“It was Lucian who let Essie stay with me. So, if you want to take her away, you’ll have to get his consent first,” Roxanne emphasized without al change in her expression. The little girl in her embrace immediately. chimed in, “I’ll do what Daddy says!”
As Sonya watched the mother and daughter duo presenting a united front, she felt her temples throb. After all, her son had already made such a statement. The answer she would get could not be more obvious if she made the call.
Roxanne’s saying that because she has no plans to let me take my granddaughter away! Most importantly, my son is siding with her. Ugh! I can’t do anything about it.
After waiting for some time and seeing that Sonya didn’t take any action, Roxanne said, “If you don’t want to make the call, then please. leave now. It’s getting late, and the children are. hungry. I don’t have the energy to prepare another person’s portion.”
With that, Roxanne put Estella down and gestured for the boys to take Estella upstairs. Once the children had gone upstairs, Roxanne. said, “Do as you please then.”
Without waiting for Sonya’s reply, Roxanne marched into the kitchen, completely ignoring. the former. Just like that, Sonya was left alone in the living room.
Glaring at the figure busy cooking in the kitchen, Sonya took a deep breath and hissed a warning, “Don’t you dare think you can be a part of the Farwell family just because Lucian and Essie like you. It won’t happen as long as I’m alive. Dream on!”
With that, she stormed out of the house in a huff. Roxanne had her back facing Sonya the entire time. Though she looked calm on the outside, deep down, she was tense.
When she heard Sonya leave, she breathed at sigh of relief inwardly. It was an ugly argument, but Sonya’s appearance had reminded Roxanne that it was still not time for her to reveal the truth just yet.
Sonya’s hostility toward the boys was obvious. Even when Lucian had already declared to the public that the boys were his, Sonya still regarded the announcement as fake news without even bothering to clarify.
It was clear that she had never accepted Archie and Benny. Even worse, the two boys weren’t even considered decent children in her eyes. That was all because of Roxanne’s sudden departure back then, which gave Sonya a bad first impression.
With that thought in mind, Roxanne felt incredibly apologetic. In fact, she began to regret not dealing with the situation properly. I should’ve been more humble. After all, I wanted her to accept the boys. Still, Roxanne could not think of another way to deal with Sonya when the latter kept pushing them into a corner.
Meanwhile, the children had been hanging out on the balcony the entire time. The second they saw Sonya’s car leave, they ran downstairs and approached Roxanne. “Mommy, are you okay?”
Roxanne recollected herself and sighed inwardly before forcing a smile and patting their heads. “I’m all right. Did I give you guys a fright just now?”
However, the children shook their heads and said indignantly, “Nope. We’re just frustrated.” Archie and Benny then cast her a serious gaze. “We want to protect you!”
Roxanne was so moved that she pulled them into her arms. “Thank you, Darlings. Please don’t take Grandma’s words seriously, okay? You’re all my precious darlings.”
Nodding obediently, they responded, “We know. You’re the best mommy on earth, too!” The fact that they were so understanding made Roxanne feel sorry for them and at the same time guilty. She could not resist hugging them tighter.
