Chapter 2737 A Flower Shop
Outraged, Joan glared at him.
Since when did I cause any trouble? Or even do anything behind his back? This is preposterous!
However, when she saw Larry’s silhouette moving further away, she couldn’t help but feel her heart ache.
After turning off the television, she got up and headed for the bedroom.
The next day, sunlight shone through the windows, filling the room with warmth. Lying in bed, Joan stretched herself before massaging her temple in an attempt to wake herself up further.
“Mommy, it’s time for breakfast.” Outside, Lucius was knocking on the door and yelling.
After checking the surroundings, she realized the bag in the corner was gone. Mmm-hmm, Larry really has gone on a business trip.
Joan didn’t know where he went for work and neither was she interested to know.
As her relationship with Larry deteriorated recently, it opened up an opportunity for others instead.
“Joan, have you and Larry made up?” Jessica gave her a concerned look.
Joan’s answer was so plain that it sounded as if nothing had happened at all.
For some reason, Jessica suddenly felt uneasy.
“Did you talk to each other recently?” Jessica asked on purpose.
“No,” Joan replied with indifference.
Despite her increasing concerns, Jessica didn’t show it in front of Joan.
As for Caspian, who was beside them cutting fruits, had a serious look on his face.
“Let me ask you something,” Jessica walked over and put a piece of apple into her mouth.
“Did Larry really go on a business trip?” She didn’t understand why Larry had to go on one at this stage.
After hesitating briefly, Caspian replied with conviction, “Of course he did.”
However, Jessica quickly saw through his awkward reaction.
“Caspian, tell me the truth.” She glared at him sharply.
Caspian looked up and gave her an uneasy look.
“I’m telling you the truth! Larry has gone on a business trip.” He pretended to be calm.
B**llshit! Does he think I can’t tell when he’s lying?
“If you don’t tell me the truth, I’ll move out of here.”
Caspian was shocked by her words. He had heard that women were terrifying creatures, and now he finally knew why.
“Don’t read too much into it, but Larry has gone to see Della,” Caspian feigned ignorance.
Just as expected, there was more to it than meets the eye.
“Continue!” Jessica leaned by his ear, waiting in anticipation for him to elaborate.
“Her father gave Larry a call, asking him to visit Della…”
So that’s what happened. Jessica was well aware of how powerful Della’s family was.
However, why did he lie? She didn’t understand that part. Was it so that Joan wouldn’t be jealous?
Meanwhile, Joan was sitting on the sofa, flipping through a magazine calmly. She had hidden her emotions so well that only she knew she was faking it.
“Joan, please have some fruits.” Just as she spoke, Jessica offered her some.
“Sure, thank you.”
As the three of them sat on the sofa, they chatted sporadically. The quiet surroundings simply accentuated the awkwardness of the situation. After glancing at Joan and then at Caspian, Jessica was visibly nervous.
Suddenly, Joan looked up and uttered, “I would like to start a business.”
What? Caspian and Jessica were stunned.
Why does she want to start a business all of a sudden? Caspian gave Joan a puzzled look.
In truth, Joan only wanted to keep herself occupied.
What kind of business?
“A flower shop,” Joan quickly answered. After all, she liked flowers, just like Delilah.
As Caspian and Jessica stared at Joan blankly, they waited in anticipation for the start of her plan.
