Ex husband's Plea for Forgiveness

Chapter 17 It Was Over

"Since you have moved all your stuff here, do you plan to rent that house?" Kent asked. He was surprised to hear that Melinda wanted to rent an apartment when she had a home of her own.

"No, that's alright, I'll just leave it there for the time being."

Jonas knew the address to that house, so she wanted to change her living quarters and find a new place. Though, at the back of her mind, she was aware that there wasn't anywhere under the sun where she could hide from Jonas, if he wanted to find her.

"I have been too much trouble for you of late. I need to make it up to you. When I settle down, I'll treat you to a meal," Melinda stated while grateful.

Kent had always stood by her and always been there for her, when she needed support. However, there were some feelings that were cropping up and she didn't think she wanted to reciprocate them.

Melinda felt more comfortable living alone. She needed to be independent and to learn not to rely on others. Soon her life would be back to normal.

Nelson returned back to the Gu's mansion a week later. As soon as he arrived, he summoned Jonas to come home immediately.

"What is this that I have been hearing? If you don't give me an explanation today, I will..." Nelson reprimanded Jonas while still holding onto his crutch, but he was interrupted by the incessant ringing of a phone. Jonas was literally saved by the bell, but he instantly had a deep frown and his face became stiff when he saw the name of the caller.

"It's Mellie, answer it and put her on speaker phone."

Nelson had sharp eyes. Immediately he saw that it was Melinda who was calling. He ordered Jonas to put her on loud speaker so he could hear their conversation. He knew something was up but no one was telling him the truth. Jonas had no choice but to do as the old man ordered.

"Wow. So this phone actually works, my call has finally gone through this time and been picked." Melinda's surprised voice rang through the room. Hearing her statement, Nelson glared at Jonas, expressing his obvious disappointment at his grandson's behavior.

Jonas's eyes turned cold. He even wished he could use his cold voice to freeze Melinda.

"Why are you looking for me?"

"Jonas, what exactly do you want me to do to make you sign the divorce papers? What on earth do you want? Even Emily wants you to give me the divorce, right? Besides, the law will still grant the divorce as long as we have lived apart for more than two years," Melinda said, sounding agitated.

Meanwhile, Nelson's eyes seemed to grow bigger and widen with every sentence she said. They were as big as saucers filled with shock and anger. "I will not let you two get a divorce, neither are you going to live separately!"

"Grandpa?" cried Melinda in shock at the old man's declaration.

"Mellie, don't be afraid, I will help you and deal with my grandson accordingly!"

Nelson was always gentle and kind to Melinda, but he wasn't as gentle and loving to his own grandson, Jonas. He nearly never showed him any form of affection.

The phone was soon hung up before Melinda could react. At the Gu's mansion, the two looked at each other coldly.
