When Ethan saw the wariness in Olivia’s eyes, he knew that she treated him more like an enemy than
Ethan sighed. “Don’t worry, Liv. I won’t do anything to you.
“I came here today to tell you that your favorite musician, Amadeus, is holding a concert here.
“I bought tickets, so let’s attend the concert tomorrow.”
Olivia stared at Ethan suspiciously, wondering if he was plotting something again.
“Liv, I don’t mean anything else. Amadeus hasn’t made an appearance for the past few years.
“I know that you’ve always liked him, and this concert may be the last one he’s holding for good.
“I don’t want you to miss it.”
Speaking of, it had been two years and six months since Olivia attended any concert at all.
The last time she attended an event like this was the Fruit Jam Music Festival three years ago.
Olivia and Ethan were wearing matching outfits, and they both wore caps.
As she stood among the young people, she sang along to her heart’s content.
Back then, she was cheerful and adorable, and she was extremely vibrant. She had the unique liveliness of people her age.
But now, she was lifeless. There wasn’t any light in her eyes. She no longer had the vibrant liveliness
of her age.
Seeing that Olivia had remained silent, Ethan placed the tickets on the table.
He said in a gentle voice, “Liv, I know that you’ve suffered a lot for the past two years.
“You can hate me and complain about me, but no one can change what has already happened. I only wish for you to move past the pain.”
Olive replied curtly, “Got it. I’ll go. I’m tired now.”
Ethan didn’t bother her any longer. He turned around and left.
Olivia touched her flat tummy. Because of the stress she endured in the past two years, she had lost the positivity of normal people.
“She was filled with nothing but negative thoughts.
It was fine if it were just her, but now, she had a new life budding in her tummy. She had to be
considerate of her child.
The best prenatal education would be maintaining a good mood every day. She couldn’t be too sullen.
After all, a child and their mother are connected. Since she had ended up with this young life, she had to take responsibility for them.
In the dark, Olivia curled her body up. She looked like a shrimp.
She had already gotten used to this posture ever since she lost her previous child.
She gazed at the faint street lights outside, a dazed expression on her face.
After experiencing all those things, she wondered if she could still be a normal mother.
Her future was shrouded in stormy clouds. No one knew what would become of it.
Olivia swore in her heart, “My baby, I swear I’ll protect you this time.”
The next afternoon, Olivia opened her wardrobe to pick out an outfit she would wear to the concert.
Her wardrobe was filled with various clothes, unlike the way it had looked before her divorce.
To torture her, Ethan had asked people to take away all her luxury bags and clothes.
Now, items from all the luxury brands in the world had gathered in her wardrobe.
The tags were taken off, and the clothes were even washed and ironed. They hung in neat rows on the
As soon as she opened the wardrobe, she was greeted by the natural fragrance coming from the
In the past two years, Olivia was used to wearing cheap clothes she got online.
It had been a long while since she dressed up properly.
Looking at the pretty dresses, she let her fingers run gently across them.
The clothes were high-quality in both tailoring and fabric. She suddenly felt the
urge to cry.
She used to be a woman who was pampered from a young age. Jeff even got a mentor to teach her etiquette. She was a carefree princess, and she lacked nothing.
But now, she couldn’t believe the fear and uneasiness she felt when she touched the smooth fabric. This princess had long since fallen into the mud. Like a beggar, she became worried about everything.
