His And Her Marriage Chapter 270 – Suddenly, the doorbell rang.
Estella thought it was Roxanne and the boys who had returned. Her eyes lit up, and she leaped off the bed, dashing over to open the door.
The second she saw the person at the door, the sparkle in her eyes faded. “Essie.” The smile on Aubree‘s face looked forced.
Aubree was, after all, a woman. On top of that, she had to walk along the mountain path to reach the hotel.
Most importantly, Lucian seemed to have no intentions of waiting for her. He had merely carried Estella in his arms and strode off.
After walking for some time, she was left behind, and she had lost sight of them.
Thankfully, there was only one hotel nearby, and that was how she had found them.
After asking the receptionist for their room number, she headed straight for the room.
Seeing who the visitor was, Lucian, too, was unhappy. However, Aubree pretended as if she did not see the change in their expressions.
With a smile on her face, she entered the room and glanced at Estella, saying, “Aren‘t you feeling unwell? Why aren‘t you resting in bed?”
When she finished her words, she gave Lucian a reproachful look. “Didn‘t I tell you already? I‘ll take care of Essie.”
Lucian knitted his brows. “Essie‘s just a little tired. If you have no other matters, you should go home as soon as possible.”
Aubree‘s expression froze, and she racked her brains in search of an excuse to stay back.
s she was thinking about it, she suddenly spotted the pink luggage at the bedside.
It did not look like it belonged to Lucian no matter how hard she stared at it. “This is…” Aubree asked in puzzlement, eyeing the luggage suspiciously.
Lucian followed her line of sight and said plainly, “That belongs to a parent of Essie‘s classmate.
There weren‘t enough rooms, so I had to squeeze into someone else‘s.” Upon hearing that, Aubree shot him a look of surprise.
“You‘re sharing a room with a woman?” Lucian‘s gaze darkened. If it were another woman, he, naturally, would not agree to it.
However, that woman was Roxanne. They were once husband and wife and had intimate moments back then.
Thus, there was nothing to be shy about. Moreover, they were very cautious by making sure they put on pajamas when they slept.
In fact, they rarely spoke to each other.
When Aubree noticed the luggage, she immediately realized that the woman was most likely Roxanne and disgust rose in her heart.
I knew it! I can‘t let Lucian stay with Roxanne! They were already a wall apart when they were in Bellridge.
And this time, they‘re staying together in a room! And Lucian doesn‘t seem to mind it at all!
Aubree‘s blood boiled, but she pinched her palm to suppress her anger.
Putting on a gentle smile, she suggested, “Well, if the hotel did not have enough rooms yesterday, maybe they have some today.
Let me ask them. Even if you don‘t mind sharing a room with a woman, you still have to think from her perspective.
It might be inconvenient for her.” With that, she turned around, wanting to head downstairs to request a change of room for Lucian.
Lucian merely frowned without saying a word. Estella, however, pulled the hem of Aubree‘s skirt. Resistance was written all over her face.
“I don‘t want that!” Aubree calmed herself down and looked at Estella with a frown. “Be a good girl, Essie.
If this gets out, it‘ll bring trouble to both your daddy and that lady.” Estella shook her head stubbornly.
Ms. Jarvis left because Ms. Pearson made her angry. This room is the only place I get to see Ms. Jarvis.
If we change to another room, I don‘t know when I‘ll get to see Ms. Jarvis again.
Estella‘s behavior only made Aubree more certain that Roxanne was the woman Lucian was sharing a room with.
Aubree was on the verge of losing her temper when she realized that fact.
Taking a deep breath, she bent down and said patiently, “Let‘s get another room. I‘ll play with you, okay?”
