As soon as I heard what Rita said, my mind went blank.
I then though of what had happened before and arrived at an answer.
“Is it true?” I asked in a serious tone, looking at Scarlett. 1
Although I knew the answer to that question, I still wanted to hear it from her.
Crumpling her hem in her hands, Scarlett took a deep breath, and said, “It is.”
“How long has it been since you got pregnant?”
“A few weeks now. It’s that night of Valentine’s day.”
“Why didn’t you tell me before? Were you afraid that I might not want the baby?” I looked at her, my heart filled with disappointment.
She had hidden her pregnancy from me for so long, and she had also refused the wedding. Thinking about it, I could not help but get angry.
“I don’t want the baby to affect your decisions.” Scarlett continued to keep her head down, looking stubborn and pitiful at the same time. 2
After a long silence, I said to her lightly, “You should go back and rest.” Ignoring the surprised look in her eyes, I turned to Spencer and said, “Please send her back home for me, will you?”
“Are you mad at me?” Scarlett asked me in a voice that was filled with grievance.
“Now that you’re pregnant, you need to rest well.” | softened my tone as I stroked her head.
Seeing that she had no intention of leaving, I added, “You go back first. I’ll be back after I take care of things here.”
“Tomorrow… Are we still going to hold a wedding ceremony?” Scarlett looked at me nervously as she tightened her grip on the hemline of her dress.
I held her cold hand and said firmly, “Tomorrow, I’ll pick you up early in the morning and marry you.”
Before she left, Scarlett looked at Rita and said indifferently, “My father made a mistake by trusting his friends too much, and your father is a scumbag. He used his friend to violate the law. He can’t get away with it.”
Scarlett then turned to me with a nervous look in her eyes. And I gave her a reassuring look before she walked away.
As soon as she left, Rita sat down next to me, and asked eagerly, “Charles, didn’t you know that Scarlett is pregnant?”
I drank alone, without answering her.
“Charles has always wanted a daughter. Now, his wish can be fulfilled,” David said with a smile.
“I can also give you a baby, Charles. You can have as many babies as you want, with me!” Rita whispered in my ear, and it was obvious how anxious she was. 4
I kept silent for a long time before I slammed the glass on the table with a loud bang.
“I’m going to be a father,” I roared happily, looking at everyone, except Rita.
“Charles, I think you still need to find out whether Scarlett’s child is yours or not,” Rita reminded me.
“Scarlett is nothing like you.” | gave her a cold glare and moved away. Clearly, I wanted to keep my distance from her. I completely despised her now.
“Pour me some wine to celebrate this good news! I’m going to be a father.” Seeing that I was in a bright and cheerful mood, everyone raised their glasses to celebrate the wonderful news.
“Charles, as far as I know, Scarlett is having an affair with her colleague. Please calm down and don’t let her deceive you.” Rita was still trying to confuse right with wrong, and my good mood was ruined because of her. 3
“You all drink to your heart’s content and enjoy yourselves today. It’s my treat,” I said flatly before I stood up, about to leave.
However, Rita caught up with me and stopped me.
“Do you really want to marry Scarlett?” she asked me in tears. 2
“Yes, I am.” | nodded without hesitation and warned her, “Don’t follow me anymore. I don’t want Scarlett to misunderstand me.”
“But Scarlett doesn’t love you at all,” Rita screamed hysterically, standing behind me.
I stopped in my tracks and retorted coldly, “I can feel her love on my own.”
Leaving her alone, I strode away from there.
On my way home, I kept thinking about what Charles would think of the baby. Although he promised me that the wedding would be held as scheduled, I still felt uneasy. And I began to regret hiding the truth from him.
My mind was lost in various conjectures and fantasies.
‘Will he really marry me?
Is he going to be angry that I didn’t tell him about the pregnancy?
Why did he stay behind in the club?
What is he going to do to Rita?’
These doubts haunted my brain. I really wanted to call him and ask him what was on his mind, but I could not because I was afraid that he might give me an answer that I did not want to hear.
I thought about it for a long time before I fell asleep.
The next morning, the make-up artist came and helped me with my makeup.
“Scarlett, you look so stunning today. Obviously, women are the prettiest on their wedding days.” Nina couldn’t help praising me as she sat down beside me. 2
“You will also have a wedding of your own in the future,” I answered absent-mindedly. “Were you too excited last night that you didn’t have a good rest? You don’t look too well,” she asked with concern.
“Nothing. I just feel a little tired. Maybe, it’s because I got up too early.”
To set her mind at rest, I forced a smile.
“Then you’d better rest while you get ready or you will only end up feeling more exhausted later,” Nina said lovingly before she covered me with a blanket.
I closed my eyes, but I could not stop thinking about Charles and Rita. After my make-up was done, Ethan’s assistant brought me the wedding dress.. As soon as I put it on, I felt like the waist part of the dress was a little looser.
“I think that the wedding dress is much looser than before. It doesn’t seem like the size we discussed last time,” I said to Ethan in confusion.
“Your husband called me last night and asked me to widen the waist.” Ethan massaged his eyebrows tiredly with a helpless shrug. 2
When I heard those words, I was moved. Charles was indeed considerate.
Once everything was ready, Charles came to pick me up. 1
Our wedding ceremony was going to be held on an island.
In order to surprise me, Charles didn’t allow me to see the island before the wedding. Although I had heard that it was a stunningly beautiful place, when I first saw it, I was moved as it beyond my expectation. It was not hard to imagine how much effort he had put into the wedding ceremony.
The wedding ceremony began, and I held Lawrence’s hand as I walked towards Charles.
| stared at him. He was dressed in a tuxedo with his hair slicked back, which made him look more mature and charming.
“You have to love Scarlett with all your heart and your soul. Don’t **** her off anymore. You have to protect her and not let her suffer any grievances. You should remember the traditions of our Moore family,” Lawrence reminded his son eagerly while holding my hand.
Charles looked at me firmly. “I will love her and take care of her for the rest of our lives. I won’t let her suffer even the slightest amount of pain, and I will love her more than I love myself.” 2
Upon hearing those words, my eyes instantly turned red and teary. I was deeply touched.
Lawrence then put my hand in Charles’ hand with satisfaction.
Charles looked at me tenderly.
The priest asked, “Do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife?”
“I do.” Charles interrupted the priest before he could even finish his words.
And I found that to be quite funny.
“Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?” the priest asked me.
“I do,” I interrupted him, just like Charles did.
“Oh, it looks like you two can’t wait to get married. You may exchange rings now,” the priest said with a smile.
Charles and I put a ring on each other’s finger before he lifted my veil and kissed me on the forehead. 5
All the warm blessings and cheers from our close friends and relatives made me tear up again.
