Impulsive Vow to an Enigmatic Husband novel Chapter 1300

Cornelia picked up her phone, cool as a cucumber, and started going through the news about Marcus, "Marcus died of illness. Marcus died in a car crash? Marcus..."

Grandpa Augustine spoke up, "Nelly, if you're upset, just say it out loud. You can't keep it all bottled up."

Cornelia laughed, "Grandpa, why would I be upset?"

Grandpa Augustine fell silent. He wasn't a fool. He knew Cornelia still had feelings for Marcus deep down. But she was too stubborn, too proud to admit she couldn't forget a man who'd done her dirty. So she had to act like she didn't give a damn.

However, she surprised Grandpa Augustine with her response, "If Marcus really kicked the bucket, nobody would know. The fact that news of his death is spreading like wildfire, and everyone knows about it, so it's probably fake news."

Grandpa Augustine asked, "Why would you think that?"

Cornelia said, "Based on what I know about Marcus, that's what I think."

Truth was, Cornelia didn't have a clue. She was just hoping things would turn out the way she wanted. She wasn't ready to admit that when she first heard of Marcus' death, for a split second, her mind was all over the place. She used mealtime as an excuse to pull herself together and think about how likely it was that Marcus was really dead.

Marcus had old injuries and was never in the best shape, but with Dr. Lester looking after him, he was on the mend. There was no way he'd drop dead because of that. As for the other rumors online, like an accident, it was possible. But the odds were slim to none.

Right! There was no way!

At least that was what Cornelia kept telling herself.

Grandpa Augustine suggested, "Why don't you give Granny Luisa a call and find out what's going on?"

"Okay." Cornelia found Granny Luisa's number. All she had to do was swipe her finger and she could dial Granny Luisa.

Cornelia looked at the number but couldn't bring herself to call. She was scared, scared of hearing bad news on the other end. But she knew running away wouldn't solve anything. She had to face the music. So, she gathered her courage and dialed Granny Luisa.

Before Cornelia could say anything, she heard a familiar laugh. Granny Luisa's voice sounded overjoyed, "Tahlia, great news, the Hartley family finally has an heir. You're amazing, you got knocked up by Marc so quickly. And here your sister Cornelia was with Marc for so long and never got pregnant."

Tahlia chimed in, "Granny, the doctor told me today the baby's already formed."

Granny Luisa said excitedly, "Really? Did they tell you if it's a boy or a girl?"

Tahlia said, "I didn't ask, nor do I plan to. Marc said he doesn't care if it's a boy or a girl, as long as it's mine, he'll love it."

Hearing this, Cornelia quietly hung up the phone.
