Mission To Remarry Novel Chapter 204 – After sitting in the living room for a while, Lucian instructed Catalina to get Estella down for dinner.
Estella had been staying in her room obediently, thinking about what Sonya just said. She was full of anticipation as she fantasized about what it would be like if Roxanne became her mother. During dinner, she couldn‘t help but ask, “Daddy, are you going to marry Ms. Jarvis?
”She then gazed at him expectantly. Ever since Estella came back, she only said a few words every time although she spoke quite a lot with him.
That was the first time that she said such a long sentence to him. Lucian was taken aback before he realized what Estella was asking.
As he thought about Estella‘s attitude toward Roxanne, he was curious and asked, “Do you like her?” As expected, Estella nodded.
I like Ms. Jarvis the most! When he saw the joy on Estella‘s face the moment she mentioned Roxanne, Lucian frowned slightly. “What do you like about her?”After all, Estella had only spent a pitifully little amount of time with Roxanne, but she seemed to be very dependent on the latter.
Besides, she seemed even closer to Roxanne than Lucian. Lucian couldn‘t seem to think of an explanation for that and could only take it that it was because of their mother–daughter bond.
Estella hadn‘t thought of that question before. Now that Lucian asked her, she tilted her head and thought about it seriously. After a pause, Estella counted on her fingers and answered seriously, “Ms. Jarvis is beautiful, gentle,
cooks well and she is very nice to me…”Listening to her response, Lucian was filled with mixed emotions as he asked, “
But Ms. Jarvis still has her two sons. Do you want them to stay with us too?” To that very day, Archie and Benny‘s existence still bothered Lucian. Although they were obedient, and Lucian was very fond of them,
he felt bad for them every time he thought about how their father had heartlessly abandoned both the boys and their mother. On the other hand, Estella simply wore an innocent expression, and her eyes sparkled.
“Archie and Benny are very nice to me, and I like them a lot too!”I like Ms. Jarvis, and I also like Archie and Benny! With that, she then remembered her initial question and looked at Lucian expectantly.
“So, are you going to marry Ms. Jarvis, Daddy? I want Ms. Jarvis to be my mommy!”
If not, why would Daddy ask me so many questions about Ms. Jarvis?As she thought about that, Estella became even more ‘hopeful and thought that Roxanne was definitely going to be her mom.
But why is Daddy taking such a long time to answer me?Estella‘s eyes were filled with confusion, and the anticipation in her heart died down slightly.
“Daddy?” she cautiously urged him. Lucian snapped back to his senses, and his gaze darkened as he avoided Estella‘s eyes. “No.” At least not for the time being Refusing to give up, Estella frowned, and she recalled what Sonya previously said.
“But Grandma said that–” That Daddy wanted to marry Ms. Jarvis. Before Estella could finish her words, Lucian interrupted her in a low voice,
“It was just a misunderstanding.
”Lucian didn‘t wish to continue with the conversation and filled Estella‘s plate with food. “Let‘s eat. Rest early after you‘re done eating.
”Estella got excited and talked so much previously just because she thought that Lucian was going to make Roxanne her mom. But now that she heard his response, she lowered her gaze dejectedly and lost her appetite.
She forced herself to finish the food on her plate before she jumped down from her chair and went back to her room without saying a word. Upon seeing how dejected Estella seemed, Lucian knitted his brows and fell silent.
