Chapter 976 Give Her To Me
Thirty minutes later, Sonya’s car slowly came to a halt at the entrance of the Farwell residence. By then, Estella, who was sitting in the back seat, had gone quiet.
Sonya heaved a sigh of relief inwardly because she thought Estella was finally done crying after crying throughout the journey home. To her surprise, she saw that Estella’s face was still covered in tears when she opened the car door.
Estella had gotten tired from all the crying, but she was still crying silently. Upon seeing Sonya opening the door, Estella didn’t even bother turning her head toward Sonya.
Sonya’s heart ached when she saw her granddaughter sobbing silently. She reached out to lift Estella into her arms and consoled helplessly, “Why are you still crying? Do you really like Roxanne that much? Do I not treat you well enough?”
Estella shook her head. Sonya’s heart sank when she saw that. Is Essie turning rebellious because of Roxanne? This little girl doesn’t even want me anymore.
Her anger toward Roxanne intensified. Right when Sonya was about to say something, Estella suddenly wrapped her arms around Sonya’s neck.
She was using her actions to show Sonya that she was still fond of her. Noticing the gesture, Sonya felt better, and her expression softened.
While wiping the tears off Estella’s cheeks, Sonya said, “Listen to me, okay? Since she doesn’t want you, we’ll also shut her out!”
Back then, Roxanne’s cruel decision to abandon Estella had always been a thorn in Sonya’s side.
Estella didn’t know what Sonya was talking about. She thought Sonya was badmouthing Roxanne, and she started crying once again.
At that moment, Sonya felt utterly helpless and frustrated. All she could do was carry Estella into the mansion.
“Mrs. Farwell, Ms. Estella,” Catalina greeted respectfully when she saw them walking in. She had been upstairs telling Lucian to head down for a meal.
As soon as she finished her sentence, she noticed Estella’s face was drenched in tears.
Before she could react to it, Sonya demanded, “What are you waiting for? Go and prepare the dishes Ms. Estella likes to eat! Quick!” Sonya then patted Estella’s head and coaxed in a gentle tone, “What would you like to eat, Essie? I’ll get Catalina to prepare for you…”
Sonya spoke while carrying Estella toward the couch in the living room.
“Daddy…” Estella suddenly called out and let go of Sonya’s neck.
Sonya was stunned.
In the next second, she heard a set of heavy footsteps approaching her.
After that, she heard her son saying unhappily, “Didn’t you say you give up?”
Lucian furrowed his brows and reached out to carry Estella.
Sonya didn’t react in time, so she didn’t let go of Estella immediately. At the same time, she was feeling guilty.
Soon, Estella’s sobs grew louder, and she started struggling to break free.
Finally, Sonya regained her senses and saw her granddaughter struggling in her arms. Upset, she sat down on the couch with Estella still in her arms.
“I want Daddy!” Estella cried and stared at Lucian.
Lucian stood where he was and said, “No matter how angry you are, you can come at me. Essie is feeling uncomfortable, so I suggest you give her to me.”
Needless to say, Sonya’s heart wrenched in pain.
She could let go of Estella, but she couldn’t accept the fact that her granddaughter was fighting so hard to break free from her embrace. The thought of Estella’s attachment to Roxanne brought her anger to new heights.
