Normally, no matter how harsh her words were, Amelia would not make a sound. But this time...

After a short moment of astonishment, Yolanda snorted, "Amelia, I know what you love most. Isn't it the photo of your mother? I've put the photo in the storage room. You don't have to worry about losing it. "

"Did you put my mother's portrait in the storage room?" Amelia widened her eyes and questioned her angrily.

"Yeah, that place is perfect since no one would go there. And the dead people like quiet. That place is absolutely quiet!" Yolanda didn't notice the rising anger on Amelia's face, and continued to explain the reason indifferently.

"Clap!" A sound of slap echoed through the whole wooden building.

"How dare you slap me, Amelia?" Yolanda was still in a daze as she covered her face with her hand.

"You know my bottom line. Do you think I'm easy to be bullied? You keep annoying me." Amelia said calmly and ran towards the storage room.

No matter how much injustice she had suffered, Amelia could bear it, but not her mother.

In the past, Iris had suffered too much grievances, so she had chosen to commit suicide for life without burden. Iris had never thought that she would be ridiculed by Sophia and Yolanda after she died.

The storage room was dark and most of the articles abandoned by the Mo family left there. Amelia opened the light and felt painful at the sight of the carton filled room. She held back her tears and opened every pile of things one by one, looking for Iris's portrait.

"Let me help you." Lucian suddenly spoke. His gentle voice comforted her sadness.

"Thank you." Amelia didn't refuse, and she didn't stop digging.

About half an hour had passed, but they still couldn't find Iris's portrait. By this time, her forehead was already full of sweat, and the room was closed, so she had a little difficult to breathe. She put one hand on the carton and began to breathe hard.

"You go out to get some fresh air. I will look for it." Lucian said gently to Amelia when he saw that she was ill.

Lucian insisted on it. How could she say she was tired.

She wiped the sweat off her forehead. Her eyes were sour and swollen, but she didn't shed tears.

When she thought of her mother, she tried her best not to shed tears, despite her sadness. Someone had said that it was better to smile in front of the dead so that they wouldn't worry about the people they care.

'Mom, don't worry. I won't put up with that anymore. I won't make you worried in the future.

"Yes, found it!" Amelia found the portrait of Iris in a carton. After she took it out, she held it tightly in her arms. Her tears, which she had repressed for a long time, finally fell down on her face.

"It's okay now." Lucian walked over and touched Amelia's head to comfort her.

Walking out of the storage room, Amelia didn't see Yolanda. Only Jasper stood in the living room, with a guilty look on his face. As soon as he saw her, he walked up to her and apologized, "Amelia, Yolanda's words are really too much. I apologize to you on her behalf."

Amelia was not that mad until he mentioned this. As soon as Jasper spoke, the flames of fury in her heart was ignited again.

She sneered with disdain, "Jasper, you have no right to apologize to me!"

Jasper was embarrassed. After a while, he said, "To be honest, I don't mean to own your room. But... Yolanda loves to compete with you over trifles. So whatever I say is useless. "

'Well, is he expressing his sadness as a hen pecked husband?

"Yes, she took away my stuff. The only thing that makes me feel lucky is that she took away the jerk around me and got me out of this sea of suffering." Holding Iris's portrait in her hand, Amelia finally spoke out all what she wanted to say. Iris seemed to have given her the power.

The expression on Jasper's face was frozen at once, and he felt that the person in front of him seemed to change.

"Amelia, take mom's photo back to our place where there is enough space for mom to have a quiet environment." Said Lucian in a gentle tone, holding Amelia into his arms.

The SJ Garden was situated at the foot of a mountain and beside a river. It was much quieter than the noisy Mo mansion.

The problem was that her marriage with Lucian was not that reliable. Was it appropriate for her to take Iris photos?

"As long as I can be with you, I don't care where she is." It seemed that Lucian noticed her hesitation, so he added.

Amelia raised her head a little. She saw at first that there was some stubble on Lucian's wheat color skin. He seemed to be careless about everything. However, he always gave her a sense of security at a critical moment.

She stopped frowning and smiled.

This scene deeply hurt Jasper's heart.

Before, Amelia had also looked at him in this way, and her eyes were full of gratitude. Now, Jasper could only see her smile happily to other men.

After returning to the SJ Garden, Amelia was about to take the portrait of Iris to the bedroom and put it in her place. At this time, she heard from Lucian, "Come with me."

Although Amelia was confused, she followed him.

"What is this empty room for?" The room was beautifully decorated without too much stuff. Only a f

ew pieces of furniture were placed. The ink wash painting on the wall implied a hint of classical style.

