Chapter 565 They Are Annoying
Sean reluctantly acknowledged that Abigail’s temper had become quite foul. “She probably used to pretend to be gentle,” he thought to himself as he hopped into his car and sent her a text message. I didn’t do anything. Why are you mad at me?’
Unfortunately, he received no reply to his text. So, he sent another one. Abigail, can’t we get along?”
Still, there was no response. Eventually, he had no choice but to set his phone aside, sighing quietly. He then texted Xavien, ‘Find out where Abigail is.
Meanwhile, Abigail was in a lounge with Howard. As she had consumed a few drinks, she appeared somewhat melancholic. “Don’t you have other friends? Why did you ask me out for dinner and drinks?” Howard felt quite flattered. After all, compared to Abigail’s current status, he was just the CEO of Fairy Meadow and didn’t feel worthy enough to dine with her.
“You’re right, I don’t have any other friends,” she replied. Ever since she had immersed herself in her work. she hadn’t had any free time to make so-called friends. As a result, Howard had become the person she was closest to.
When Howard noticed her gloomy expression, he opened a can of beer for her. “Well, we aren’t really friends. Don’t drink too much. The last thing he wanted was to have to take her home.
She glanced at him. “What a failure I am. I don’t even have a friend.”
“Is Luna no longer your friend now that she has a boyfriend?” he teased.
She silently took a sip of beer and answered, “She’s already planning to get married. What about you?”
He wasn’t in a rush when it came to marriage. So, he leaned back in his chair and smiled contentedly. “I’m putting all my efforts into building my career
with you. Once I reach the next level, I’ll consider marriage.” Abigail couldn’t help but take another look at him. He simply grinned at her and said, “You have no idea. what it’s like in Capitalis, but you don’t need to. Even if you’re not part of that circle, everyone will try to get on your good side.”
In the design industry, Abigail held a rather high position. Regular celebrities and socialites would feel extremely proud whenever they invited her to design a dress for them.
“Indeed, I have no idea because I’m an artist,” she replied with a calm smile.
“It’s good that you’re unaware. Artists are more innocent, unlike me. I still want to climb the career ladder,” Howard said, taking a sip of his tea.
While they were casually chatting. Sean had quietly arrived and was standing not far away, observing Abigail as she spoke with Howard. He then slipped into a seat and continued to watch them from a distance.
As Abigail was nearly finished with her drinks and food, she asked, “How’s your relationship with your parents?”
“It’s alright, I guess,” he answered. “Why are you asking?”
She simply shook her head without saying a word. So, he took another sip of tea before calmly asking, “I remember that you only have your grandmother. What? Did you find your parents?”
He had heard a little about Abigail from Luna. When they were dating, Luna would voluntarily reveal some information about Abigail, such as her background-she didn’t have parents and only had her grandmother.
“You could say that.”
Abigail appeared upset. Howard fell silent for a few seconds before asking, “How do you feel about them?”
“Lawrence Pearson and his wife are my parents,” she said emotionlessly, but her face was filled with contempt.
This news shocked Howard because he clearly remembered everything that the Pearsons did to L.Moon. First, it was Vincent who was up to no good. Then came Lawrence and his wife. His hand, which was holding his cup, froze mid-air as he stared at her dumbfounded. Finally, he made sense of the entire situation before blurting out, “You mean… Kelly is an imposter, and you’re the real deal?”
Abigail nodded. “Yes.”
Howard couldn’t help but take a huge gulp of tea and release a long sigh. “You hate them, don’t you?” he asked.
“Well, not really. I just can’t accept everything that happened before and find them annoying,” she said nonchalantly.
If finding their daughter was the most important thing to Lawrence and his wife, then L.Moon was just as important to Abigail. Hence, the moment they targeted L.Moon, it was clear that their reconciliation. wouldn’t be an easy one.
Howard glanced at her before answering, Tcan understand what you’re going through. L.Moon is the result of your and Luna’s hard work. Yet, they wanted to destroy it just like that. If you hadn’t held on when they were ruining things for you, L.Moon wouldn’t have achieved such success today.”
She agreed with his words. Indeed, only those who had walked the path with her knew how frustrated she was with the Pearson Family. What does Sean know?
Just as Howard was about to say something else, his phone started ringing. When he saw that it was a call from his subordinates, he looked worried. “I’m afraid I can’t stay with you any longer. It’s already late, and I still have work to do.”
“You’re such a responsible CEO,” she remarked, waving her hand dismissively.
He looked worried as he stood up. “This is the downside of working in the fashion industry-constant fear and stress. The factory made a mistake, and I’ve been so anxious that I haven’t been able to sleep well,” he explained, hurrying away.
Abigail sat alone for a while and planned to return to the company. As she held onto the table for and was about to stand up, someone grabbed her hand. Her immediate reaction was to push the person away. But she was shocked to find that it was Sean when she turned her head.
“If I had known that it would bother you so much, I wouldn’t have told you those things. He looked deeply. into her eyes, his voice filled with remorse.
