The woman suddenly became quite serious with Elizabeth, “A man who has cheated on his wife can never be forgiven.”
Armand got the sorted documents from his office and walked to the woman, “Everything’s ready. Let’s go.”
“Where are you going?” Elizabeth suddenly became quite frightened, afraid that Armand would dump her.
The woman stood up. Armand tried to calm his grandmother down, “We have some business to deal with. I’ll be right back. Please wait here for me.” He winked at the receptionist, “Please keep an eye on her for me. Don’t let her go out. I’ll be back soon.”
“No! You can’t go.” Elizabeth pulled Armand’s arm.
“Mrs. Bernie, don’t you want me to be reconciled with Armand?” the woman deliberately asked. She wanted Elizabeth to stop pestering Armand.
Elizabeth was taken aback and answered, “Of course, I want you to reconcile.”
“All right. If so, please stay here and wait for us. We’ll go out for business. OK?”
Elizabeth hesitated for a moment and nodded in agreement, “Okay. You must come back as soon as possible.”
Armand patted her and answered, “Sure. We’ll be back soon.”
He stood up and looked at his client, “Let’s go.”
They walked out of the law firm together. The woman said, “Mr. Bernie, I always thought you were a good man. It seems I’ve made a mistake.”
Armand looked at her, “What do you mean?”
The woman smiled, “You should know it yourself.”
Armand pulled open the door of the car without explaining anything to her. He wasn’t close to this client. They were just working together now.
They went back to the firm pretty soon.