"Put Iris' picture here. I'll arrange for another altar for you to worship." Lucian pointed at the center of the wall and said thoughtfully.

Amelia didn't think it was so troublesome as long as she could keep the portrait of Iris by her side.

"Thank you. But it doesn't need to be so troublesome. My room is big enough to accommodate it." Amelia suddenly became polite and tightened the frame in her arms.

"There are bamboos and grass outside the window. The summer time is cool and the winter is still beautiful. Place the picture here and you can enjoy your worship." There was determination in his tone.

She didn't know what to say. It was much quieter here than in the Mo mansion.

And she was grateful for Lucian's indifference. After all, rich people tended to be particular about certain behaviors. It was generous that Lucian offered her to bring the photos here.

After placing Iris' photo on the table, Lucian bowed to the picture sincerely. After walking out of the room, he praised, "Iris was a beautiful lady."

Amelia smiled and said proudly, "My father told me that my mother used to be the campus Belle and many people were pursuing her!"

Looking at the happiness on Amelia's face, a slight smile crept over the corners of his mouth. "You didn't embarrass your mother."

Amelia had a delicate face. Her bright smile made people feel warm. Her innocence and purity made Lucian feel comfortable.

He had wanted to treat her with a cold attitude, but he found that she wasn't like those affected women. She was a kind of casual person that her expression of worries and emotions were natural.

Was he complimenting her? Amelia looked at him in surprise. She blushed and touched her face unnaturally.

Luckily, the bump on her face had been disappeared for a while.

"Lily, make some green bean soup for Mrs. Amelia during dinner." After answering the phone, Lucian said to Lily who was cooking dinner in the kitchen, "There's a dinner party tonight. Don't wait for me for dinner. Let Mrs. Amelia go to bed early."

"Okay." Lily nodded. Then she asked cautiously, "Mr. Lucian, is Mrs. Amelia pregnant?"

Pregnant! With a frown on his face, Lucian asked in confusion, "Why do you say that?"

How could it be possible for her to get pregnant when they slept in separate rooms.

"Then why did you sleep in separated bedrooms with Mrs. Amelia? And by rights, Mrs. Amelia's pregnancy is a big deal, so you should let her sleep in the master bedroom. " There was a confused look on Lily's face. She got more confused.

All of a sudden, Lucian's face darkened and said with a little seriousness, "Do your job well. Don't ask anything that you shouldn't ask."

If it was not warned by Lily, he did not notice the problem at all, but it was normal for Lily to be curious. After all, in the eyes of outsiders, he and Amelia were newly married.

When Amelia went downstairs, he couldn't find Lucian. At that time, Lily came out of the kitchen and said with embarrassment, "Mrs. Lucian asked me to cook green bean soup for you. He also told me that he has a dinner with a client tonight and you didn't have to wait for him. He asked you to go to bed early."

He sounded like a perfect husband with such a handsome face.

Amelia nodded with a smile and then sat at the table, inviting Lily to have dinner together. But Lily waved her hand, which showed her great fear, and said, "Mrs. Amelia, please enjoy your meal. I'll eat later."

Seeing the panic on Lily's face, Amelia stood up and walked up to her. She asked in a soft voice, "Can you join me? It's dull to eat alone. "

She felt kind of depressed when she lived alone in such a big house.

"Okay," Lily couldn't refuse but promised. She said happily, "Mrs. Amelia, I'm so lucky to meet a good tempered master like you."

Somehow, those words made Amelia sad.

"Lily, there will be no master or servant here in the future. If you are worried that Lucian will scold you, you can just call me Amelia in private. What's more, we can have dinner together when he is not at home from now on. What do you think?" Amelia had also been given the cold shoulder before, so she didn't want to treat Lily like a servant. In Amelia's eyes, Lily was just her little sister, not a servant. There was no way she would treat her differently.

"Mrs. Amelia, you... You are so kind-hearted. I just graduated from junior high school and found a job. I went to many rich people to be servants. Many of them were out of their minds, and they even got angry with me. Only you loved me as if I were their family. " Lily's face was full of gratitude, and her eyes were shining with tears.

After dinner, Amelia walked around the villa. She went back to the living room and watched TV with Lily. When it was ten o'clock, Lily said considerately, "Mrs. Amelia, you can go to bed first if you feel sleepy."

When she remembered that there was no need to wait for Lucian, and she didn't mean to stay up late either, she went back to the bedroom, washed herself up and was about to fall asleep. However, she couldn't fall asleep while Lucian showed up unconsciously in her mind.
