"Okay, I'll get to the point," Mary said in a serious tone. "I don't want this accident to happen again, and it doesn't matter to me whether you did it intentionally or not. Valery's baby is the eldest grandson of our family. If anyone dares to hurt him, I will not spare that person."
"Don't worry. I won't do anything for her anymore." With a soft voice, Essie said these words in a neither overbearing nor servile manner.
There was a muscle on Mary's face that twitched a little. Last night, she asked Essie to take care of Valery but she didn't do it, and today she even said such words to block her. She wouldn't have dared to challenge the authority of her mother-in-law if she wasn't under the protection of Zac.
"Valery is pregnant. You are responsible for taking care of her. To be the lady of our family, you have to be tolerant and generous. If you are not mature yet and can't do this, you'd better not interfere in the affairs of our family for the meantime."
Mary's voice was slow and low, but full of threats.
Essie understood that Mary was quite unhappy about the fact that Albert had asked her to help his wife with running the household.
But she actually had no intention of taking part in the affairs of the family. In fact, she had even been thinking about how to refuse Albert. What Mary said caught her interest because she hated doing anything that would please her opponents. Apparently, her rejection of that responsibility was exactly what her mother-in-law and Valery wanted.
"Mommy, you're just overthinking things. That kid will be born from a concubine's belly, so he can't inherit the properties of the family. He won't be a threat to me at all. I will only end up destroying the relationship between me and Zac if I hurt him, and I am not that stupid. As for running this household, since daddy asked me to help you, I will do my best to live up to his expectations." Her tone was casual, as if she was just talking about some insignificant game.
Mary's face darkened. The word 'concubine' pierced her eardrums. "If you can't give birth to a son, then he wouldn't be just a concubine's son."
"Mommy, with all the advanced technology now, it's not difficult to have a son. And even if I don't want to have a son, there is always a way. I'm sure you'll be able to have a grandson." Essie smiled.
"Okay, I'll wait." Mary gritted her teeth and left.
Essie closed the door and a mocking smile appeared on her face.
Her mother-in-law was just like Vicki. The only different was Mary was arrogant and domineering, while Vicki was insidious and cunning.
Luckily, ice guy was born with indomitable spirit. He was a pretty unruly son and was not as blind and obedient as Baron. Otherwise, she would have left him at once.
By the time Zac came to their room, Essie had just finished taking a shower and was lying on the bed, ready to go to sleep.
He went over to her and said, "Honey, you smell good."
She raised her tired eyes and looked at him. "Is she feeling better now?"
"It's nothing serious. She'll be fine in a few days." He lay down beside her and added, "I really hope that her baby could be born as soon as possible." Just thinking of that happening, he heaved a sigh of relief. He would be free from all of this then.
But Essie didn't think so. She said, "It's your fault that you slept with Valery."
Zac replied with nothing but a helpless and bitter smile.
At that moment, he truly had an impulse to tell her all his hidden secrets.
But he couldn't. He had to be patient!
Essie looked at Zac while he was hurting deep inside and thought that he was wallowing in self-pity, so she changed her attitude and tried to comfort him. "Don't worry. You've learned your lesson this time. I'll take good care of you in the future."
With an evil and attractive smile playing at the corners of his mouth, Zac turned over and said, "My dear wife, you only have to be responsible for keeping me satisfied."
