Chapter 159 Remarry Him
Lucian frowned, and he turned his gaze away.
“Mr. Everhart, you’ve heard it yourself. Your daughter and I are just not meant to be. As for the
money I gave you before, please transfer it to my account within a week.”
Now, Zachary’s expression changed completely. The money Lucian gave him back then was not a
“You gave me that money out of your own will. How can you have the right to take it back?”
“I gave you that money so you would stop harassing my wife. Now that we’re divorced, I couldn’t
care less if you harassed her. Besides, would you listen to what you said back then?”
Lucian placed a small recording pen on the table. Zachary’s face darkened, and he gritted his
Lucian’s phone rang, and he looked at the caller ID. “I’m sorry, I need to take this call.”
With that, he got up and left. Zachary glared at Calista angrily.
“Agree to remarry him.”
Calista frowned. Did he think Lucian was just some street trash? Throw him away when you want.
Pick him up when you want. She firmly held her ground.
Zachary fell silent for a few seconds and surprisingly compromised.
“I won’t force you if you’re unwilling. But we can’t just forget about the Northwood family. Since
you don’t want to be with Lucian again, at least help him and Nikolette get together.”
After all these years since Calista married into the Northwood family, he had not enjoyed any
Calista widened her eyes in shock and finally understood why Nikolette had dressed up today. It
turned out that his father and sister had this plan.
“Nikolette and Lucian? In your dreams!”
She couldn’t help but exclaim. Even if Lucian were not a divorcee, he would never marry
Nikolette Zachary was furious, but he calmed down under Nikolette’s soothing.
He took a deep breath and said, “Since you managed to marry Lucian because of one night with
him, Nikolette can do it too. Although not as beautiful as you, she’s still a gem amongst rocks.”
He handed a small pill to Calista.
“Find a time to put this in Lucian’s drink. You’ll benefit as the eldest daughter of the Everhart
family if we make a fortune.”
Just as he finished speaking, Lucian returned from his phone call. Zachary hurriedly signaled for
Calista to put the pill away.
Calista put it away, but as soon as she turned her head, she sold him out, “My father asked me to
put this in your drink and arrange a room for you and Nikolette.”
She ignored Zachary’s fiery gaze and walked away. Lucian looked at the pill on the table, his eyes
as cold as ice.
“Mr. Everhart, you have some tricks.”
With those words, he left, leaving the two behind with grim expressions. The chair’s metal legs
scraped sharply against the floor, making an ear–piercing sound.
Lucian strode over with his long legs and quickly caught up with Calista, who had left a step
ahead of him.
Before he could speak, Calista said, “Was the money incident intentional on your part?”
It couldn’t have been a coincidence that he brought it up right after she refused to remarry him.
He was aware that Zachary would be flustered over it.
It seemed like everything was in his plan!
Lucian asked, “Miss Calista, why do you think I’m doing this?”
He was forcing her to remarry him! It was absurd to even think about it.
Lucian looked down at her with intimidation. He could figure out what she was thinking, seeing
the wave of emotion in her eyes.
“Forcing you to remarry me? Calista, you’re overthinking it,” he snorted.
Calista remained silent Some people should just keep their thoughts to themselves.
After leaving the restaurant, she returned to her apartment to pack her bags and moved to Yara’s
On the way, her phone was bombarded with calls from Zachary. She didn’t answer any of them
and eventually turned it oft
Zachary would surely cause a scene at her apartment if he couldn’t reach her.
She was returning to pay her respects to her grandfather in a couple of days and didn’t want any trouble at this moment.
Who knew what crazy things an enraged Zachary might do?
Calista booked a flight for the day after tomorrow and would have to endure another two–hour
drive after arriving.
Her grandfather was laid to rest in a city named Fort City. She used to spend two months there
After confirming the time, she called her uncle and told him she would return this year.
On the day she returned to Fort City, it started to snow. The roads and trees were covered in white,
creating a picturesque winter scene.
Yara drove her to the airport.
“Please convey my regards to your uncle and aunt, and bring flowers for your grandfather. Tell
him that I’ll visit him in person next year.”
“Sure. Take care. Be careful on the drive.”
After checking in her luggage, Calista proceeded through security. She had arrived early, and the
departure lounge wasn’t crowded yet. She kept her head down, engrossed in her phone.
After a while, someone approached her.
“Excuse me, is this seat taken?”
The warm and gentle voice sounded familiar. Calista looked up and saw Paul standing in front of
her with a suitcase. She was surprised.
“Paul, what are you doing here?”
He didn’t hide anything.
I’m here to pay my respects to your grandfather.”
The two families had been close for generations. Their relationship grew apart after her mother’s
However, Paul’s grandfather and her grandfather had always been good friends.
But even with their strong friendship, it was a bit surreal for Paul to come all the way here during
the holidays just to pay respects to her grandfather.
Facing her skeptical gaze, Paul smiled and explained, “My grandfather and yours were very close
friends. He wanted to come, but his health had been deteriorating these years. So, he asked me to
make the trip.”
Calista replied, “He’s tried his best. I’m sure my grandfather will be very happy to see you.”
Her grandfather always compared her to Paul and said that he would be relieved if she could be
half as sensible as him.
Half an hour later, they boarded the plane.
Paul had a first–class ticket, while Calista had an economy–class ticket. He had initially tried to
upgrade her or switch seats with her but was declined.
Calista had stayed up late chatting with Yara the previous night, so she put on an eye mask and
started to sleep as soon as she got on the plane.
Meanwhile, in the first–class cabin, Paul watched as Lucian, sitting an aisle next to him, arrived a
He asked disdainfully, “Why are you here?”
