The Enigmatic Return novel Chapter 541

Neera was stunned. "Why do you ask that?"

Adriana seemed in a mood. She leaned on the backrest and looked at Neera.

"Jean hurried over to help you tonight and protected you in every possible way. He's reliable. I don't believe that Jean doesn't like you. You should know better than me about him. If he's heartless, he wouldn't act like that. What about you? Did you fall in love with him?"

Neera pursed her lips slightly and did not know how to answer.

She knew Jean was good to her. She was not cold-blooded. It would be lying if she said she did not feel anything.

"If he can protect you firmly when you get bullied, I'll feel at ease. It's rare and difficult to meet such a person. Haven't you thought about being with him?"

Neera was silent for a moment and sighed. "It's probably difficult for us to get to that point."

"Why not?"

Neera said calmly, "His parents won't allow us to be together. They won't agree."

Adriana frowned. "What happened?"

Neera spoke calmly about what happened in the past few days without showing any emotion.

Adriana felt a little angry after hearing that.

"You're not bad! Why do they dislike you? What makes you unworthy of Jean? Isn't it only that you have children? Our triplets are so smart and cute that everyone envies us!"

Neera did not want Adriana to be unhappy because of such a thing, so she quickly comforted Adriana, "You don't need to be angry. I won't ask everyone to like my children. From their standpoint, they're not wrong. Nobody wants their son to marry a woman with three children."

As she spoke, she smiled as if she did not care. "If I want to find a companion, I must at least find someone who can accept my children and truly love them. But I have no plans to do it now. I already feel satisfied with my children by my side."

Adriana stared at Neera for a long time and finally sighed.

Adriana looked at the swaying red wine, suddenly lost the intention to drink it, and put it aside.

"Over the years, I've worked so hard to build my business empire to hope that I would be confident in whatever I do in the future. Later, I took you to my side and asked you to run the company with me because I hoped that ANXIN Group could also be your confidence. But I didn't expect you would still encounter such a thing when you're not inferior to anyone else!"

Adriana smiled self-deprecatingly. "Maybe we don't have that fate..."

Neera felt a little sad to hear Adriana's discouraged words.

"Aunt Adriana, haven't you planned to find someone you like in these years? In the past, you couldn't make your decisions. Now, you don't have to care about the Garcia family anymore. Why don't you pursue your happiness again?"

"My happiness..." Adriana looked at the night sky, and her expression was suddenly in a trance.

"When I was young, I wanted to stay together with him for the rest of my life, but I couldn't get him despite my best efforts. Now that I'm older, I've become timid."

Neera felt sad at first. But after hearing that, she caught something in Adriana's words.

"Aunt Adriana, what do you mean?" Neera asked, "It sounds like you're in a relationship."

Adriana was silent, then spoke, "When I returned to Kingsview, I met my ex. He wanted to reconcile with me."

Neera's eyes lit up. She did not expect such a thing to happen to Adriana. "What do you think? Did you agree?"

Adriana shook her head. "I haven't answered him yet. I don't know how to make a decision."

Adriana did not know how to choose, which meant she still had not completely let go of her ex. She still had a crush on her ex but seemed to have other concerns.

Neera could not help but guess, "Is your ex already married?"

Adriana denied, "No, he hasn't been married in these years."

Upon hearing that, Neera was stunned and then felt joy.

"Then what are you worried about? He still proposes getting together with you after many years. He has never forgotten you! If he still loves you, why don't you accept him?"
