The scene was not exciting enough for Gregory. He picked up the fried egg that should have been picked up by Elli and put it into his mouth complacently. Then he stood up and went to sit next to Elli. He looked at her with evil eyes, as if he was coaxing a child. "Come on, open your mouth. Let me feed you. Didn't you want to eat fried eggs just now?"

Didn't you often ask me to do that before? Gregory smirked secretly.

Elli felt angry, but she could do nothing. She held it for a long time before she said, "Are you crazy? Is it too much? "

"Shut up! Why are you shouting so loudly? Do you want others to come and see you like this?" Gregory frowned and showed an impatient expression.

Reminded by him, Elli's face turned red and her body trembled. Her family's business couldn't afford to be messed up again now, and her father's medical fees had to rely on the Mo clan's help. If her relationship with Gregory was discovered, the consequences would be unimaginable for her and her family

"Good girl!" his cold voice was full of affection.

Elli frowned and hesitated for a long time. Suddenly, her eyes lit up and she made up her mind to leave. She immediately left the seat, but she didn't stand firm in panic. As soon as she stood up, she was pulled by Gregory and then collapsed on his laps.

"Throwing yourself on me?"

Elli's pale face turned red in an instant. She wanted to stand up subconsciously, but her waist was held by his slender hands and then her whole body was held.

The hall was shrouded in tension.

"Gregory, you Don't do that. " Elli spoke incoherently and trembled with nervousness. She was so scared that she couldn't move. Then she felt a slight chill on her face. When she kissed him, she was in a cold sweat and looked at the man in front of her in horror.

"Ring, ring, ring..." The sudden ringtone of the phone startled the two people, and he immediately stopped and let go of her to answer the phone.

Elli's face recovered a little. She breathed a long sigh of relief, but she felt worried at once. She stared at him, for fear that he would come back again to continue his movement.

After a short while, the phone was hung up. Gregory put on his suit on the hanger and was about to leave.

Fortunately, Elli was finally relieved.

All of a sudden, something occurred to him. He suddenly stopped before stepping out of the house, which scared her. Then he turned his head and said in an evil voice, "Good girl, wait for me to come back!"

Then he left.

Come back? Did he wanted to continue what he did just now? Thinking of this, Elli shivered. When did he become so abnormal, so frightening and depressing……

She had lost her appetite because of what Gregory had done to her. She greeted Aunt Li and went back to her room.

Upon entering the bedroom, Elli was about to change into a loose Pajama and have a good rest when Jean came in.

"Elli, I know you didn't sleep well last night, but…… I still have to take up some of your time. I have something to talk to you. " As a middle-aged woman, Jean's face was well preserved, but it looked like she was a few years older last night just after one night.

With a faint expression on her face, Elli walked up to Jean but didn't know how to comfort her. She just replied in a gentle tone, "Mom, if you have anything to say, just say it. I will keep it in mind."

Then she helped Jean sit on the edge of the bed and kept silent for a while. When she began to feel uneasy, she heard Jean say slowly, "Did I treat you well?"

"Of course you treat me very well." Elli didn't deny it.

"Do you think the Mo clan is good to you?" A hint of cruelty flashed through Jean's eyes. She tried to lure Elli into the trap. Seeing that she nodded, she held her hand tightly and said, "Don't answer so quickly. I want you to tell mom affirmatively!"

Elli was at a loss. Did she really find out something?

"Mom, what's wrong with you today? I know you are sad that Jacob died." Elli answered cautiously, "But I will take good care of you for him in the future, so you don't need to worry."

"I'm really glad that you have such filial piety. However, although we are mother-in-law and daughter-in-law, we are the only close persons in the Mo family..." Jean took up a gloomy face. After a while, she sighed and said, "To tell you the truth, I suspect that the death of Jacob is not simple."

Elli showed a surprised expression and asked, "What do you mean?"

Jean calmed down and looked at her blandly, as if it was hard to tell, "In fact, I suspect that the murderer of Jacob is probably Gregory."

