Chapter 21 It’s Just an Unfortunate Situation
Elisa sighed. “Grandma, you know that he doesn’t love me. He’ll just hate me more if we keep this farce up. Right now, the best thing for the both of us is a divorce. Grandma, let us do this. It’s a chance for the both of us to be happy.”
Elisa’s voice was clearly more strained at the end of her plea.
Julia’s face turned pale.
Elisa was such a good granddaughter-in-law!
How could that stupid grandson of mine let her go so easily?!
It looked like they had already decided to divorce. Nothing Julia could say now would change their mind. She couldn’t be that selfish no matter how much she adored Elisa and wanted her to stay married to Gareth…
Gareth never cared for Elisa. He never even brought his wife home during the three years they were married! This was not what a decent man would do! He did not fulfil his husbandly duties. Forcing them to stay together would only hurt Elisa.
Julia really hated the thought of them separating… She felt so conflicted!

Right now, all she wanted to do was call Gareth and yell at him! She was furious!
Julia took a deep breath, “Elisa. Wait a minute, I’m going to call that idiot grandson of mine!!”
Before Julia had a chance to hang up, Elisa called out.
“I know you like me. I’m so thankful that you looked after me all these years. But… Somethings just aren’t meant to be. Gareth’s and my relationship have come to an end, however that shouldn’t affect ours. I’ve always thought of you as my own grandmother. I’ll still visit you often, okay?”
Julia’s heart softened toward her. Her hand that was holding onto her phone started to shake.
She no longer knew what to say. After a long pause, she finally said, “… Fine.”
Elisa finally felt a weight lift off her shoulders. She finally had Grandma’s approval. She would no longer put pressure on Gareth. She chuckled, “So… Could you not call him to ask about this? The both of us… Have called it quits.”
It was just an unfortunate situation for all parties.
Elisa knew Grandma well enough to know that she hated how the Wickams were more focused on power and riches. They had lost the warmth they once had.
Which was why she would not care if the company went bankrupt.
This was one of the reasons why she decided to work with Will.
Julia sighed audibly. “Forget about it. You children have your own lives to live. I can’t make your decisions for you. My dear girl, you’re one of the good ones. Gareth is making the biggest mistake of his life by letting you go. I know that you’ll meet someone who will treat you much better than he did. You deserve to be loved and cherished. Listen to me, hold your head up high and do not let anyone mistreat you, understood?”
Warmth filled Elisa’s chest. Grandma was the only person to show her kindness ever since she married into the Wickam family. While the others…
“Okay Grandma. I got it. Thank you for supporting me.”
