“Hudson?" Winnie almost fell over as she felt dizzy when she tried to stand up.
Hudson reached out and grabbed her arm. “Watch out!”
"Thank you,” Winnie whispered, and she did not expect to run into Hudson in this way.
Without speaking, he looked at her swollen eyelids, thinking she must have cried for one night.
As a woman, she could cry after being disappointed in love, but what about him? He could only keep everything to himself and disentangle himself from the past. But the pain would not be reduced or gone.
"Oh! This is a divorce certificate, yours!" said Winnie, handing the one with his name on to him.
Hudson reached for it without taking a look at it.
"Don't be out alone. Go back early!" Hudson said as he was about to leave. Winnie looked at him in a daze. There was still struggle and self-mockery in her eyes. Hudson walked, his pace slowing down. He turned back before he got to the car and stopped. He sighed with helplessness.
Winnie’s eyes had been lingering on him and there was nostalgia inside. She was surprised when he turned around, and she muttered, “Well, goodbye!"
In a panic, she was about to turn around when Hudson took her hand and said, "I'll give you a ride. Where are you going?"
She didn't know where to go, but she had been put in the car before she could answer him.
In the car, Winnie twisted her hands together with her head hanging, not daring to look at him, holding her breath.
“I, I, I don't know... " she stammered.
Hudson was silent.
Winnie was more restless as she had no idea where to go.
"Did you eat yet?" he finally asked.
She shook her head. “No, no!"
"Then go to dinner!" It happened that he didn't eat either.
Esther and Lena were in the lounge chair of the mall, bursting out laughing. “Lena, do you think I should have dinner at home? It is said that it is my home. The person who suddenly appeared is my father, but, strangely, I don't feel close to him at all. I don't even want to call him Dad. What can I do? But I promised Hudson to go home for dinner. I’m so stupid. I didn’t think twice about it. I’m regretful. Can you stand in for me?"
"Shoot! What’s wrong with you!" Lena said, "You are stupid. I felt sympathetic toward you when you were slandered by a reporter, but I did not expect Hudson and Ethel to be your brother! Now I think you deserve it! Hahaha... "
"Yes! I am stupid. Only Elijah is my man! They are all my brothers!" For the first time, Esther publicly admitted her relationship with Elijah. “How to do, Lena? I love you so much. How about turning one of my two brothers into your boyfriend?”
"Go to hell!" Lena pushed her away. “I don’t need a boyfriend! I am happy!"
"Ethel is a playboy! But Hudson is with Winnie! Why don’t we share Elijah?" Esther joked.
"Ah..." Lena screamed and scratched Esther's ribs. “Nonsense. What nonsense are you talking... But I think it may work. Let’s hang out sometimes! I don't have a problem!"
Esther laughed too. It was very nice to laugh. She said seriously, "No way. He’s mine. I won’t share him with anyone!"
"I know it! " Lena sneered, “All right, keep your man! I have my man, and to be honest, I have a child."
"Ah..." Esther screamed in a daze. "How can this be possible?"
"Tell you later!" It was time for class.
