodded. Of course, she knew all that. I’ll do my best to be a good wife and daughter-in-law.
“Pack your things. He’ll be here any minute now.”
Upon hearing that, Alicia nodded and went to her room to pack her things.
Aaron traveled so quickly that he arrived at the island in just two hours. The moment he saw Alicia, he jogged over and hugged her.
“, let’s get married once we return,” he said softly into her ear.
“Thank you, Aaron.” Alicia wrapped her arms around his neck as hot tears streamed down her cheeks and fell onto his skin. She never expected such a day to come. In fact, she thought she would never be a part of his world. All she could imagine was bringing up the child alone and living a peaceful and blissful life with Clement.
Letting go of her, Aaron wiped her tears. He then led her to Clement and said with a smile, “Grandpa, I’m here to bring both of you back.”
Clement gazed at the duo, his eyes filled with merriment. Relief washed over him as he realized Alicia had found a reliable partner. At least I won’t feel guilty if I meet her mother in heaven when I die.
“You can bring Alicia back. As for me…” Clement’s voice trailed off as he gazed at the tiny hut and everything else on the island. A smile crept up on his lips, and he said, “I can just stay here. I like the environment here. Living in the city is too boring and stifling. I feel more comfortable and at ease here.”
Alicia was dumbfounded by his words.
