Chapter 31 

Edith pulled Jeanne back into her seat and covered her mouth

No, it’s not like that. Don’t talk nonsense,Edith said

Jeanne protested with muffled sounds of discontent while attempting to push Edith’s hand away

She pondered in annoyance, Gideon hasn’t even answered yet!‘ 

Gideon glanced at them through the rearview mirror and then changed the subject

After some exploration, it has been confirmed that there are a lot of valuable artifacts buried beneath the historic district. The board was worried that you might be shorthanded, so they’ve dispatched a few people from abroad to assist you.” 

Edith then thought of the several foreigners she had seen in the laboratory that afternoon

She thought, Having help will make my job easier, which is a good thing.’ 

Just as Edith was about to feel relieved, Gideon’s voice dampened her excitement like a bucket of cold water

However, I think they lack the ability to handle this meticulous work and have already sent them back. So, until the new assistants arrive, you’re responsible for these tasks.” 

Edith was rendered speechless

Edith felt a tightness in her chest, a mix of frustration and disbelief, which made her cough uncomfortably

She thought angrily, Wasn’t he who doubted I couldn’t even write a proper report this afternoon? And now he’s dumping all the work on me? No one changes their mind as fast as he does!‘ 

Edith glared at Gideon. You did this on purpose, didn’t you? Knowing full well this is when we’re shorthanded, yet you still sent them away.” 

She couldn’t think of any other way to describe this behavior except as a spiteful revenge. Gideon’s hand, which was resting on the steering wheel, tightened involuntarily

He wondered, Why is she blaming me again?‘ 

Gideon then intentionally provoked her, saying, Is it that you think you can’t complete the project? If so, I can request a replacement from the association anytime.” 

Of course I can!Edith retorted without hesitation

The moment she learned of the value of the artifacts in the historic district, any thoughts of leaving vanished instantly

Gideon was pleased with Edith’s response and nodded. Then follow the arrangement.” 

Edith felt like she was being manipulated again, which made her feel defeated

She mused, Why can’t I ever outsmart this archfiend, Gideon?‘ 

After much effort, Jeanne finally freed herself from her mother’s grasp and regained her ability to speak freely

She blinked, her thick, long eyelashes briefly casting soft shadows, making her look like a fairy in 

cartoons

Quick to catch on, Jeanne asked, Were they the two ladies we met in the elevator?” 

Gideon didn’t want to discuss it, but seeing her eager eyes, he could only nod and say, One of them

was an assistant.” 

Smiling, she made a finger heart

You sent them away, not to trouble Mom, but to stand up for me.” 

Jeanne pondered, It seems Gideon isn’t as bad as I thought. He’s quite caring

Gideon didn’t respond and just drove in silence

He thought, I can’t outright admit it, can I? Edith would read too much into it if I did. Apart from being rude to Jeanne, those assistants really weren’t up for the job

In the elevator? Stand up for you? What happened?Edith was baffled and thought, I must have missed something significant!‘ 

Gideon then brought the car to a sudden halt

With that, Edith’s body jolted forward so violently that her nose hit the backrest, and her eyes. immediately watered with pain

She pondered, Thank goodness my nose is real, or it would have been crooked after such a hit

Gideon opened the car door. Nothing happened. We’re home, get out.” 

What?Edith looked at him skeptically, wondering, This doesn’t make sense! She then turned to Jeanne and asked, Tell me, what has happened?” 

Jeanne stuck out her tongue, with an innocent look on her face

It’s nothing, just a little secret between me and Gideon. Don’t ask anymore, Mommy.” 

She didn’t want to worry Edith

Edith was disheartened to see her little girl already starting to side with others

Afterward, she, along with Jeanne and Ruben, got out of the car, and Gideon drove away

The RollsRoyce he drove then disappeared into the dark street

He didn’t go to see Danika and her daughter?Edith thought, standing at the crossroads, looking flustered

She then pondered, Could Jeanne have guessed it right? Did Gideon pretend it was convenient to drive us, but actually, he intended to take us home” 

The thought sent a shiver of fear through Edith

She thought in disbelief, That’s impossible! Absolutely impossible! Gideon isn’t that kindhearted

Having just finished a date, Bonnie swiftly drove her flashy and ostentatious sports car toward them, parking it smoothly at the entrance

Seeing Edith and the others standing motionless by the roadside, Bonnie approached and asked, What’s the matter? Were you all waiting for me?” 

