Mr. Conrad Proposes to His Ex-wife Again

Chapter 763: You All Take Me as a Kid

Archer left instantly.

Darnell turned around. When he was about to leave, he saw Elaine watching him while hiding behind a pillar not far away. When meeting his gaze, she shrank back to the pillar.

He looked over at her and asked flatly, “What are you doing there?”

A few seconds later, Elaine walked out slowly and said in a low voice, “Uncle...”

Darnell put a hand in his pocket and asked calmly, “What can I do for you?”

Elaine stood in front of him, clenching her hands. She said with a nod, “I need to apologize to you.”

“For what?”

Elaine answered, “I made mistakes before. I was too willful. Please don’t take my words seriously. If... If you are outraged, please vent your anger on me. Don’t vent it on Great-grandpa and my father.”

After a long while, Darnell chuckled and asked, “Do you think I’m mad because you refused to marry me?”

Elaine pouted and clenched her fingers. “Not all because of that... I also said a lot of harsh words to you.”

She believed that she had gone too far.

She sounded as if Darnell had an evil intention on her.

He was unwilling to marry her.

She couldn’t help blaming this engagement that shouldn’t have existed.

Seeing that Elaine bent down her head lower and lower, Darnell said, “Forget it. You are just a kid. Now that we're no longer engaged, just move on and drop those trifles.”

For some reason, Elaine felt that Darnell was more tender than earlier when he used to talk to her.

She felt that he was coaxing her like coaxing a kid.

She retorted in a low voice, “I’m twenty already. You all take me as a kid. I’m old enough to get married already.”

Darnell was speechless.