"What? How is that possible? "

"Why is it impossible? The Mo clan is rich and powerful, and many people are coveting its property. He has just come back for a few days when Jacob died. Do you think it is just a coincidence? " As Jean spoke, she looked at the surprised and uncertain eyes of Elli, and then exposed her doubts, "Yes, Gregory is the son

of master's ex-wife. He is entitled with part of the property of the clan, and there seems no reason for him to do such a thing, but you know? Greed has no limits. It's hard to say whether he is really willing to divide the property with him. "

"Mom, I know what you mean, but there is no evidence yet!" Elli's expression changed from surprise to calmness. What Jean said was reasonable.

"Anyway, I just feel unfair for Jacob. Meanwhile, now Jacob is dead, all the properties of the clan would be inherited by Gregory. When that day comes, we may suffer from bad times." Jean said indifferently. Suddenly, she changed the subject, with a strange look in her eyes, "In fact, before you married Jacob, I knew what happened between you and Gregory, but I didn't know he was the eldest maser of Mo clan at that time From now on, you should stay away from him. He is not easy to deal with. As he is too scheming, I'm afraid you will suffer losses! "

Elli trembled with fear, she was afraid that Jean would misunderstand something. "Mom, I can explain about this..."

"You don't have to explain anything to me. I believe you, or I wouldn't have said so much to you. Mom is just worried about you."

"Mom, what should we do now? Do you have any good idea?" Elli said anxiously.

Jean thought for a while and said, "I mean..."

Then she hemmed and hawed for a long time, but finally did not speak out her thoughts.

Elli couldn't wait any longer and grabbed her hand anxiously. "Mom, why are you still hesitate? Tell me what you can do!"

If the Mo clan's property was taken over by Gregory, then with his hatred and misunderstanding for her, how could he help her family!

Now, Jean, Elli and the Mo clan's property were in the same boat.

An imperceptible sinister smile appeared on Jean's face, and then she looked at her coldly and continued to speak kindly, as if she was about to cry. "I thought about it all night yesterday, and thought of the only solution, but I was afraid that you would be wronged."

"Mom, what is it?" Hearing that there was a solution, Elli had a little confidence in her heart. "Just say it. No matter what, I will follow you without grievance."

"Oh? Really? " Hearing that, Jean smiled with satisfaction. She held her hand tightly and said earnestly, "If you don't want our property to fall into the hands of others, the only way is making yourself pregnant."

Hearing this, Elli was completely shocked. Jacob was dead. How could she get pregnant?

"Mom, you know, I just met Jacob once at the wedding. After that, the accident happened. How…… How could I get pregnant? "

"Don't worry. As long as you listen to me, everything will be fine!" A mysterious smile flashed across Jean's kind face, and quickly disappeared. "My nephew, Pierce, is a good choice. If you are not afraid of being wronged, you can get pregnant with him and no one would doubt if I confirm that the baby is Jacob's. When we get the property, your family will be safe, and I can also enjoy the rest of my life. Besides, I will treat your children as my own grandchildren. Isn't it the best of both of us? "

Hearing this, Elli's eyes widened. She couldn't believe what Jean had said

Pierce? That playboy who does nothing all day long? He should become a reliable candidate to give birth to her baby in the mouth of Jean?

What on earth does she mean by saying that?

"Think about it carefully. Is your body more important than your parents' and your family's business? If the property of the Mo clan is gone, your family will doomed anyway. I won't force you. Think it over before telling me your decision." Noticing that she was a little unhappy, Jean's gentle face fell in an instant. In the blink of an eye, she seemed to have changed into another person, but her words were still very gentle. Then she loosened her grip on Elli's hand, stood up and walked out of the room.

The sound of the door closing startled Elli, who was already in a panic. At the same time, she felt that there seemed to be something hidden behind Jean's gentle and virtuous appearance, and she didn't even have the right to resist against her.

God, what on earth did she do wrong?

She had to abandon Gregory for the sake of her family. Now her husband was dead, her marriage was destroyed, and her mother-in-law advised her to devote herself to a playboy.

It was unfair!

She really cannot be reconciled.

At this time, Elli was exhausted. She lay back on the big soft bed. Her tears came out but were wiped away by her stubbornly. She couldn't just collapse like this, absolutely not!

Why not run away first? Suddenly, this idea popped up in her mind, but it was rejected by her at once. If she just ran away like this, her family would have no way out.

At this moment, the door was opened again. She thought it was Gregory, so she quickly sat up and saw Jean come in with some food.

Didn't she just left? Why did she come back so soon?