Mommy might be too tired,Jeanne explained with a hint of unease

I think so, too. She looks exhausted. Come on, let’s get in. I had brought you guys some latenight snacks.Bonnie nodded understandingly, picking up Jeanne and hugging her tightly, exclaiming inwardly, Nothing beats the scent of this little one!‘ 

Bonnie, holding Jeanne, entered the villa first

Looking at Ruben beside her, Edith asked persistently, Tell me, what had happened in the elevator?” 

Ruben adjusted his glasses, displaying an expression that suggested he had nothing to reveal

Edith sighed, thinking, I must be out of my mind, hoping to get the whole story from Ruben.‘ 

Forget it. As long as Gideon doesn’t do anything to hurt you guys, that’s fine then.” 

Ruben looked up at Edith as if he wanted to say something but stopped

He wondered, Did Dad the jerk hurt Mom before?‘ 

Following the cobblestone path, the villa’s main entrance was a short distance away

While walking, Edith noticed that Danika’s house still had lights on

Lacking the energy to ponder further, Edith led Ruben back home for a latenight snack

As they were eating, Edith vented to Bonnie, relentlessly criticizing Gideon

He only knows how to pressure me, even questioning my work ability. Today, he even tattled to Mr. Simmons about me!” 

Bonnie clicked her tongue. Really? Gideon doesn’t seem like the type to gossip behind someone’s back.” 

WellAnyway, he just seems to have it out for me!Edith was unsure if Victor Simmonscomments about her unprofessional attitude were instigated by Gideon

But then, Edith couldn’t think of anyone other than Gideon who would target her like that

Ruben suddenly found his fried chicken unappetizing

He thought angrily, He’s bullying Mom again! It seems the previous punishments were too lenient. I need to think of new strategies

After finishing their meal, Ruben and Jeanne didn’t even listen to their bedtime story and quickly went to their rooms to wash up and sleep

Edith cleaned up the leftovers on the table

Turning her head, she saw Bonnie curled up on the sofa with a drink and knew she wouldn’t be going home tonight

Edith advised, Don’t drink too much.” 

I think I’m living quite well now, but my dad insists on setting me up on blind dates,” Bonnie said, burying her head in her knees, looking dejected

Edith then went to sit down beside her

Since last year, the Ramirez family had been continuously arranging blind dates for Bonnie, hoping she would settle down soon

Bonnie, who lived a carefree life and disliked being tied down by relationships, naturally opposed her family’s wishes, leading to a tugofwar that lasted over a year

Edith suggested a compromise. Your dad is aged. His worries about you are normal. Next time you go on a blind date, just find an excuse to say it’s not a good match. Don’t always go and argue with your family.” 

That’s easier said than done,Bonnie muttered, finishing the drink in her glass in one go

Exhausted from the day’s tribulations, Edith couldn’t sit still any longer. She went to her room, quickly freshened up, and fell asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow

Meanwhile, moonlight shone down, casting a pale silver glow on the asphalt road

Gideon drove his car aimlessly, speeding through the desolate crossroads

 

Over the past few years, he had suffered from mild insomnia and enjoyed driving at high speeds on deserted roads when he couldn’t sleep, enjoying the thrill of speed

  The Pigeon Pair Saves The Marriage Chapter 1 Knock It Off Late at night, after having sex, Edith Jones lay on the bed, gently panting with slightly pressed lips, watching Gideon Peterson get off her. Having a pair of beautiful eyes, she turned to lie on her side. Gideon's profile, charming and handsome, was all she could see. However, she didn't mind his aloofness but still had a hint of expectation. She thought, 'Today is our wedding anniversary. Will he remember?' "Giddy, you..." she said softly first, wanting to say something more. But then, Gideon's phone suddenly rang. He didn't pay attention to Edith. He just reached for his phone, put it to his ear, and answered, "Hello." His voice was deep and husky, with the sexiness of just having made love. The person on the other end said something. Gideon's expression remained unchanged. He responded indifferently, "I'll be right there."
