Love You Enough to Leave You Chapter 232 I Am His Aunt
Amelia glanced at Kurt with a distressed look on her face before she said, “Kurt, didn’t I tell you before that you shouldn’t let anyone approach Mr. Anthony without my permission?”
,,,Chagrined of himself, Kurt bowed to Amelia solemnly. “It’s my fault. I’ll be more cautious next time.”
Stephanie on the other hand was tired of feigning amiability.
“Amelia, how could you say that? I’m Tony’s aunt. Is it wrong for me to visit him and play with him?” Stephanie felt aggrieved.
After hearing Stephanie’s statement, Amelia gazed at Stephanie with gravitas and replied, “Stephanie, do you really think that a person who has attempted to murder Tony before should still be considered a family to him?”
Stephanie was reticent for a while before she answered, “I realize what I did was wrong, Amelia. I’ve already knelt down to apologize to you. What else do you want me to do? Mom always said that you are a kind and empathetic person. So, tell me. Why are you acting so cold toward me? Have you ever truly accepted me as your sister-in-law?”
Amelia was rather amused by Stephanie’s words. It’s impressive how she always manages to portray herself as the victim in any situation. If she keeps on doing this, she’ll never be able to acknowledge and reflect upon all the unforgivable deeds that she’s done.
“Stephanie, whether or not I see you as my sister-in-law doesn’t really matter now, does it?” With her arms crossed, Amelia was exuding a menacing aura. I’ve had enough of your bullsh*t, Stephanie!
Even if I came from a lesser family, I won’t tolerate your disdain toward me anymore.
Glaring at the serious look on Amelia’s face, Stephanie was stupefied. I can’t believe I’m being retorted by her right now. Stephanie felt ashamed of herself.
Stephanie let out a few coughs before responding, “Amelia, I’m just trying to mend the relationship between us. If you keep on treating me coldly, don’t you think that Mom will get upset?”
Fed up with Stephanie’s attitude, Amelia ignored her. She then turned her head toward Kurt and uttered, “Kurt, make sure you take good care of Mr. Anthony. Besides Oscar, Dad, Mom, Tiffany and me, no one else is allowed near him.”
“Yes,” replied Kurt.
“Amelia, what do you think you’re doing?” Stephanie had a sullen expression on her face.
Amelia glanced at her and sighed. “Stephanie, I’m sick of you pretending to be nice to me. It’s just abhorrent to me now. It’s honestly fine that you don’t like me, I couldn’t care less anyway. With that said, let’s just stop seeing each other from now on, okay?”
Stephanie gritted her teeth and faked a smile.
Amelia then turned her attention toward Kurt. “Take care of Mr. Anthony, Kurt. I’m heading outside for a while.”
Seeing as Amelia was leaving the room, Stephanie followed after her. Ignoring me huh? Let me see how long can you keep this up.
“Amelia, where are you going?” Stephanie was being a nudnik to Amelia in order to annoy her.
Enraged, the veins on Amelia’s forehead were popping out as she clenched her fists.
“Amelia, I’ve discovered a new type of scented tea that is actually quite pleasant. Do you want to try it?”
Amelia kept on walking forward.
“Amelia, if you dislike tea, I’ll make you a latte instead. How does that sound?” Stephanie’s voice was getting louder.
Meanwhile, Amelia was getting more and more infuriated.
Stephanie added, “If latte doesn’t sound good to you either, how about a cake? I’ll make you a cake using the recipe that I’ve learned from an acquittance of mine who’s a chef.”
Amelia stopped in her tracks and glared at Stephanie with a perplexed look on her face. “What exactly are you up to, Stephanie?”
Stephanie shrugged her shoulders and replied in an innocent manner, “Nothing. I’m just trying to cheer you up.”
With her teeth clenched, Amelia uttered, “Stephanie, I don’t know what you’re playing at but whatever it is, I strongly advise you to stop it.”
Having said that, Amelia turned around and left.
After Amelia left, Stephanie let out a mischievous smile. She then proceeded to pull out a phone from her pocket.
“Amelia, you don’t want me to pester you right? Well, too bad! I’ll make sure to show up in front of you every day to irritate you.”
She entered a four-digit passcode into the phone and was surprised to see the phone unlocked. With her lips pursed, she uttered, ”Oh Amelia, I can’t believe your passcode is still the same as what you told me the day I borrowed your phone. I thought you’ll be smarter than this. Guess I have overestimated you huh? Well, whatever. This makes things easier for me anyway. I’ll make sure you stay out of our family for good this time.”
Stephanie opened Carter’s contact number and typed in the following message, “Carter, I can’t take it anymore. I can’t believe the car accident was all just part of Stephanie’s plan. The worst thing is, she didn’t even get the punishment she deserves. I seriously can’t bear to live with the Clintons any longer. It’ll be really nice if I can marry someone like you, then I won’t be as miserable as I am now. Would you come and save me?”
After she was done typing, she immediately sent the message.
She then continued on to write another one, “Carter, the reason why I wanted to divorce Oscar was that he has always prioritized Stephanie over me and Tony. I just can’t stand that behavior of his anymore. If you truly do love me, I need you to come and help me right now.”
This message was also sent over to Carter once she was done typing it.
After that, Stephanie blacklisted Carter on Amelia’s phone and deleted the two messages that she had sent.
She then returned the phone back to Amelia and Oscar’s bedroom as if nothing happened.
After realizing that she forgot her phone, Amelia went back to her bedroom to find it. Upon entering her room, she saw that her phone was just lying on the table. She was rather confused. I’m pretty sure that my phone was in my pocket the whole time though. I don’t remember taking it out whatsoever. Hmm, maybe I just took it out subconsciously at some point.
Having found her phone, Amelia didn’t feel like going out anymore. Instead, she went into Tony’s room and spent some time with him. Half an hour later, the maid suddenly knocked on the door. “Ms. Amelia, there’s someone here to see you.”
Amelia opened the door and queried, “Who is it?”
“Mr. Carter. He said it’s urgent.”
Baffled, Amelia let out a frown. Why did Carter go out of his way to come here just to see me? He could’ve just given me a call.
Without pondering too much about it, Amelia headed downstairs to greet Carter.
“Carter, what brings you here today?”
Carter lifted his head up to gaze at Amelia. His eyes were filled with emotion and fervor.
Staring into his fervent eyes, Amelia’s heart was racing. I have a bad feeling about this.
For whatever reason, Amelia felt like running away from Carter at that moment.
Something about him doesn’t feel right. I hope it’s just my imagination…
