Keep you in my arms

Chapter 252 Why Are You Afraid Of Being Lonely At Night

All the senior employees of the DC Capital Group knew that Mr. Edward didn't answer any phone calls
in meetings. The news that he hadn't rushed to the hospital to see his mother who was in a kidney
stone operation had been talked about until today! In the past four years, it was said that any call from
the CEO's wife would be answered immediately, and he even cut off some meetings halfway for his
wife, even some of them are emergency ones.

The new employees knew that Mr. Edward was very strict with his work and didn't allow anyone to
interrupt the meeting! It seemed that the person who called must be very important!

After Edward leaving the meeting room, the rest began to whisper with each other. They were very
curious about the person who called him, and it was not until Lucas coughed that they became quiet.

Edward strode all the way to his office and didn't call back until the door was closed. On the other side,
Angela had called for a long time, but no one answered. After hanging up the phone, the person on the
other side called her. She answered the phone in a hurry.

"What's wrong?"

On the other side of the phone, his calm and deep voice was not as anxious as just now, let alone any
other emotions.

"You..." All of a sudden, she didn't know where to start. She thought for a while and said softly, "I just
thought that the new semester is about to begin. I took a look at the new house first and found that this
is a villa."

"What?" There was a question in his tone, it seems that he was asking what's wrong?

"Uh..." She hesitated for a while. Although she felt that she was not as capable as him, she still frankly
said, "I may not be able to afford this house... I mean, the expense seems to be a little big!"

"I will be responsible for the maintenance of the house and the salary of the employees."

"I don't think it's a good idea! I have divorced you! Your future wife will mind!" After thinking for a while,
she felt it inappropriate to say so. She added, "if I get remarried, I'm afraid that the other party will also
care about this."

He remembered that when he gave her something before, she would say thank you happily, and her
eyes would be shining. He enjoyed her happy smile with shyness. But now, he gave her a big gift in the
name of his son, but got her words like this.

All of a sudden, his heart seemed to be blocked by a big stone.

Unable to hear any response, she thought it was because of the bad signal. "Hello? Can you hear


"This house is very beautiful. Although I like it very much, I don't think it's appropriate." Just like him, he
was talented, handsome and rich. Even if he liked her so much in his heart, it was not appropriate for
her to marry him! Even if he could get it, he could only feel the pressure that made people unable to

Since he divorced her, her tone had become much calmer than before. But it also made him feel a
sense of alienation. He said, "all the fees are my alimony for Eden. You don't need to feel
uncomfortable, because it has nothing to do with you. You only have to rely on your son, so there is no
problem whether you accept it or not."

I have to rely on my son...

His aggressive and cold tone cut her heart hard.

Angela didn't know how to respond for a while. She was stunned for a long time before she lowered her
head to hide the sad emotion in her eyes.

There was no response from the other side for a long time. He was a little nervous, but he suppressed
it. "Anything else?"

She came to her senses and forced a smile. "It's all right. I thank you on behalf of Eden."

Angela threw her phone into her bag. Seeing that she looked depressed, Lesley walked up to her and
asked, "what's wrong?"

"Nothing!" She restrained her bad mood.

"What are you going to do with this house?" Lesley asked.

"We'll live here! Move in tonight!" Now that he had said that she was relying on son to get this benefit,
why should she flatter herself?

"Do you really want to move in? What about those people?" She looked at the two lines of employees
who were waiting for Angela's words.

"He said he was responsible for the maintenance of the house and the salaries of these employees."

Although Angela said so, Lesley didn't feel excited in her tones. On the contrary, she sounded helpless.
She joked deliberately, "in that case, why are you sighing? She had taken advantage of him, but
seemed reluctant. I want to live in such a luxurious house too. You are born with a good life! Look at
the yard! The large space was good for the child's growth! Besides, when Eden gets older next year,
you can let him play water in the children's area of the swimming pool. Isn't that good? "

Angela certainly knew that she was comforting herself. She felt a little better after being comforted by
her, so she said, "then you can move in too? Just like in the H City, we live together. Look at this place.

It's so big. There are only two of us here!" We'll be lonely.

"Do you think that Eden goes to bed early and you'll feel lonely because you has been thinking about
something all night long?" In the past two years, she often tossed and turned at night, and sometimes
she even cried secretly. Lesley joked deliberately, "now without uncle, aunt and Carol's interruption, you
can ask Harriet to accompany you as much as you want. In this way, you don't have to be afraid of the
long night."

In Lesley's view, Harriet was considerate to her. Although his gentleness was weaker than that of
Edward, he was still a man who loved women, so she always wanted to make do with them.

Angela rolled her eyes at her and ignored what she said, "go back and carry the things! Come and live
here tonight!"

"Hey! Wait for me!" Lesley hurried to catch up with her.

In the CEO Office of the DC Building, Edward clenched his hands with phone.

Just now, she didn't hang up the phone, and he didn't hang up either. Suddenly, he heard the
conversation between the two. As soon as he thought of the word "lonely", he hung up the phone and
sneered, "lonely?"

Other men wanted to enter her room? Since she was lonely, there was no reason for him not to go.

Before he could recover from his anger, the phone screen lit up again. It was from Selina.

He answered the phone calmly and indifferently, "hello."

"Edward..." Selina called his name softly. If it were any other man, he would feel warm when he thought
of the beautiful and shy face of Selina.

However, when he heard her calling, he couldn't help frowning. "What's up?"

"Where do you want to choose for the wedding photos next month?" She asked cautiously.

"It's up to you!" He had already forgotten that.

"Okay, then let's go to Dubai?" She suggested.


When he was about to hang up, she asked excitedly, "are you free this weekend? Can you going to
pick wedding dresses with me?"

"I'm a little busy. You can pick whatever you like." His tone was so calm that there was no sign of a
groom to be.

"But aren't you going to have a try?"

"I've already given you the size. You can choose the style as you like." Then he hung up.

On the other side of the line, Selina wanted to ask if they should go and pick the jewelry together, but
he had already hung up. Although she felt a little disappointed and embarrassed, her friends were
looking at her, so she pretended to be happy, sweet and proud. She said, "Edward said we can go
wherever I want. The wedding may not be so fast!"

"If you go to Dubai to get married by the way, will we, as sisters, sign our passport as soon as
possible? !"
